One Shoe

I crossed the ocean to this land
Carrying eyes just like a man
So alone, holding on to my mother’s hand

But I held a weapon at my side
It held a promise and my pride
It wasn’t much, just enough to help me make my stand

I knew too well what I couldn’t tell I’d have to show
So it became the only name I’d come to know

See, what you carry in your bag
Could be so much more than others have
Even if it’s just one shoe
No, you may not have a lot,
So you better give what ya got
You only need one shoe

Instrumental

You know damn well, what you can’t tell you’re gonna have to show
So if you wanna stay in this game you’re gonna need to know

Whatever you carry in your bag
Could be so much more than others have
Even if it’s just one shoe
No, you may not have a lot,
So you better give what ya got
You only need one shoe
