The Kingston Trio

C FLet me tell you of a story 'bout a man named Charlie
C G7On a tragic and fateful day.
C FHe put ten cents in his pocket, kissed his wife and family,
C G7 CWent to ride on the M T A.
C FBut will he ever return? No he'll never return,
C G7And his fate is still unlearned.
C FHe may ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston,
C G7 CHe's the man who never returned.
C FCharlie handed in his dime at the Scully Square Station,
C G7And he changed for Jamaica Plain.
C FWhen he got there the conductor told him, "One more nickel!"
C G7 CCharlie couldn't get off of that train.
C FNow all night long Charlie rides through the stations,
C G7Crying, "What will become of me?
C FHow can I afford to see my sister in Chelsey,
C G7 COr my brother in Roxbury?"
C FCharlie's wife goes down to the Scully Square Station,
C G7Every day at a quarter past two.
C FAnd through the open window she hands Charlie his sandwich
C G7 CAs the train goes rumbling through.
C FNow you citizens of Boston, don't you think it's a scandal,
C G7How the people have to pay and pay?
C FFight the fare increase, vote for George O'Brien,
C G7 CGet poor Charlie off the M T A!
