(Stand In) Standin' In My Old Shoes
Lyrics
STAND IN
© Fred Israel

pushin somebody else's pen
through thick and thin.
fightin someone else's war,
fightin to win
standin just outside the door
tryin to get in
rock steady tryin to try
nice guy smile
make you wanna cry

(chorus)
i'm a stand in standin in somebody else's shoes
i'm a blues man singin somebody else's blues
i'm a stuntman makin somebody elses's moves
i'm a stand in for myself
while the rest of me is watchin from up on the shelf
I'm a stand in standin in my old shoes

buildin someone else's house
in sleet and rain
bringin on home the bread and butter
that numbs the pain
put me anywhere you want
it's all the same
i'm a standin' playin the part
understudy for a heavy heart

(chorus)
I'm a stand in standin in somebody else's shoes
I'm a blues man singin somebody elses's blues
At the showdown blowin someone else's cool
i'm a stand in for myself
while the rest of me is watchin from up on the shelf
I'm a stand in standin in my old shoes

(bridge)
be there for anyone else
be there...speak for yourself
I can be there on demand
be there when nobody else can

stand it
standin in somebody else's shoes....
(chorus)
I'm a standin'......I'm a standin'.......I'm a standin'
