Jimmy Brown The News Boy

Song Author A.P. Carter Performer: Lester Flatt og Earl Scuggs Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I sell the morning paper sir
My name is Jimmy [G7]Brown

Everybody knows I am
The Newsboy of the [C]town


You will hear me yelling Morning Star
As I run along the [G7]street

I have no hat up on my head
No shoes upon my [C]feet


Never mind sir how I look
Don't look at me and [G7]frown

I sell the morning papers sir
My name is Jimmy [C]Brown


I'm awful cold and hungry sir
My clothes are worn and [G7]thin   

I wander about from place to place
My daily bread to [C]win  


My Father died a drunkard sir
I've heard my Mother [G7]say   

And I am helping Mother sir
As I journey on my [C]way  


Mother always tells me sir
I've nothing in this world to [G7]lose   

I'll get a place in Heaven sir
To sell the Gospel [C]News

[C]I sell the morning paper sir
My name is Jimmy [G7]Brown

Everybody knows I am
The Newsboy of the [C]town


You will hear me yelling Morning Star
As I run along the [G7]street

I have no hat up on my head
No shoes upon my [C]feet

I sell the morning paper sir
My name is Jimmy Brown

Everybody knows I am
The Newsboy of the town

You will hear me yelling Morning Star
As I run along the street

I have no hat up on my head
No shoes upon my feet

Never mind sir how I look
Don't look at me and frown

I sell the morning papers sir
My name is Jimmy Brown

I'm awful cold and hungry sir
My clothes are worn and thin

I wander about from place to place
My daily bread to win

My Father died a drunkard sir
I've heard my Mother say

And I am helping Mother sir
As I journey on my way

Mother always tells me sir
I've nothing in this world to lose

I'll get a place in Heaven sir
To sell the Gospel News

I sell the morning paper sir
My name is Jimmy Brown

Everybody knows I am
The Newsboy of the town

You will hear me yelling Morning Star
As I run along the street

I have no hat up on my head
No shoes upon my feet
