[Verse 1]
G
It was almost Christmas time,
D
There I stood in another line
C
Trying to buy the last gift or two,
D
Not really in the Christmas mood.
G
Standing right in front of me
D
Was a little boy waiting anxiously,
C
Pacing round like little boys do,
D
And in his hands, were a pair of shoes.
G                          G/F#
And his clothes were worn and old.
Em                        D
He was dirty from head to toe,
C                            D
And when it came his time to pay,
C                                   D
I couldn't believe what I heard him say.

[Chorus]
A                       E            F#m    E
Sir, I wanna buy these shoes for my momma please.
D                             E                  A
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size.
A                 E
Could you hurry, Sir?
F#m                          E
Daddy says there's not much time.
D                             E
You see she's been sick for quite a while;
D                             E
And I, know these shoes will make her smile.
D                                  E
And I, want her look beautiful if Momma meets Jesus tonight.

[Interlude]

[Verse 2]
G
He counted pennies for what seemed like years
D
Then the cashier said Son there's not enough here.
C
He searched his pockets so frantically
D
Then he turned and he looked at me.
G
He said Momma made Christmas good... At our house
D
Though most years she just did without.
C
Tell me, Sir, what am I gonna do?
D
Somehow I've got to buy these Christmas shoes!
G                    G/F#
So I laid the money down;
Em                      D
I just had to help him out.
C                                  D
I'll never forget the look on his face
C                                  D
When he said Mommas gonna look so great!

[Chorus]
A                       E            F#m    E
Sir, I wanna buy these shoes for my momma please.
D                             E                  A
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size.
A                 E
Could you hurry, Sir?
F#m                          E
Daddy says there's not much time.
D                             E
You see she's been sick for quite a while;
D                             E
And I, know these shoes will make her smile.
D                                  E
And I, want her look beautiful if Momma meets Jesus tonight.

[Verse 3]
E                               B
I knew that I got a glimpse of heavens love
        C#m                E
As he thanked me and ran out.
E                                 B
I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me
             C#m               E
Just what Christmas is all about.
E                      B
I got a glimpse of heavens love
         C#m              E
As he thanked me and ran out.
E                               B
I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me
 C#m                    E
Just what Christmas is all about.
