#1.
A                                                    B
If I could be you, and you could be me, for just one hour.
            D                   E                  A
If we could find, a way to get inside, each others mind.
A                                                      B
If you could see you, through my eyes, instead of your ego..
    D                            E                    A
I believe you'd be, surprised to see, that you'd been blind.

Mmm..mmm.

CHORUS:
A                                          D
Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes..
                 E
yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse,
                  A
walk a mile in my shoes.

#2.
A                                                       B
Well, your whole world, you see around you, is just a reflection.
               D                         E                   A
And the Law of Common, says you're gonna reap, just what you sow.
A                                         B
So, unless, you've lived a life, of total perfection..
                       D                 E                      A
mm-mm, you'd better be careful, of every stone, that you should throw.

#3.
A                                             B
Yet, we spend the day, throwing stones at one another..
              D                 E                  A
cause I don't think, or wear my hair, same way you do.
A                                           B
Well, I may be, common people, but I'm your brother.
             D                      E                       A
And when you strike out, and try to hurt me, it's a hurtin' you.
A
Lord have mercy.

CHORUS:
A                                          D
Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes..
                 E
yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse,
                  A
walk a mile in my shoes.

#4.
A                                                 B
There are people, on reservations, and out in the ghettos..
             D                           E               A
and brother, there, but for the grace of God, go you and I.
A                                  B                             D
If I only, had the wings of little Angels, don'tcha you know I'd fly,
                  E                      A
to the top of the mountain, and then I'd cry.

CHORUS:
A                                          D
Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes..
                 E
yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse,
                  A
walk a mile in my shoes.

CHORUS:
A                                          D
Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes..
                 E
yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse,
                  A
walk a mile in my shoes.

OUTRO:
A                                          D
Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes..
                 E
yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse,
                  A
walk a mile in my shoes.
