lyrics

If you could walk
in another man's shoes,
Then you can feel his pain, (repeat)
Everybody has suffered,
Everybody feels the shame

If you live.
Inna glasshouse
You'd bet not, bet not throw no stones, (repeat)
Him without the sin Lawd,
I wanna see him stand alone

Walk in the shoes
Of another man
Then you will understand
Shoes of another man
Walk in them and you'll understand


Everybody's tryin,
Everybody's doing the best they can (repeat)
You'll never know sufferin' Lawd
Till you walk in the shoes of another man

Walk in the shoes
Of another man
Then you will understand
Shoes of another man
Walk in them and you'll understand
Open our heart and you will see
That the pains in you and me
It's just the same

I'm talking bout the shoes of another man
walk in them and you'll understand
Shoes of another man
If you walk in them you'll understand
Open our heart and you will see
That the pains in you and me
It's all just the same


If you think you got it hard
Then you need to
Walk in the shoes of another man

By combining "traditional" finger picking and slide guitar with the contemporary feel of urban blues, Brother Yusef gives the past and present equal rights on stage.
A stand-out talent
