Intro: Bb, Eb

Verse 1
Bb    
Woke up cold one tuesday,
Db                     Ab
i'm looking tired and feeling quite sick, 
Bb                                             Db          F       
i felt like there was something missing in my day to day life, 
     Bb
so i quickly opened the wardrobe, 
Db                           Ab
pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean, 
Bb
topped it off with a pair of old shoes, 
          Db                 F      
that were ripped around the seams,
              Eb 
and i thought these shoes just don't suit me. 

Chorus:
Bb               F
Hey, I put some new shoes on, 
    Eb
and suddenly everything is right,
        Bb               F                 
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on 
    Eb    
and everybody's smiling, its so inviting, 
    Bb                   F
Oh, short on money, but long on time,
Eb     
slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
    Bb 
and i'm running late,
           F 
and i dont need an excuse,
           Eb     
'cause i'm wearing my brand new shoes.
 
Verse 2
Bb
Woke up late one thursday,
Db                       Ab
i'm seeing stars as i'm rubbing my eyes, 
      Bb
and i felt like there were two days missing, 
     Db              F
as i focused on the time,
      Bb 
and i made my way to the kitchen,
Db                          Ab 
but i had to stop from the shock of what i found,
Bb                             Db                 F 
a room full of all my friends dancing round and round,
              Eb     
and i thought hello new shoes, byebye blues. 

Chorus:
Bb               F
Hey, I put some new shoes on, 
    Eb    
and suddenly everything is right,
        Bb               F                 
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on 
    Eb    
and everybody's smiling, its so inviting, 
    Bb                   F
Oh, short on money, but long on time,
Eb     
slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
    Bb 
and i'm running late,
           F 
and i dont need an excuse,
           Eb     
'cause i'm wearing my brand new shoes.

Breakdown:
Bb                                        Db    
Take me wondering through these streets, 
Bb                                    Db    
where bright lights and angels meet, 
Bb                               Db    
stone to stone they take me on,  
   Eb    
im walking to the break of dawn. - x2 -
