I'll Never Wear A Pair Of Shoes

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

June Carter:
You can take away my banjo and my guitar
You can stop me making mash for moonshine brews
I’ll give up my mountain planters and the whole world can go answer
But I swear I’ll never wear a pair of shoes

You may try to force a man to study writing
You may even learn him how to read the news
But no beating or no clubbing will make me a mite less stubborn
Mister, never will I wear a pair of shoes

June: No sir
Carter Sisters and Chester Atkins: No sir
June: No sir
Carter Sisters and Chester: No sir
All: I swear I’ll never wear a pair of shoes

June:
You can have the law on me when I start feuding
You can wake me up when I would rather snooze
You can hang my ancient pappy that won’t make me too unhappy
But I swear I’ll never wear a pair of shoes

If I must backwash I’ll even start bathing
Take that rifle and corncob pipe I’d hate to lose
You can rile me, you can vex me, you can hex me, double hex me
But I swear I’ll never wear a pair of shoes

June: No sir
Carter Sisters and Chester Atkins: No sir
June: No sir
Carter Sisters and Chester: No sir
All: I swear I’ll never wear a pair of shoes

June: No, I swear I’ll never wear a pair of shoes
