“I like to think of my body as a pair of old shoes. Not the prettiest, a little bit scuffed: a little marked, worn and imperfect. But it has carried me for 18 years, and my, have we walked some beautiful miles.”
If I could be you, if you could be me For just one hour, if we could find a way To get inside each other’s mind If you could see you through my eyes Instead your own ego I believe you’d be I believe you’d be surprised to see That you’ve been blind
Walk a mile in my shoes just walk a mile in my shoes Before you abuse, criticize and accuse Then walk a mile in my shoes
Huge thanks to Jackiej61too on Youtube for posting this 1970 recording with the detailed notes, lyrics and ‘Men With Broken Hearts’ poem pre-amble. Wonderful archive material that makes the song even more potent.
