Eddy Arnold - "Charlie's Shoes" lyrics

(Roy Baham)

I'd like to be in Charlie's shoes
That's what I always said
'Cause he had you and everything

Tied with a golden thread.
Then Charlie left and went away
And when I got the news
Around in Charlie's shoes.
It wasn't long till I was walking

Now, I'm wearing out
The shoes that Charlie wore
Walking back and forth

I've got for company
Across the floor.
The troubles that drove him away
Are killing me.
These nights in Charlie's shoes

The greener grass that turned my head

--- Instrumental ---
'Cause every little dream I build
So swiftly did turn brown
She's always tearing down.
I never knew that Charlie's shoes

Of disappointing sorrows
Could have so many tacks
And I wish he had 'em back.

'Cause I'm wearing out...
