C                   G
Down to the agent's shop I'd go
    C           G            D
I'd shoulder my bag down the Irvine Road
         C              G      D
Past the council houses row on row
    G        C     D
When I was a paper boy
         C                    G
With the Daily Record and the People's Friend
       C           G      D
I'd go down to the sunny side again
C                          G       D
Under the bridge where the railway bends
    C        D     G
When I was a paper boy

And my feet flew in the morning light
Racing the dawn as the sky grew bright
And everything in the world was right
When I was a paper boy
I'd walk the morning and the empty streets
Would ring to the sound of my own two feet
And I'd walk in step to my own heartbeat
When I was a paper boy

As the rain rolled down the back of my neck
I'd deliver the news of death and sex
Rhodesia, Speck and Malcolm X
When I was a paper boy
There's a crow in a treetop way up high
Hung as a warning left to die
And a moaning wind in the morning sky
When I was a paper boy
