Quality Shoe (Mark Knopfler) 3:56

LYRICS

You got your toecaps reinforced with steel
Hard-wearing sole and heel
Make those tired feet feel like new
Take your pick, black or Brown
Great for the country or the man in town
You’re gonna need a quality shoe

You don’t want no stand-by pair
‘Cos these’ll take the wear and tear
Made to take good care of you
For that trip by road or rail
For extra grip on those rocky trails
You’re gonna need a quality shoe

Now they maybe ain’t too hot for dancing
But I don’t foresee too much of that
You ain’t exactly gonna be prancing
Around in the moonlight
With a cane and a top hat
If you could use a change of pace
And be excused from the rat race

Just take a look at what’s on view
Lace ’em up, walk around
I guarantee you can’t wear ’em down
You’re gonna need a quality shoe

Now I wish you sunny skies
And happiness wherever you may go
But you got to realise
There’ll be wind, there’ll be rain
And occasional snow
You’re gonna want to smile in them
If you’re gonna walk a mile in them

There’ll be times when you’ll be blue
To laugh at rainy days and then
Make your getaways in them
You’re gonna need a quality shoe

You got your toecaps reinforced with steel
Hard-wearing sole and heel
Make those tired feet feel like new
Take your pick, black or Brown
Great for the country or the man in town
You’re gonna need a quality shoe

Steve Phillips, when rehearsing for the MK and friends 2002 concerts said to MK after listening to Quality Shoe for the first time if it was a homage to king of the road...
You might get lucky, now and then

I like very much the version featuring on the Brokeback mountain soundtrack



it's sung by Teddy Thompson and Rufus Wainwright
