[Intro]

D  A  D  A 


[Chorus]

       D                        A
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
                                       D
Wrap your present to your darlin' from you
                   D7           G
Pretty pencils to write I love you
               D           A           D
Oh, Oh pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue.


[Verse 1]

        D             A           D
Crowded streets, busy feet hustle by him
                   A            D
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh
                  D7           G
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk
E                              A
Hoping that you won't pass him by.


[Verse 2]

           D             A           D
Should you stop? Better not, much to busy
                      A              D
You'd better hurry, my how time does fly
                        D7         G
And in the distance the ringing of laughter
           D            A           D
And in the midst of the laughter he cries.


[Chorus]

       D                        A
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
                                       D
Wrap your present to your darlin' from you
                  D7           G
Pretty pencils to write I love you
              D             A          D
Oh, Oh pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue.
              D             A          D
Oh, Oh pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue...
