Blue Shoes White
Words and Music by: Larry Norman One, two, three, four... I had the rhythm of living in my shoes Along come the rhythm and blues The blues caught up and put me in a trance And my shoes refused to dance, dance, dance, dance, c'mon. My life began to slip and slide And I had no hope, no place to hide I borrowed a gun, I had nothing to lose I figured it's time to hang up my shoes. He came along that very day He asked me why I walked this way My soles half worn and my tongue hung about With broken laces I'm tripping out He said to me, "Get up and walk." And I said, "Why don't we sit down and talk?" He said, "How 'bout a new sword?" Uh-uh, no chance I'm gonna put these shoes in an ambulance. He reached right out and touched my toes Everybody knows how the rest of the story goes If you're steppin' through life then my appeal Is to follow in His footsteps and get your soles re-heeled And if ya, uh, wanna give your feet a treat Honey get ready to walk down those golden streets But be careful how you use your shoes And don't waste your time on the rhythm and blues. He turns blue shoes white He turns blue shoes white He makes your wrong feel so right He turns your black soul white, that's right He turns blue shoes white, c'mon man He turns blue shoes white He turns blue shoes white!
