THE SHOES YOU'RE WEARING        Clint Black

 Intro chords G C G C

G                                     
We've both seen enough of wrong and right 
C                                     G
We  know everything's not black and white
G                                 C   
There's always something in be-tween.  
G 
No  matter how long or well you live
      C                            G       
You  don't get anything you don't give
G                    C     C/c C/b
Still no slate is  clean
Am/a
 For better or worse anybody can
        D
Take a look around and find a better man
Am
Upright no matter how he's faring
C
No matter what kind of shoes he's wearing
G                          C                   G    C
The shoe's he's wearing,  they don't make the  man.
G
So many people out running around
C                                  G 
Handicapped before they hit the ground
G                            C
Thinking there's nowhere to  go
G   
Shouldn't we all be looking for ways
    C                          G
To keep on seeing our better days
G                             C     
We're not chained to what we know
             Am
But if your eyes are open and your mind is free
D
There's no telling what a man can be
Am
Upright no matter how you're faring
C 
No matter what kind of shoes you're wearing
G                           C                    G
The shoe's you're wearing, they don't make the  man.
        Em    D      G            D
But if  you  can't  walk in the  best of times and the worst of times
C
Find your feet still walking the line
D
You'll never carry the load worth bearing
C
No matter what kind of shoes you're wearing
                    G       C                    G      C
The shoes you're wearing,  they don't make the  man.
                    G       C                    G      C
The shoes you're wearing,  they don't make the  man.
G       C                   G  
Shoes-ooos  Don't make the man
G       C                   G  
Shoes-ooos  Won't make the man
