[Intro]
G    F       C

[Verse]
 C                                      D
Let me tell you a little story bout the way things used to be
   G                       F      C
My Dad took me to Sydney back in 1943
F                                              C             AM
He said Son you’re not wearing those  they’d call us bush galoots
  G                                         F                 C
If you went out and walked about in those high-heeled riding boots

[Chorus]
    F                                   C
But I stand back and laugh today at the way that times have changed
   F                                      C                G
So many town-folk dressed as if they just stepped off the range
   F                        C                   AM
But that day back in 43 I could not pick and choose
   G                             F                 C
The day me old man made me wear a pair of lace up shoes

[Verse]
     C                               D
We went out  to regal Zonophone on Parramatta road
    G                                 F                    C
We walked along Columbia lane where some famous feet have strode
         F                               C                        AM
But the man in charge was not impressed, Don’t call us we’ll call you
       G                                                F                 C
And to make things worse my feet still hurt from those dammed new lace-up shoes

[Verse]
         C                                 D
And there were soldiers everywhere in town six o’clock was closing time
           G                                  F                 C
And if you didn’t tip everywhere you went the yanks won all the time
       F                                         C                    AM
I was pushed along as I dreamed of home where the skies were clean and blue
     G                                      F                  C
Far away from this rat race in town and big mobs with lace-up shoes

[Chorus]
    F                                    C
But I stand back and laugh today at the way that times have changed
  F                             C                          G
So many town-folk dressed as if they just stepped off the range
  F                        C                  AM
But that day back in 43 I could not pick and choose
   G                          F                   C
The day my old man made me wear a pair of lace-up shoes

[Verse]
   C                                         D
Now as I look back on the singing track since 1943
     G                                      F              C
The harder I worked, you know old mate, the luckier I seemed to be
          F                                    C                AM
But I’ve always sung of the old home run in the best was that I knew
        G                                             F                C         
But I still feel bad when I think of Dad and those dammed new lace-up shoes

[Chorus]
     F                                    C
Yeah I stand back and laugh today at the way that times have changed
   F                                  C                    G
So many town-folk dressed as if they just stepped off the rage
     F                                   C                   AM
I’ve lived my life with few regrets, the same again I’d choose
       G                                           F                 C
And Be flat as a tack in this old felt hat with my pair of Williams shoes.

[Outro]
G     F       C
