THREE LITTLE PENNIES

D 	     A        G                   D              G   D A
There was an old blind man stood on the corner downtown
    D          A       G          D          G              D            G         A
He was holding a cup filled up with nothin' from the Christmas shopping crowd
                       G                                A
And though I barely came up to the top of his cane
   G                                               A
I reached up and gave him every cent to my name

            D                A                   G            D
Three little pennies were all that I had
             G              D              G                  A
One that I found and two from my Dad
            D                A                 G              D
Three little pennies not much of a gift
 	         G                   D                A                D
But Dad said that plenty if its all you can give

D                          A                    G          D         G   D A
That evening my Dad told a wonderful story to me
             D               A                 G                  D
about a child in a manger and wiseman who came 
           G                  D                     A
baring gifts on the first Christmas Eve
G                                          A
There was a part that I was sure he made up about a 
 G                      A       
stable boy who couldn't give much

            D                A                   G            D
Three little pennies were all that I had
             G              D              G                  A
One that I found and two from my Dad
            D                A                 G              D
Three little pennies not much of a gift
 	         G                   D                A                D
But Dad said that plenty if its all you can give
 	 
D      A                G                  D             G    D A
Next mornin was Christmas and I had prayed hard for a bike
D         A                    G       D             G              D            A
But all that I found was the tiniest box with three shiny pennies inside
                G                                 A 
But I was so disappointed cause I had been good
       G                                  A
But times have been bad so I understood and Daddy said

 	 D                 A                  G             D
 	 Three little pennies were all that I had
 	 G                       D            G            A
 	 You gave them freely so I gave'm back
             D               A                 G              D
Three little pennies not much of a gift
 	          G             D                           A                     D
Your bike is outside cause you've learned how to give
