The Christmas Shoes

Year: 1985 -

	  		
Intro: G G/F# Em Em7 C D  

G             G 
It was almost Christmas time,   
Em                G 
There I stood in another line,  
C                  D  
Trying to buy that last Gift or two,   
Am7               Dsus      D  
Not really in the Christmas mood.  

G                 G 
Standing right in front of me,   
      Em                 G 
Was a little boy waiting anxiously,   
C                 D   
Pacing round Like little boys do,    
Am7                 Dsus  D        G  
And in his hands he held a pair of shoes.  

        Em                    D  
And his clothes were worn and old,  
       Em                 D  
He was dirty from head to toe  
Am7                      G/B   
And when it came his time to pay,   
  G                      Dsus      D     
I couldn?t believe what I heard him say.  


               A         E  
Sir, I want to buy these shoes,  
       F   F    
For my momma please,  
     D                       E                  A2    (F  E)  
It's Christmas eve and these shoes are just her size.  
           A     E  
Could your hurry Sir,  
                  F      F  
Daddy says there not much time,  
        D                   E  
You see she's been sick for quite awhile  
      D                     E   
And I know these shoes will make her smile   
      D                E  E  
And I want her to look beautiful  
   Bm7 A   D  E  A      (E  F  D2)  
If momma meets Jesus tonight   

             A                A  
They counted pennies for what seemed like years,  
         F                      F  
Then the cashier said son there's not enough here,  
D                       E  
He searched his pockets frantically,   
Bm7                E      E      
Then he turned and looked at me.  

         A                    A  
He said, Momma made Christmas good at our house,  
       F                 F 
Though most years she just did without,  
        D             E   
Tell me Sir what am I gonna do  
     Bm7             E E                  A  
Some how I?ve got to buy her these Christmas shoes.  

     F            E     
So I laid the money down,  
       F             E  
I just had to help him out,  
         D                E  
And I?ll never forget the look on his face  
             D  
When he said mommas gonna look so great.  

               B         F  
Sir, I want to buy these shoes,  
       G#B     G    
For my momma please,  
     E                       F                 B2    (G#B  F)  
It's Christmas eve and these shoes are just her size.  
           B     F  
Could your hurry Sir,  
                  G#B      G#B  
Daddy says there not much time,  
        E                   F  
You see she's been sick for quite awhile  
      E                     F   
And I know these shoes will make her smile   
      E                F    
And I want her to look beautiful  
   C BM7   E  F  B  
If momma meets Jesus tonight   

  C                         Bm7        
I knew I?d caught a glimpse of heaven?s love   
   F                 G#B  
As thanked me and ran out  
            A                 E            F  F  
I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me  
     C             F 
What Christmas is all about.
