A Pair Of Muddy Sneakers

A Pair Of Muddy Sneakers


A pair of muddy sneakers left lying by the door,

tell the tale of a daring journey or an ancient medieval war.

Perhaps a brave explorer crossed the river to Timbuktu,

or was forced to hide in a swamp while a band of Apaches rode through.

Perhaps the top law man in Texas had to stand ankle-deep in wet sand,

while he watered his gleaming stallion on the banks of the Rio Grande...

More likely my brave little hero played in sprinklers along the way

but he'd never admit that to mother... And I'd have it no other way.

Trust with dirt on his face,

Beauty with a cut on his finger,

Wisdom with bubble gum in his hair,

And the hope of the future

With a frog in his pocket.
