Shoeshine Man Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall
G Well I met a man in Montgomery Alabama C G I was waitin' on a bus and he was shinin' shoes
And I heard him say
D7 G I'm a shoeshine man number one in the land C G A shoeshine man make you shine where you stand D7 G Leave me a tip if you can I'm a shoeshine man
Well I can sing I can dance I can play the harmonica too C G I got a brand new thing on the South Side Montgomery Blues D7 G You better stick around and watch me cause I'm an entertainin' fool
Well I learned my trade from that rag-poppin' daddy o'mine C G He shined twelve alligators made a hundred dollar bill one time D7 G So when the meat gets scarce I shine two or three pairs for a dime
I had a girl that helped me she had a lotta hoochy coochy ways C G She was bumpin' and grindin' paid that girl a dollar a day D7 G But she was shy on age and the law come and took her away
