These Boots are Made for Standing

These Boots are Made for Standing

I’ve got on my best Nudie suit
The one you liked me to wear
And I’ve got my old Thunderbird
To take me from here to there

I’m still wearing the same old boots
You gave me for my birthday
But the soles are almost worn out
So it’s hard to walk away

Chorus:
These boots are made for standing
And that’s just what I’m gonna do
I’m gonna stand right here
And tell myself
That I’ll get over losing you

I once dreamed of our wedding day
You were wearing calico
Now that dress hangs in my closet
Just like some faded old ghost

And you know I’m scared of the dark
And these voices in my head
That keep telling me to move on
I’d rather stay here instead

Chorus:
These boots are made for standing
And that’s just what I’m gonna do
I’m gonna stand right here
And tell myself
That I’ll get over losing you

But one day I’ll climb in that bird
To go look for what I lost
Close my eyes and whisper your name
And say it’s my turn to cross

Bridge:
There’s not a highway in this world
That can take me where I need to be
There’s an angel on my shoulder
I know she’ll take care of me

Chorus:
These boots are made for standing
And that’s just what I’m gonna do
I’m gonna stand right here
And tell myself
That I’ll get over losing you
