Billy Walker Charlie's Shoes Lyrics

I'd like to be in Charlie's shoes that's what I always said

Cause he had you and everything tied with a golden thread

Then Charlie left and went away and when I got the news

It wasn't long till I was walking round in Charlie's shoes

Now I'm wearing out the shoes that Charlie wore

Walking back and forth across the floor

The troubles that drove him away I've got for company

These nights in Charlie's shoes are killing me

[ whistle ]

The greener grass that turned my head so swiftly did turn brown

Cause every little dream I build she's always tearing down

I never knew old Charlie's shoes could have so many tacks

Of disappointing sorrows and I wish he had 'em back

Cause I'm wearing out the shoes...
