lyrics

The dirt and the dust, the mud and the rain
You may know some they’ve carried through the joy and the pain
Tough enough to take a beating, just like you
When you stop to shine them up, they can take that too

Your feet aren’t the first to fill these boots
And they won’t be the last
There’s comfort in the truth
You can ask the younger me who couldn’t see while he was trying to go alone
That he was not the only one to walk a mile or even own
These boots

There for the coffee, there for the wine
For you like they were for me when they were mine
With you when you’re home and when you’re miles away
Somebody’s gonna hear you when you say what you gotta say

Your feet aren’t the first to fill these boots
And they won’t be the last
There’s comfort in the truth
You can ask the younger me who couldn’t see while he was trying to go alone
That he was not the only one to walk a mile or even own
These boots

It’s the medicine you might not want to take
I know it’s easier to tell yourself old lies
But friend, if you can learn from my mistake
Sooner than I did, you’ll realize

Your feet aren’t the first to fill these boots
And they won’t be the last
There’s comfort in the truth
You can ask the younger me who couldn’t see while he was trying to go alone
That he was not the only one to walk a mile or even own
These boots
These Boots
These Boots
