Diamonds on her shoes
Diamonds on her Shoes... and this is not Paul Simon's song. This isn't even the version I put on my CD Gypsy Soul by Dave Zeman (found only on iTunes).... this is the original way I wrote the song. I had a pair of shoes that had a single silver diamond on it, and it turned into a prostitute story. Lot Lizards were part of a conversation the night or two before and I read this horrific blog about murder. It just sort of cried out for my best Tom Waits material. The cd song is more of a gypsy dance tune, I enjoy both.
The lyrics are posted on the Gypsy Soul blog.
