Christmas Shoes
[Intro] 
G G/F Em Em7 C C C D

[Verse]
G                G/F               Em
It was almost Christmas time, and
                  Em7          C
there I stood in another line,
                        D            Am7
Trying to buy that last gift or two,
                     D
not really in the Christmas mood.

G                   G/F              Em
Standing right in front of me was a
                   Em7        C
little boy waiting anxiously. 
                      D            Am7
Pacing 'round like little boys do, 
                      D              C
and in his hands, he held a pair of shoes.

Em                    D
And his clothes were old and worn,
       Em                  D
He was dirty from head to toe
    C                D
and when it came his time to pay, 
  Am7                     D
I couldn't believe what I heard him say:

[Chorus]
               A           E
Sir, I want to buy these shoes
       F#m      F#m/E 
for my momma, please. 
     D                          E                 A
It's Christmas Eve, and these shoes are just her size.
          A           E
Could you hurry, sir?
                   F#m            F#m/E
Daddy says there's not much time.
         D                     E
You see,   she's been sick for quite a while,
      D                       E
and I   know these shoes will make her smile,
      D                E
and I want her to look beautiful 
   Bm7         E7      A        Bm7  E7
if momma meets Jesus tonight.

[Verse]
             A                  A/G
They counted pennies for what seemed like years, 
        F#m                         F#m/E              D
and the cashier said, "son, there's not enough here." 
                          E           D
he searched his pockets frantically, 
                      E                       A
then he turned and he looked at me. He said,
                      A/G                     F#m
"Momma made Christmas good at our house, and  
                    F#m/E
most years she just did without, 
        D              E
tell me sir, what am I gonna do?
    D               E                       A
Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes.

F#m                  E
So I laid the money down,
       F#m              E
I just had to help him out,
         D                  E                            D
and I'll never forget the look on his face when he said  
                      E
momma's gonna look so great.

[Chorus]
               B           F#
Sir, I want to buy these shoes
       G#m      G#m/F# 
for my momma, please.
     E                          F#                B
It's Christmas Eve, and these shoes are just her size.
          B            F#
Could you hurry, sir?
                   G#m            G#m/F#
Daddy says there's not much time.
         E                     F#
You see,   she's been sick for quite a while,
      E                       F#
and I   know these shoes will make her smile,
      E                   F#
and I want her to look beautiful 
   C#7m        F#7     B        
if momma meets Jesus tonight.



[Bridge]
           C#m7                 B
I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love
      C#m7               B
as he thanked me and ran out.
            A                    E          F#
I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me 
     C#m7              F#7
what Christmas is all about.



[Chorus]
               B           F#
Sir, I want to buy these shoes
       G#m      G#m/F# 
for my momma, please. 
     E                          F#                B
It's Christmas Eve, and these shoes are just her size.
          B            F#
Could you hurry, sir?
                   G#m            G#m/F#
Daddy says there's not much time.
         E                     F#
You see,   she's been sick for quite a while,
      E                       F#
and I   know these shoes will make her smile,
      E                   F#
and I want her to look beautiful 
   C#7m        F#7     B        
if momma meets Jesus tonight.

E                  F#
I want her to look beautiful
   C#m7        F#7   B
if momma meets Jesus tonight.

[Outro]
