"Our goal is to have fun writing and playing our tunes." the band.

“Worn out shoes”, is a blues tune written by Bud Elkin about the typical blues many people face when one person in a relationship feels cheated by the other. Many times, it comes through infidelity, and other times it comes from boredom, but generally, it ends up with one or the other person packing up and leaving.
