    Slippers with Wings (chords) Kevin Collins

    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:
