Can hive show external table filenames?

"show tables" shows the HDFS directories which correspond to Hive tables and various select queries show data from inside the files (each row of a file being a row of the overarching table that the entire directory represents)...or so I have convinced myself...but can Hive show the HDFS filenames?  Or is "hadoop fs -ls" the only way to do that?
