Shoes Were New as stated at live performances.

INTRO:
E


VERSE:

E                          A
When these shoes were new it was "how do you do"
       E                       B
It was whiskey and telling our tales
         E                        A
And when my shirt was clean I was there to be seen
      E                             B
I had clean eyes and my smile never failed


CHORUS:

C#m       G#m             A          E
All of my brothers that I met on the way
C#m                   G#m
They were drinking by night
A                     B
They were drinking by day
   A             E
Ah restore to my eyes
          A            E
What was clear and was bright
E                     B        A
And honey take me out drinking tonight
      E           A        E
Honey take me out drinking tonight


VERSE:

E                          A
Bluebells and matches and stains on the table
  E                             B
The sweet smell of the luscious Woodbine.
  E                    A
"Ah Mister McEwen you will be my ruin"
E                             B
I say, but I don't really mind


CHORUS

C#m       G#m             A          E
All of my brothers that I met on the way
C#m                   G#m
They were drinking by night
A                     B
They were drinking by day
   A             E
Ah restore to my eyes
          A            E
What was clear and was bright
E                     B        A
And honey take me out drinking tonight
      E           A        E
Honey take me out drinking tonight


VERSE:
             E                              A
Oh I'm still smiling through, though there's stains on my shoes
             E                        B
The right is heavy and the left it is light
             E                     A
And if it's left up to you then I know what you'd do
E                     B        A
Honey take me out drinking tonight
E           A        E
Honey take me out drinking tonight
