In My Shoes

Written by Kevin Funderburk

VERSE 1
Peek around the corner at the closet in my room
I see my little boy with my best Sunday shoes
I chuckle in the shadow, then I ponder the view
Oh, Lord, keep me close to You

CHORUS 1
‘Cause he’s following in my footsteps, doing everything I do
I know he’s bound to travel down whatever road I choose
So Lord, keep my feet on the path that leads to you (following You)
‘Cause he’ll always be walking in my shoes

VERSE 2
As the years go by, it’s kinda funny at times
That little boy at thirteen, sizin’ up my size nines
He’s got a closet full of tennis shoes, but he’s wearin’ mine
I guess some things never change at times

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Step by step, day by day, we’re all on the same journey
And sometimes we fall down along the way
Oh, but let us not forget that those little ones are watching
To see if we’ll get up to finish the race

CHORUS 1
They’re following in our footsteps, doing everything our do
I know they’re bound to travel down whatever road we choose
So Lord, keep our feet on the path that leads to you (following You)
‘Cause they’ll always be walking in our shoes

TAG
Oh, he’ll always be walking in my shoes
In my shoes
In my shoes
