George Jones - Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes lyrics

Written by T. Seals and M.D. Barnes

You know this old world is full of singers

But just a few are chosen

To tear your heart out when they sing

Imagine life without them

All your, radio heros

Like the outlaw that walks through Jesse's dream

No, there will never be another

Red-headed stranger

A Man in Black and Folsom Prison Blues

The Okie from Muskogee

Or Hello Darling

Lord I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes


Who's gonna fill their shoes

Who's gonna stand that tall

Who's gonna play the Opry

And the Wabash Cannonball

Who's gonna give their heart and soul

To get to me and you

Lord I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes

God bless the boys from Memphis

Blue Suede Shoes and Elvis

Much too soon he left this world in tears

They tore up the Fifties

Old Jerry Lee and Charlie

And old Go Cat Go still echoes through the years

You know the heart of country music

Still beats in Luke the Drifer

You can tell when hew sings I Saw the Light

Old Marty, Hank and Lefty

Why I can feel them right here with me

On this Silver Eagle rolling through the night

(Repeat chorus)
