The song is on Frampton Comes Alive! which entered the Kent Music Report album charts on 5 April 1976 and peaked at #8.
In Show Me the Way, Frampton is a drowning man looking for someone to throw him a life preserver. The lyric is rather vague, but it’s clear he is seeking guidance, asking another to “show him the way.”
The lyric could relate to a specific person or to a higher power; Frampton kept it universal on purpose, but he did have a specific inspiration in mind. “I just met somebody that gave me such confidence,” he told Melody Maker in 1976. “My life is completely changed. All the lyrics in that song are about me and her.”
