Charlie's Shoes 
recorded by Billy Walker
written by Roy Baham
C C7 F
I'd like to be in Charlie's shoes that's what I always said
G7 C
Cause he had you and every-thing tied with a golden thread
C7 F
Then Charlie left and went away and when I got the news
G7 C
It wasn't long till I was walking round in Charlie's shoes

C7 F
Now I'm wearing out the shoes that Charlie wore
G7 C
Walking back and forth across the floor
C7 F
The troubles that drove him away I've got for company
G7 C
These nights in Charlie's shoes are killing me

C7 F
The greener grass that turned my head so swiftly did turn brown
G7 C
Cause every little dream I built she's always tearing down
C7 F
I never knew old Charlie's shoes could have so many tacks
G7 C
Of disappointing sorrows and I wish he had them back
