You know this old world is full of singers 
But just a few are chosen 
To tear your heart out when they sing 
Imagine life without them 
All your, radio heroes 
Like the outlaw that walks through Jesse's dream 

No, there will never be another 
Red-headed stranger 
A Man in Black and Folsom Prison Blues 
The Okie from Muskogee 
Or Hello Darling 
Lord I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes 

[Chorus]
Who's gonna fill their shoes 
Who's gonna stand that tall 
Who's gonna play the Opry 
And the Wabash Cannonball 
Who's gonna give their heart and soul 
To get to me and you 
Lord I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes 

God bless the boys from Memphis 
Blue Suede Shoes and Elvis 
Much too soon he left this world in tears 
They tore up the Fifties 
Old Jerry Lee and Charlie 
And old Go Cat Go still echoes through the years 

You know the heart of country music 
Still beats in Luke the Drifter 
You can tell when hew sings I Saw the Light 
Old Marty, Hank and Lefty 
Why I can feel them right here with me 
On this Silver Eagle rolling through the night 

[Chorus]
Who's gonna fill their shoes 
Who's gonna stand that tall 
Who's gonna play the Opry 
And the Wabash Cannonball 
Who's gonna give their heart and soul 
To get to me and you 
Lord I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes 

Yes I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes?
