New Boots

He’s gone an’ bought some new boots
They’re gonna take him a walkin’
Time to make some new roots
Let his feet do the talkin’

He’s been stuck in a rut, no lie
Doin’ the same thing everyday
He tried for change, wings to fly
But fate decided it had games to play

He’s gone an’ bought some new boots
They’re gonna take him a walkin’
Time to make some new roots
Let his feet do the talkin’

He kicked around his area local
Drove him made to a point he’d break
Sometimes he’d lose it total
With those that told him stories fake

He’s gone an’ bought some new boots
They’re gonna take him a walkin’
Time to make some new roots
Let his feet do the talkin’

Spends most of his time in bars
Knockin’ back whiskies till dawn
Sometimes he knocks it back hard
And wakes up with a head sore

He’s gone an’ bought some new boots
They’re gonna take him a walkin’
Time to make some new roots
Let his feet do the talkin’

But now he’s had enough
Time to change his ways
Had it up to his eyeballs feeling rough
Time for some fresh new days

He’s gone an’ bought some new boots
They’re gonna take him a walkin’
Time to make some new roots
Let his feet do the talkin’

Gonna let his feet do the talkin’
Gonna make new roots
They’re gonna take him new places a walkin’
Those cool new boots
