Don't you know that the angels, in some wild and secret heart
Doubt for those who get the wrong things
And those who want to get caught
You don't have to doubt no more
You don't have to count on cryin'
No one can win a heart like yours
But damned if he ain't tryin'

CHORUS
Put on your diamond shoes
Put on your diamond shoes
The ones you talk about
That shine like brand new
The ones you've no place to wear
Sure you'll never use
The ones you look so pretty in
Go put on your diamond shoes

There is no rain comes down, you don't carry in your hand
For whoever gets the wrong things right
Since no one understands
There is no flower I know
Deserving of your hair
But damned if he don't come every night
To try and pin one there

CHORUS
Put on your diamond shoes
Put on your diamond shoes
The ones you talk about
The ones you're scared to use
You don't have to doubt no more
They'll always shine like new
You'll look so pretty walkin' in your
Diamond shoes

Where the road was wet and rough
You kicked and swore them off
Now it's gettin' on time
They were back swingin' at your side

CHORUS
Put on your diamond shoes
Put on your diamond shoes
You'll look so pretty walkin' in your
Diamond shoes
