Hi! I am new to this board. I've been searching endlessly for lyrics to a song my Mom and Grandmother used to sing to me as a child. Both passed away years ago so they are unable to help.   I recall the melody and some of the lyrics, but not all of them! Here are the lyrics I can remember. I've included question marks in place of forgotten words.

"Two little blue little shoes
Two little feet where are they
Gone with the potter, the ? the ?
Where baby soon left them one day
Give them to Momma, my darling
? [I can't recall this line at all!]
We'll tie them together
With two bits of leather
Two little blue little shoes."

I plan to include the lyrics in my daughter's scrapbook with pictures of her blue shoes.

Hi, - I don't have time to transcribe it just now, but you'll find sheet music here (click) at the Lester Levy Sheet Music Collection.
This Google Search (click) will help you find sheet music.

Two Little Blue Little Shoes
(Words by M.E. Rourke. Music by L. Peasley)

A trunk standing open and near it a child,
Enchanted by what meets its sight.
The contents around her disorderly piled,
Each object a source of delight.
Then mother appearing and standing behind,
Sheds tears as she silently views,
Lying there on the carpet her baby's last find,
Two little blue little shoes.
    Chorus:
    Two little blue little shoes,
    Two little feet, where are they?
    Gone with the patter, the laughter and chatter,
    Of baby who left her one day.
    Give them to mother, my darling,
    Relics too sacred to lose.
    Tie them together, those two bits of leather,
    Two little blue little shoes.

My darling, those two little relics of blue,
Belonged to your sister Irene
Who's gone to a land where a little blue shoe
Is something that never is seen.
We'll hide them away; Papa soon will be here;
Quick! Quick! We have no time to lose!
They bring back the memories of so much that's dear,
Two little blue little shoes.
