The Lyrics


I rode my mule to the county mall
A place I'd never been at all
And there I saw the darndest things
The lady said "they go on your feet"

Steppin' into Florsheims
Feels like I'm headin' for the big time

I paid her with some chicken eggs
A funny feelin' in my legs
I'd plumb forgot just how to walk
With such a strange gadget on my feet

Steppin' into Florsheims
Feels like I'm sippin' on some moonshine
Steppin' into Florsheims
My head is ringin' like a door chime

I walked on home beside my mule
I passed an old boy from my school
He asked me what my feet were in
Suddenly I began to grin

Steppin' out in Florsheims
Feels like I'm walkin' on some sunshine

I reached the farm and there was Paw
His jaw agape at what he saw
He asked me what the hell I wore
They looked like doodads from a store

Steppin' out in Florsheims
Thought I was headin' for the big time
Steppin' out in Florsheims
Now I was headin' straight for chore time

He tossed a shovel at me then
And pointed to the livestock pen
Look, he said, shovel up that shed
And get them cobwebs out yer head

Steppin' round in Florsheims
I might be steppin' in some cow slime
Steppin' round in Florsheims
I think I'm headin' for a shoeshine

Weighin' heavy on my heart
My fancy shoes, they fell apart
Goats moved in from every side
And they ate that tasty hide

Steppin' outta Florsheims
I wish the Lord'd give me more time
Steppin' outta Florsheims
I guess I'll guzzle me some moonshine

Florsheims, Florsheims
Florsheims, Florsheims

Never owned any Florsheims but remember the stores. Best funky shoes I ever had were platforms in the '70s and suede half-boots in the early '80s!!!

Thanks! There's a line in "Chinatown" where Jack Nicholson says "Damn Florsheim shoes!" My dad used to wear the white ones with the little gold chains.
