G, D, Em7, G, Am7, G/B, C, D7sus

Verse 1
G              G             Em7              G/D           
It was almost Christmas time, there I stood in another line 
C                      Dsus      D   Am7                  Dsus    D          
Tryin' to buy that last gift or two, not really in the Christmas mood
G                     G            Em7                  G/D
Standin' right in front of me, was a little boy waiting anxiously
C                Dsus         D   Am7                 Dsus  D          G
Pacin' round like little boys do, and in his hands he held a pair of shoes
         Em7                  G           Em7             Dsus  D
And his clothes were worn and old, he was dirty from head to toe
    Am7                G/B           G/C                   Dsus        D
But when it came his time to pay, I couldn't believe what I heard him say

Chorus
            A            E         F#m          E
Sir I wanna buy these shoes for my mama please
  D(add2)                    E                  A      F#m
Its Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
E          A        E                   F#m 
Could you hurry sir? Daddy says there's not much time
A     D(add2)                 E 
You see, she's been sick for quite a while 
 D(add2)                         E
And I know these shoes will make her smile
 D(add2)                Esus   E    Bm7   A     D   E7     A
And I want her to look beautiful, if mama meets Jesus tonight

Asus2, F#m, Dsus2

Verse 2
             A                     E
They counted pennies for what seemed like years
       F#m                         A
Then the cashier said son there's not enough here
D(add2)                  Esus    E  Bm7                   Esus       E
He searched his pockets frantically, then he turned and he looked at me
       A                       E                  F#m
He said, momma made Christmas good at our house, though
                     A                    D            Esus    E
Most years she just did without, tell me sir, what am I gonna do
   Bm7               Esus    E                A
Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes
     F#m             A   C#m     F#m            Esus
So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out
         Bm7                  C#m7                    
And I'll never forget the look on his face when he said
A                 Esus    E
Momma's gonna look so great

You see, she's been sick for quite a while 
 E                         F#
And I know these shoes will make her smile

And I want her to look beautiful, if mama meets Jesus tonight

I knew I caught a glimpse of heavens love as he thanked me and ran out
             A                  E              F#
I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me 
     C#m               F#
what Christmas is all about
