Gary I have tried to find these chords on the net but they are unavailable. Could you please chord them for me in your own time. It is not on Youtube. I have the MP3. I have sent you the MP3. Many thanks. Eleanor


Slippers With Wings Sung by Kevin Collins

Susie was three when she first blessed our home
We loved her as much as a child of our own
Her little legs were all twisted and frail
But it was never meant for Susie to be well

In her little bedtime prayer she would say
Lord I know you've been busy today
But if you get some time please pretty please
Could I have some slippers with wings

She loved to watch the kids in the playground nearby
They'd call Susie's name she would wave and say hi
Tiny teardrops would leave the window stained
It was never meant for Susie to complain

She would say to her brown puppy dog
Little Skippy I know it won't be long
Till I run and play tag like my friends
Gods sending me pretty slippers with wings

Susie turned four and her little legs turned weak
Pain took it's tole and the colour left her cheeks
Christmas eve came and we gathered around Susie's bed
And these are the last words she said

Mommy, mommy there's a man dressed in white
Daddy look he is shiny and bright
And he's holding some ribbons and some string
Around a pretty pair of slippers with wings

And if ever I am certain of one certain thing (Slowing)
Susie's wearing golden slippers with wings

Eleanor, I fixed a few words. You'll notice he changes key... just moves up a fret. You can keep it in the basic chords when you do it if you don't want to do C#, etc.

I got a few tears in my eyes from this one. I think my cocker spaniel Molly got a bit choked up too, when he mentioned her "brown puppy dog".

Thankyou Gary. Much appreciated. Yes the lyrics to this song are very sad. I also love the tune. Peter my husband is wondering if that was a salmon in your photo and how heavy. We also go salmon fishing as well but our salmon are smaller. Thanks Eleanor

Eleanor, That is a striped bass that was caught in the Annapolis River in Nova Scotia. It was about 17 pounds (I'm guessing).
I used to do a lot of "Atlantic Salmon" fishing on the Margaree River, which is on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. I would carry an old heavy VHS camera with me just in case I could get some good pictures. A while ago I purchased a program that let me transfer my old VHS tapes to my computer and turn them into digital. From those I put together a couple of videos of fishing on the Margaree.
When you have some free time, and you have nothing better to do (lol), you can check them out at:
