My Old Walking Shoes


You love the broad straight highway…

I love the narrow, winding lane

You go your way… I’ll go my way,

Through sun and wind and rain,

I’ve no desire to be a part

Of your vast hurrying throng…

Just give me my

‘My Old Walking Shoes’

And let me tramp along…


For how I love those little lanes

Where no cars go roaring by

With a winding road before me

And over me blue sky

Wild apple trees in blossom

Are just as pink and white

As the white clouds up above me

And the pink clouds crossing night


You can’t hear the wren sing,

Or take the picture of a flower

Roaring down your asphalt trail

At seventy miles an hour…

So you can have your highways,

And your big cars if you choose,

Just give me my little byways

And ‘My Old Walking Shoes’
