​Ramblin' Shoes

This song is by Slim Dusty and appears on the album Me and My Guitar (1972).

I'm feelin' down and lonesome and you might laugh at me
Sittin' in the deep depths of the blues
I'm sittin' here a'talkin' to two old friends of mine
A pair of busted worn out knocked out shoes
Although they might be covered with dust from many miles

Oh I love them so my worn out ramblin' shoes
Oh I love them my worn out ramblin' shoes

My life has turned a tumble I'm walkin' here in town
But it's not the kind of life that I would choose
But there will come a mornin' when I'll light out again
Proudly wearing you old ramblin' shoes
And your soles will all be mended and you'll be shinin' just like new

Steppin' out again old ramblin' shoes
Oh steppin' out again old ramblin' shoes

So don't you come a stompin' into my dreams at night
Givin' me these awful city blues
Oh you're placed here by my bedside so don't you move again
Or I'll lock you up until it's time to move
But you're made from Gypsy leather like the sinews of my heart
And that's why we get along old ramblin' shoes
Oh that's why we get along old ramblin' shoes

So when I walk that last road to the wanderers camp on high
I hope I'm taken with the chosen few
My clothes will not splendid my manners not so neat
But I'll be wearing you old busted worn out shoes
And the men on high are wise men and they'll see what we've been through
And say welcome home old worn out ramblin' shoes
Oh welcome home old worn out ramblin' shoes
