Lyrics

If I could be you and you could be me for just one hour If we could find a way to get inside each others mind If you could see you through my eyes instead of your ego I believe you'd be surprised to see that you'd been blind Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes Yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse Walk a mile in my shoes Well, your whole world you see around you is just a reflection And the law of common says you're gonna reap just what you sow So unless you've lived a life of total perfection Mm-mm, you'd better be careful of every stone that you should throw Yet we spend the day throwin' stones at one another 'Cause I don't think or wear my hair same way you do Well, I may be common people but I'm your brother And when you strike out and try to hurt me it's a hurtin' you, Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes Yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse Walk a mile in my shoes

There are people on reservations and out in the ghettos And brother, there, but for the grace of God, go you and I If I only had the wings of little angels don'tcha you know I'd fly To the top of the mountain and then I'd cry? Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes Hey, before you abuse, criticize and accuse Better walk a mile in my shoes Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes Oh, before you abuse, criticize and accuse Walk a mile in my shoes, Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes Hey, before you abuse, criticize and accuse Walk a mile in my shoes
