Big mama sings out loud and out of tune.
"Has anyone seen my walking shoes."
Them shoes have been with me when I had nothing to eat.
No roof over my head my home was on the streets.
Them shoes helped me when life was unkind.
Kept me going when I almost lost my mind.
Them shoes are a reminder of where I have been.
So I look at each day as a beginning and not the end.
Them shoes will carry me to a day I will see.
