Verse 2: Every holiday season as he traveled hed tell about his Christmas dance partner that he never knew well Hed share his favorite story with the locals he met He was called the Christmas story tellin traveling man By age 53 he had done settled down All the neighborhood kids liked to gather around Just to listen to his stories about his life on the road All he had now were these children he told And every Christmas eve they showed up before dark Hed tell them all the story but they knew it by heart They could quote it word for word, he always told it the same It was his favorite Christmas story called the girl with no name Chorus 2 Verse 3: Twenty years later as he took his last breath It was on a cold Christmas morning on a hospital bed The children were grown, he had nobody left Except the little old nurse who was holding his hand He said Maam can you share a little holiday cheer A simple Christmas story was all he wanted to hear But his eyes filled with tears at the words that she spoke Because his favorite Christmas story was the one that she told Chorus 3: She said I met him up in Delaware in 1937 Though I never caught his name he was a traveling man December 24th at a quarter till eleven Im so glad he got the courage to ask me to dance.
