I guess you didn't hear me
When I told you for the first time
Well don't you worry 
It won't be the last
All I need a floorboard 
An a wooden shoe
Step aside an let my lady through 

Hey foot, straw foot
Low we lay 'em down
Hey foot, straw foot
Up an back around 

See the high priest 
He took my place 
When the judge looks to me
He saw a son's face
Not gonna join you in
Your tower of babble, boy
 Tired of that talkin'
I'm sick of that noise 

Hey foot, straw foot
Low we lay 'em down
Hey foot, straw foot
Coverin' ground 

I am not alone 
An looks can be deceivin'
When we get down to it
You're talkin' when you
 Should be leavin'
I've been to Nebraska 
It reminded me of Spain 
All the questions loaded
All my answers same

Hey foot, straw foot
Low we lay 'em down
Hay foot, straw foot
Coverin' ground 

Let us not mince our words 
let's say it true this time
I need your forgiveness 
Just like you need mine
Tell me how it is that
You don't want what He's given 
It ain't no sin, son
To be forgiven 

Hey foot, straw foot
Low we lay 'em down
Hey foot, straw foot
All over town
