    C (x32010@1)         G (320003@1)          DI'd (xx0232@1)shoulder my bag down the Irvine Road
         C (x32010@1)            G (320003@1)    DPast (xx0232@1)the council houses row on row
    G (320003@1)      C (x32010@1)   DWhen (xx0232@1)I was a paper boy
         C (x32010@1)                  GWith (320003@1)the Daily Record and the People's Friend
       C (x32010@1)         G (320003@1)    DI'd (xx0232@1)go down to the sunny side again
C (x32010@1)                        G (320003@1)     DUnder (xx0232@1)the bridge where the railway bends
    C (x32010@1)      D (xx0232@1)   GWhen (320003@1)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
