Written by A. P. Carter
Chord-chart by Lynn Lewis
Same chord progression for verse and chorus.
|C / / / |/ / G / |
I sell the morning paper sir, my name is Jimmie Brown,
G / / / |/ / |C / / /
Every-body knows that I'm the newsboy of the town.
|C / / / |/ / G /
You can hear me yelling "Morning Star", up and down the street,
|G / / / |/ / |C / / / |
I've got no hat u-pon my head, no shoes u-pon my feet.
Never mind sir how I look, don't look at me and frown,
I sell the morning paper sir, my name is Jimmie Brown.
I'm awful cold and hungry sir, my clothes are worn and thin,
I wander 'bout from place to place, my daily bread to win.
My father died a drunkard sir, I heard my mother say,
I am helping mother as I journey on my way.
My mother always told me sir, I've nothing in the world to lose,
I'll get a place in heaven to sell the gospel news.
