  In worn out shoes

 With silver hair and ragged shirt baggy pants

Bb        Am
 He would jump so high
Aadd9 A     Dm  F
Jump  so hi-igh
G                C             Dm C7
  Then he lightly  touched down

 Told me of the time
C               Dm             C   Dm C        
 He worked with, with minstrel shows
Bb                C            Dm C7  
 Travelling troughout the south
F                  C
He spoke with tears for fifteen years

How his how his dog and he
Bb          C
 They would travel about
Bb       Am             A Aadd9 A 
 But his dog up and died
Dm  C  G
       Got up and died
 After twenty years he still grieves

He said 

F           C  Dm                    C    Dm C
I dance now at every chance in honky tonks
Bb      C              Dm C7
 For my drinks and tips
F                  C    Dm                         C   Dm C
 But most the time I, I spend behind these country bars
Bb           C        
 You see son I,I drink a bit

 Oh Lord, when he shook his head
F                                                  A
 I can swear I heard somebody saying please, please
