  • A cup of coffee from a waitress I ain't ever met
    She asked, "Are you just passing through?"
    I smiled and said, "I don't know yet"
    I walked around the town square
    Down the street to where
    I met the preacher and the old courthouse band
    Yeah, nothing helps you start again like

    Old boots, new dirt, no reminders
    I've got a feeling this town will get me over her
    You've been through what I've been through man
    Nothing feels better than old boots, new dirt

    There's a thousand faces, I ain't seen before
    The only history that I can see is from a civil war
    It's good for me to look around
    And go down roads she ain't been down
    No memories of our used to be's, set me free

    Old boots, new dirt, no reminders
    I've got a feeling this town will get me over her
    You've been through what I've been through man
    Nothing feels better than old boots, new dirt

    Old boots, new dirt, one step closer
    Yeah, I think I'm gonna like it here, yeah

    You've been through what I've been through man
    Nothing feels better than
    Nothing else is gonna feel like old boots, new dirt
    Old boots and new dirt
    Ooh, old boots and new dirt Writer/s: LEE MILLER, NEIL THRASHER, TOM C. SHAPIRO
