Jimmy Brown The Newsboy
Mac Wiseman
Album: 24 Greatest Hits (2006)

G
I sell the morning paper, sir
                   D
My name is Jimmy Brown, 

Everybody knows I am, 
                    G
The Newsboy of the town.

G
You will hear me yelling "Morning Star", 
                     D
As I run along the street, 

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

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

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

I wander 'bout from place to place, 
                   G
My daily bread to win.

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

I sell the morning papers, sir, 
                  G
My name is Jimmy Brown.

G
I sell the morning papers, sir, 
    C             G
My name is Jimmy Brown.

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

And I am helping Mother, sir, 
                   G
As I journey on my way.

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

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

G
Never mind sir how I look,
                       D       
Don't look at me and frown,
 
I sell the morning papers, sir,
                  G
My name is Jimmy Brown.

G 
I sell the morning papers, sir,
    C             G
My name is Jimmy Brown
