1855 a long time ago 
  A                     D 
a little boy stands wai ting all alone 
                                 G 
by the train tracks outside the railroad depot 
    A                    D 
and nobody knew what his name was 

                                 G 
well he climbed up inside of the very next train 
        A                         D 
and the people asked him, ?lonely boy what?s your name?? 
                                  G 
but he was too sick to talk so he could not explain 
   A                    D 
so nobody knew what his name was 

                                      G 
well all the people cared for him and stayed by his side 
        A                              D 
and the boys health grew weaker as the hours passed by 
                                      G 
and in his seat on that train car the little boy died 
    A                    D 
and nobody knew what his name was 

                      G 
in South Carolina the train stops still 
         A               D 
and they carried him off in Graniteville 
                                 G 
they made a grave and buried him up on the hill 
      A                    D 
still nobody knew what his name was 

D G A D D G A D 

        D                              G 
to this day his grave?s kept clean and covered with toys 
     A                          D 
with hopes that he?ll have some thing to enjoy 
                                     G                        A                    D 
and his headstone still simple reads ?The Little Boy??cause nobody knew what his name was 

     D                               G 
well some nights at midnight a light shines on his grave 
   A                 D 
or so I've heard the townspeople say 
         D                         G 
and some say they?ve even seen him come out to play 
          A                     D 
but still nobody knows what his name was
