Lace Up Shoes (CHORDS) by Slim Dusty

[Intro]~
G    F       C


[Verse]~
C                                      D
Let me tell you a little story bout the way things used to be

  G                       F      C
My Dad took me to Sydney back in 1943

F                                              C             AM
He said Son you’re not wearing those they’d call us bush galoots

G                                         F                 C
If you went out and walked about in those high-heeled riding boots


[Chorus]~
   F                                   C
But I stand back and laugh today at the way that times have changed

  F                                      C                G
So many town-folk dressed as if they just stepped off the range

  F                        C                   AM
But that day back in 43 I could not pick and choose

  G                             F                 C
The day me old man made me wear a pair of lace up shoes


[Verse]~
    C                               D
We went out to regal Zonophone on Parramatta road

   G                                 F                    C
We walked along Columbia lane where some famous feet have strode

        F                               C                        AM
But the man in charge was not impressed,.. Don’t call us we’ll call you

      G                                                F                 C
And to make things worse my feet still hurt from those dammed new lace-up shoes


[Verse]~
        C                                 D
And there were soldiers everywhere in town six o’clock was closing time

          G                                  F                 C
And if you didn’t tip everywhere you went the yanks won all the time

      F                                         C                    AM
I was pushed along as I dreamed of home where the skies were clean and blue

    G                                      F                  C
Far away from this rat race in town and big mobs with lace-up shoes


[Chorus]~
   F                                    C
But I stand back and laugh today at the way that times have changed

F                             C                          G
So many town-folk dressed as if they just stepped off the range

F                        C                  AM
But that day back in 43 I could not pick and choose

  G                          F                   C
The day my old man made me wear a pair of lace-up shoes


[Verse]~
  C                                         D
Now as I look back on the singing track since 1943

    G                                      F              C
The harder I worked,.. you know old mate,.. the luckier I seemed to be

         F                                    C                AM
But I’ve always sung of the old home run in the best was that I knew

       G                                             F                C
But I still feel bad when I think of Dad and those dammed new lace-up shoes


[Chorus]~
    F                                    C
Yeah I stand back and laugh today at the way that times have changed

  F                                  C                    G
So many town-folk dressed as if they just stepped off the rage

    F                                   C                   AM
I’ve lived my life with few regrets,.. the same again I’d choose

      G                                           F                 C
And Be flat as a tack in this old felt hat with my pair of Williams shoes!


[Outro]~
G     F       C
