Walk a Mile in My Shoes




Joe South escreveu Walk a Mile in My Shoes em 1969 e gravou-a mais para o final desse ano. A sua gravação (Capitol 2704) chegou ao 12º lugar na tabela Hot 100 da Billboard, e ao 3º lugar na tabela Easy-Listening no início de 1970. No final de 1970, Willie Hightower lançou uma versão de Walk a Mile in My Shoes (Fame 1465) que foi um êxito moderado de rhythm & blues.


Enquanto a versão de Joe South andava nas tabelas, Elvis começou a incorporar Walk a Mile in My Shows nas suas apresentações ao vivo. A RCA gravou o seu concerto de 18 de Fevereiro de 1970, no International Hotel, em Las Vegas.



If I could be you, if you could be me f
or 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

1. Walk a mile in my shoes
Just walk a mile in my shoes
Yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse
Just walk a mile in my shoes

Now if we spend the day throwin' stones at one another
'Cause I don't think, 'cause I don't think or wear my hair the same way you do
Well, I may be common people but I'm your brother
And when you strike out to try to hurt me, it's hurtin' you, Lord have mercy

1. (repete)

Now there are people on reservations and out in the ghetto
And brother there, before the grace of God go you and I
If I only had the wings of a little angel

Don't you know I'd fly to the top of a mountain and then I'd cry, cry, cry


1. (repete)
