Intro: G, G/F, Em, Em7, C, D

(G) It was almost (G/F) Christmas time, 
(Em) There I stood in (Em7) another line,
(C) Trying to buy that last (D) Gift or two, 
(Am7) Not really in the (D) Christmas mood.

(G) Standing right (G/F) in front of me, 
(Em) a little boy waiting (Em7) anxiously, 
(C) pacing round Like (D) little boys do, 
(Am7) and in his hands he (D) held a pair of (C) shoes.

And his (Em) clothes were old and (D) worn, 
He was (Em) dirty from head to (D) toe 
(C) and when it came his (D) time to pay, 
(Am7) I couldn't believe what I (D) heard him say.

Chorus:
Sir, I want to (A) buy these (E) shoes, 
for my (F#m) momma (F#m/E) please, 
it's (D) Christmas eve and these (E)shoes are just her (A) size.
Could your hurry (E) please, 
Daddy says theres (F#m) not much (F#m/E) time, 
you see (D) shes been sick for (E) quite awhile 
and I (D) know these shoes will (E) make her smile 
and I (D) want her to look (E) beautiful 
if (Bm7) momma meets (E7) Jesus (A) tonight (Bm7-E7)

(A) They counted pennies for what (A/G) seemed like years, 
(F#M) the cashier said son theres (F#m/E) not enough here, 
(D) he searched his pockets (E) frantically, 
(D) then he turned and (E) looked at me.

He said,(A) Momma made Christmas (A/G) good at our house,
(F#m) most years she just (F#m/E) did without, 
(D) tell me Sir what am I (E) gonna do 
some (D) how I've  got to (E) buy her these Christmas (A) shoes.

(F#m) So I laid the money (E) down, 
I just (F#m) had to help him (E) out, 
and I'll (D) never forget the (E) look on his face 
when he said (D) mommas gonna look so great.

(Chorus)

I (Bm7) knew I'd caught a glimpse of (A)heaven's love 
as (Bm7) thanked me (E) and ran (A) out 
I knew that (G) God had sent that (D) little boy to (E) remind me, 
What (Bm7) Christmas is all (E7) about.

(Chorus)

From the second chorus to the end of the song, the song changes keys so that it's one whole step up. Just thought everyone should know! =^w^=
