Syl Johnson - Walk a Mile in My Shoes

[Verse 1]
If I could be you, and you could be me
For just one hour
If we could find our way to get inside each other's mind
If you could see you through my eyes
Instead of your ego, mmmhmm
I'll leave you to be surpised to see
That you've been blind, oh yeah

[Chorus]
Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes
Hey, before you critcize, 'buse and accuse
Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes
Hey, yeah

[Verse 2]
This old world you see around you
It's just a reflection, uh huh
This law is common, yeah
You gotta reap just what you sow
So unless if you live the life of totem affection
You better be careful for every stone that you throw
Yet we spend days throwin' stones at one another
'Cause I don't think or wear my hair the same as you, uh huh

[Chorus]
Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes
Oh, before you critcize, 'buse and accuse
Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes
Uh huh
[Verse 3]
I may be common people, but I'm still your brother
And when you strike out or try to hurt me
Don't you know, uh, you hurt yourself, hey y'all
There are peoples on the reservations and in the ghettos
Now dig this
If I only had wings of an angel, don't you know
I'd fly to the top of the mountain and cry, cry

[Outro]
Oh, walk a mile in my shoes
Walk a mile in my shoes
