These Boots

Yeah I know these boots look worn

They’ve seen their better days

Naw I don’t wear ‘em much anymore

But their worth to me is beyond appraise

Walked a thousand miles in these boots

Maybe more believe it or not

Been stranded and left for dead

Been lost, been found, been freed, been caught

Rode a bull in old Cheyenne

Spurred that sucker every jump

Won a buckle, yeah here it is

When I recollect my heart does pump

 I got married in these boots

You should have seen her in that dress

Our first dance, wow, but her poor toes

Sorry darlin’ but you done said yes

I had em’ on when our first was born

They paced up and down that hall

Then there she was my baby girl

So pretty, so pure so helpless, so small

These boots have left their prints

All over this country I love

And I know I’m just regular guy

But if push every came to shove

I gladly lay down my life

For all things that I hold dear

You see I know where I’m going

So there’s nothing really to fear

Been hired and fired in these boots

Been hurt bad a time or two

Been so dang scared, almost shook ‘em off

Done things I’d never admit to you

 My sweat and blood has filled these boots

That one got chewed by my old hound

Back when he was just a pup

But last fall I put him in the ground

 Yeah I’ve had ‘em resoled many times

But I think I’ve put them through enough

So maybe I’ll let ‘em rest awhile

They’ve proved that they are dang sure tough

 And when I finally leave this world

Please remember this last request

Shine ‘em up, place ‘em on my feet

As I ride off to face that final test
