Pretty Paper Lyrics

Artist: Roy Orbison

Pretty Paper

Artist: Roy Orbison (peak Billboard position # 15 in 1963)
Words and Music by Willie Nelson


(The pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue)

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write "I love you"
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

Crowded street, busy feet hustle by him
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk
Hoping that you won't pass him by

Should you stop?, better not, much too busy
You're in a hurry, my how time does fly
In the distance the ringing of laughter
And in the midst of the laughter he cries

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue
Wrap your presents to your darling from you
Pretty pencils to write "I love you"
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue

I noticed on other sites it is written that Roy Orbison was the lyricist and the song writer. This site says words and music by Willie Nelson. I know that Roy originally released this song, but I have also heard Willie sing it many times. It would be nice to know which information is correct.
