Baby Needs A New Pair Of Shoes

This song is by Joe Ely and appears on the album Happy Songs From Rattlesnake Gulch (2007).

All my people need food and water
And Baby needs a new pair of shoes
July sun gettin' hotter and hotter
And Baby needs a new pair of shoes

I went to the courthouse to speak my mind
They told me to stand in a long long line

All of my people need freedom and grace
Baby needs a new pair of shoes
July sun shinin' in my face
Baby needs a new pair of shoes

I wanna talk to the people who run this town
I'm gettin' tired of this merry-go-round

All of my people need common respect
Baby needs a new pair of shoes
July sun burning down my neck
And Baby needs a new pair of shoes

All I wanna do is to get back home
Instead of wastin' away at this Superdome

All of my people need food and water
And Baby needs a new pair of shoes
July sun gettin' hotter and hotter
And Baby needs a new pair of shoes

All of my people need freedom and grace
Baby needs a new pair of shoes
July sun shinin' in my face
Baby needs a new pair of shoes

All of my people need...
All of my people need...
All of my people need...
All of my people need...
You got to pass it around
Pass it around...
