Becky Hobbs – “The Boots I Came To Town In”

THE BOOTS I CAME TO TOWN IN Becky Hobbs

B E F#
I remember when I saw them I was just seven-teen
E F#
The finest work of leather I’d ever seen
B E F#
I laid down my last dollar wore ‘em out the door with pride
E B F# B
They were the boots I came to town in every Friday night
B E F#
Through swinging doors on saw dust floors They kicked their heels up high
E F#
>From Tulsa down to Baton Rouge to Hollywood and vine
B E F#
We chased our dream sometimes it seemed the climb was all up hill
E B F# B
But the boots I came to town in were never standing still
E B
The boots I came to town in Once were shiny new
B F#
Now these old soles have got some holes From all that they’ve been through
B E B
They take me where I am going They know where I’ve been
E B F# B
The boots I came to town in Re-mind me who I am

B E F#
They drove that hammer down to Music City U S A
E F#
They held up my shaking legs on the opry stage
B E F#
In looking back I’m proud to say Through all the ups and downs
E B F# B
The boots I came to town in al-ways foot their ground

G#m D#m
Now I dreamed about this special night And man there’s quite a crowd
G#m E F#
If they call my name I’ll be walking proud

B E F#
My head’s up in the clouds but I am on solid ground
E B F# B
Cause the boots I came to town in are under-neath this sequined gown.

E B
The boots I came to town in Once were shiny new
B F#
Now these old soles have got some holes From all that they’ve been through
B E B
They take me where I am going They know where I’ve been
E B F# B
The boots I came to town in Re-mind me who I am
E B F# B
The boots I came to town in Will take me home again
