“Red Shoes” Lyrics
(from “Dumplin'” film soundtrack)

I remember as a child
I was absolutely wild
‘Bout some red shoes that my aunt Lucy wore
She would let me stomp around
In those high heels up and down
Round the house and round the wrap around porch

And from that moment on
I’ve had a pair of my own
They make me feel at home and brand new
They build my confidence
As if they’ve been heaven sent
I feel alone, I’m puttin’ on my red shoes

I begged mama, “Pretty please,
From the wishbook order me,
A pair of red shoes for my feet”, so mama did
Through the years I’ve thought about
Aunt Lucy’s love and think of how
Such little things in life can make or break a kid

I believe that every child
Needs to feel a sense of pride
And someone to love and guide and see them through
So many miles I’ve traveled
Many times they’ve come unraveled
On the road both smooth or gravel
But I’ve made it through, ooh

Or walkin’ through New Orleans
Walk the streets of Memphis
Stroll around a block or two
And if God sees fit to hold me
Anyone that’s ever known me
Know I’d walk the ghost streets only
In a pair of red shoes

And if I ever get to heaven
If I ever get to heaven
If I ever get to heaven
And Lord I hope I do
I will walk the streets of glory
I will walk the streets of glory
I will tell my Lucy story
And walk with her in red shoes
