Hank Williams Little Paper Boy Lyrics

Last updated: 02/25/2008 10:00:00 AM

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

Please buy a paper from me,
so I can get me something to eat
My clothes are ragged,
No shoes on my feet,
Said the little paper boy,
There on the street

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

So please buy a paper from me,
so I can get me something to eat
My clothes are ragged,
No shoes on my feet,
Said the little paper boy,
There on the street

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

No one was there, his body to claim
There he was lying but he felt no pain
Now he has gone up to heaven we know
The little paper boy that died in the snow

There ya have it,friends
