Dead Man's Shoes kicks in with that distinctive N'Awlins second line groove and never lets up. Julie's violin teases the vocal and the guitar drives the pocket. Lyrically, I can't really say where this one came from. I remember thinking about my father and how I was now walking in the "shoes" he left for me, and it somehow got twisted up into a quirky love song (don't they all?).
