Story

Allan sings this one from our Slippin' Away CD.  We did a slow blues version on our first album.  This features Danny Krieger playing that screamin' guitar.  Yeah, I'd like to claim it but anyone from Tucson would know.  Enjoy!

Lyrics

Old Shoes

Words and music by Neil McCallion

 

Old shoes brought me here

Them old shoes brought me here

To my little dulce buena, TV and a bottle of beer 

 

Them new shoes just don't fit

Them new shoes just don't fit 

And I do not like them, not one little bit

 

Countin' the jack in a Cadillac, they know when you're goin' in style

Or your pick up truck's run out of luck and you're walkin' that country mile

Bullets are flyin', mothers are cryin'

They know when you're layin' low

Bare feet may be more discreet but what you gonna do when it's cold?

 

Them old shoes been around the block

Them old shoes been around the block

They'll get you out the back door when there ain't no time for socks

 

Old shoes brought me here

Them old shoes brought me here

To my little dulce buena, TV and a bottle of beer
