Hand Me My Boots

Written By: Ruth Manning

Hand Me My Boots

The word around this town is that you’ve let me down
I’m not so sure that I know what to say
The love you gave to me was for eternity
Now it seems you’ve thrown it all away
I’ve got something that’s more faithful hanging round
So hand me my boots, honey I’m walking out

*I’m walking out that door right now
I’ll find a way to get over you somehow
There was a future in it when we made our vows
But darlin now that future’s headin south
I don’t know what you think you’re all about
Hand me my boots, honey I’m walking out

These boots are beat up footwear I agree
But they sure know better than you how on to treat me
When I need to get around they’ve got me covered
And they ain’t out searchin for another lover
They’re dusty cracked and stained that ain’t no doubt
So hand me my boots honey I’m walkin out

*I’m walking out that door right now
I’ll find a way to get over you somehow
There was a future in it when we made our vows
But honey now that future’s headin south
I don’t know what you think you’re all about
Hand me my boots, honey I’m walking out

Bridge
I know that this is hard to believe
But the soles on these boots will set me free
So you can go ahead boy with all your talking
Cause me and these old boots are gonna start walking

*I’m walking out that door right now
I’ll find a way to get over you somehow
There was a future in it when we made our vows
But honey now that future’s headin south
I don’t know what you think you’re all about
But hand me my boots, honey I’m walking out
