Shoeshine Man

Song Author Tom T. Hall Performer: Tom T. Hall Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Well I met a man in Montgomery Alabama
I was [C]waitin' on a bus and he was shinin' [G]shoes

And I heard him say

[D7]I'm a shoeshine [G]man number one in the land
A shoeshine [C]man make you shine where you [G]stand
Leave me a [D7]tip if you can I'm a shoeshine [G]man  


Well I can sing I can dance I can play the harmonica too
I got a [C]brand new thing on the South Side Montgomery [G]Blues
You better [D7]stick around and watch me cause I'm an entertainin' [G]fool

[D7]I'm a shoeshine [G]man number one in the land
A shoeshine [C]man make you shine where you [G]stand
Leave me a [D7]tip if you can I'm a shoeshine [G]man  


Well I learned my trade from that rag-poppin' daddy o'mine
He shined [C]twelve alligators made a hundred dollar bill one [G]time
So when the [D7]meat gets scarce I shine two or three pairs for a [G]dime


[D7]I'm a shoeshine [G]man number one in the land
A shoeshine [C]man make you shine where you [G]stand
Leave me a [D7]tip if you can I'm a shoeshine [G]man  


I had a girl that helped me she had a lotta hoochy coochy ways
She was [C]bumpin' and grindin' paid that girl a dollar a [G]day  
But she was [D7]shy on age and the law come and took her [G]away


[D7]I'm a shoeshine [G]man number one in the land
A shoeshine [C]man make you shine where you [G]stand
Leave me a [D7]tip if you can I'm a shoeshine [G]man  


Well I met a man in Montgomery Alabama
I was waitin' on a bus and he was shinin' shoes

And I heard him say

I'm a shoeshine man number one in the land
A shoeshine man make you shine where you stand
Leave me a tip if you can I'm a shoeshine man

Well I can sing I can dance I can play the harmonica too
I got a brand new thing on the South Side Montgomery Blues
You better stick around and watch me cause I'm an entertainin' fool

I'm a shoeshine man number one in the land
A shoeshine man make you shine where you stand
Leave me a tip if you can I'm a shoeshine man

Well I learned my trade from that rag-poppin' daddy o'mine
He shined twelve alligators made a hundred dollar bill one time
So when the meat gets scarce I shine two or three pairs for a dime

I'm a shoeshine man number one in the land
A shoeshine man make you shine where you stand
Leave me a tip if you can I'm a shoeshine man

I had a girl that helped me she had a lotta hoochy coochy ways
She was bumpin' and grindin' paid that girl a dollar a day
But she was shy on age and the law come and took her away

I'm a shoeshine man number one in the land
A shoeshine man make you shine where you stand
Leave me a tip if you can I'm a shoeshine man
