Lyrics:

The Shoeshine Man


Down on the corner by Joe's cafe's
there's a man named Dan just a shining away
preaching and a speaking and spreading the news
shining up those ol' funky shoes.

Now he'll do more than just shine up your shoes,
He'll polish your soul and take away your blues,
He'll make you whole spread the news he's
the Shoeshineman.

Chorus:
Who made the song for the robin to sing?
Who put the stars in the sky?
Who made the mountains?
Who made the trees?
Who made the river to flow to the sea?
Somebody much bigger than you and me says
the Shoeshine man.

2 Verse:
You put your soul up here
and I'll take it from there,
for just a few little pennies
I'll wipe away your fears.
I'm a voice on the corner,
I'm a voice on the street,
I'm a voice to everyone I meet,
I'm a voice in the wilderness in a jungle of concrete,
I'mthe shoe-shine-man.

Chorus:
Who made the song for the robin to sing?
Who put the stars in the sky?
Who made the mountains?
Who made the trees?
Who made the river to flow to the sea?
Somebody much bigger than you and me,
Says the shoe-shine-man.
Says the brand new shoe-shine
take away your blues kind
shoe-be-doo-n-shoe-shine-man.


3 Verse:
Now he'll light up the road when the way is long
He'll keep you company he'll keep you safe in his arms.
He says now, "Don't set your mind on material things
cause riches fly away on a pair of wings."

Bridge:
Don't forget what the shine man say's
money has wings it just fly's away,
Shine my soul and make me new
polish up these old raggedy shoes.
he'll make you whole come on and spread the news
he's the Shoe-shine-man.

He's the brand new shoe-shine
take away your blues kind,
Shoe-be-do-n-shoe-shine-man.
Now I see sunshine where I was once blind,
Shoe-shine-man.

Old shoes new-shine,
The brand new shoe-kind,
He's the shoe-shine-man
he's the shoe-shine-man
he's the shoe-shine-man
the shoe-be-do-n-shoe-shine-man.
