How do I copy attribute data to an existing shapefile?

I have an existing table containing attribute data about crosswalks with no geometry.  I also have a polyline layer for crosswalks that I want have the attribute data attached to.  How do I get the data from the .dbf into the empty crosswalk feature class?  Merge doesn't work b/c they're different data types.  I can't do a join b/c there is no spatial reference yet.  I figured once the data was in the shapefile I could use the "replace geometry" tool to draw in the lines depicting crosswalks but I'm not sure if that will work.  Am I going about this all wrong?
