AlabamaChristmas Shoes

It was almost Christmas time There I stood in another line Tryin to buy that last gift or two Not really in the Christmas mood Standin right in front of me Was a little boy waiting anxiously Pacing round like little boys do And in his hands he held a pair of shoes And his clothes were worn and old He was dirty from head to toe And when it came his time to pay I couldn't believe what I heard him say Sir, I wanna buy these shoes For my mama, please Its Christmas eve and these shoes are just her size Could you hurry, sir? Daddy says theres not much time You see, shes been sick for quite a while And I, know these shoes will make her smile And I, want her to look beautiful If mama meets Jesus tonight He counted pennies for what seemed like years And the, cashier said Son, theres not enough here. He searched his pockets franticly Then he turned and he looked at me He said Mama made Christmas good at our house Most years she just did without Tell me, sir, what am I gonna do Somehow I've gotta buy her these Christmas shoes So I laid the money down I just had to help him out And Ill never forget the look on his face When he said Mamas gonna look so great Sir, I wanna buy these shoes For my mama, please Its Christmas eve and these shoes are just her size Could you hurry, sir? Daddy says theres not much time You see, shes been sick for quite a while And I, know these shoes will make her smile And I, want her to look beautiful If mama meets Jesus tonight I knew I caught a glimpse of heaven love As he thanked me and ran out I knew that god had sent that little boy to remind me What Christmas is all about Sir, I wanna buy these shoes For my mama, please Its Christmas eve and these shoes are just her size Could you hurry, sir? Daddy says theres not much time You see, shes been sick for quite a while And I, know these shoes will make her smile And I, want her to look beautiful If mama meets Jesus tonight I want her to look beautiful If mama meets Jesus tonight
