Song Description

A man is reminded of his younger days when he thinks about putting on his old blue shoes and dancing the night away!

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song for Abraham Gross (The Dancing Machine) from Madison, Wisconsin. Abe is in his 80's now and still dances with more beautiful women than anyone I know!

These old blue shoes
I can't throw them away
They remind me of the streets
And the roads and the alley ways.

These old blue shoes
They made my hall of fame
One of life's little treasures
A keeper of the flame.

These old blue shoes
If they could what would they say?
Once in a blue moon I put them on
And dream about yesterday.

These old shoes weren't always blue
They walked in the halls of kings
They new all the steps
To all the dances of the day
They made it to the top
Kept going when the parties wouldn't stop.

These old blue shoes
You can bury me in them one day
They ain't worth a dime
To anyone else, anyway.

These old blue shoes.
These old blue shoes!
