Little Paper Boy    Key: C

(C)Out on the corner (G7)standin' so bold
Stood a little paper boy so hungry and (C)cold
And as the crowd came (G7)passin' by
These words he said with tears in his (C)eyes

"Please buy a (G7)paper from me
So I can get me somethin' to (C)eat
My clothes are ragged, no (G7)shoes on my feet"
Said the little paper boy, there on the (C)street

"Out in this cold wide (G7)world all alone
I have no place on this earth to call (C)home
I haven't had the chance that (G7)other kids had
I have no mother, nor even a (C)dad

So please buy a (G7)paper from me
So I can get me somethin' to (C)eat
My clothes are ragged, no (G7)shoes on my feet "
Said the little paper boy, there on the (C)street

Early next mornin' as the (G7)crowd passed by
The little boy was gone and they wondered (C)why
They started searchin' and (G7)then found him dead
He died with the papers under his (C)head

No one was there his (G7)body to claim
There he was lying but he felt no (C)pain
Now he has gone up to (G7)Heaven we know
The little paper boy who died in the (C)snow

--"There ya have it friends"
