The Lyrics

Breadbags on our Shoes by Jeffrey Moran
I recall when I was a youth, we were poor and uncouth.
And we only had one pair of shoes.
But we loved one another, and learned from our Mother:
“You have to save those shoes for your little brother.”

Chorus:
Yes, we were poor then, but hard working.
Some people thought we dressed in rags.
But we knew our soles were protected
With those good ol’ white bread bags.

When there was rain or snow, before we could go,
We put bread bags on our feet.
To protect the soles of our shoes, saves us from “wet feet blues”,
We put bread bags on our feet.

Chorus:
Yes, we were poor then, but hard working.
Some people thought we dressed in rags.
But we knew our soles were protected
With those good ol’ white bread bags.

Me and Cousin Fred, we ate a lot of bread,
And Sister Joni ate a loaf or two.
At the grocery store, there was always room for more,
‘Cause we needed to protect our shoes.

Final chorus:
When we arrive at those Pearly Gates, and we get to meet St. Pete.
He’ll be glad to see we wore those bread bags on our feet.
