These shabby shoes I'm wearin' all the time
Is full of holes and nails
And brother if I stepped on a worn out dime
I bet a nickel I could tell you if it was heads or tails

from Hank Williams – I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Those shoes are in such bad condition, they’ve made the man used to feeling everything but them, and as such, he could tell you which way a coin faced if he stepped on one.
