THE CHRISTMAS SHOES Three Of Hearts It was almost Christmas time There I stood in another line Trying to buy that last gift or two Not really in the Christmas mood Standing right in front of me Was a little boy waiting anxiously Pacing around like little boys do And in his hands he held a pair of shoes. And his cloths were worn and old He was dirty from head to toe But when it came his time to pay I couldn't believe what I heard him say. Chorus I want to buy these shoes for my Mama please It's Christmas Eve and These shoes are just her size Could you hurry please Daddy says there's not much time You see she's been sick for quite a while and I know these will make her smile And I want her to look beautiful If Mama meets Jesus tonight. He counted pennies for it seemed like years The cashier said son there's not enough here He searched his pockets franticly Then he turned and looked at me and he said Mama made Christmas good at our house But most years she just did without Tell me what am I gonna do Somehow I gotta buy her these Christmas shoes. So I laid the money down I just had to help him out And I'll never forget the look on his face When he said Mamma's gonna look so great. Chorus I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love As he thanked me and ran out I knew god had sent that boy To remind me what Christmas is all about. I wanna buy these shoes for my Mama please If Mama meets Jesus tonight. (Transcribed by Machiel Bain - October 2002)
