The Shoes My Daddy Wore.
Copyright, 1874, by E. H. Harding.

Just 'fore my daddy died,
He called me to his bed;
I knelt down by his side,
And dis to me he said:
"Come, take dese good old shoes,
I cannot give you more:
I've had dem more dan fifteen years
On dis old Virginia shore."

For dese am de shoes my daddy wore!
Den watch what I does
Wid dese old plantation shoes;
For dese am de shoes my daddy wore!

On every holiday
Dese same old shoes I wear;
And when I dance in dem
I make de white folks stare.
When I have grown quite old,
I'll hang dem on de wall;
And think of happy days dat's gone.
And those happy scenes recall.-Chorus.
