Mumford And Sons – The Boxer chords ver. 2
I was watching a youtube clip of Marcus Mumford playing this song with a capo on the 5th fret and noticed it was here so I decide to figure it out. Enjoy! Capo on the 5thGI am just a poor boyG/F# EmThough my story's seldom toldDI have squandered my resistanceC GFor a pocket full of mumbles such are promisesG/F# EmAll lies and jestsD CStill a man hears what he wants to hearC/B GAnd disregards the restGWhen I left my home and my familyG/F# EmI was no more than a boyDIn the company of strangersC GIn the quiet of the railway station running scaredG/F# Em D CLaying low, seeking out the poorer quartersGWhere the ragged people goD C Em G/F# GLooking for the places only they would knowChorus:EmLie-la-lieD Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lieEmLie la lieC D GLie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lieGAsking only workman's wagesG/F# EmI come looking for a jobDBut I get no offers,C GJust a come-on from the whores on Seventh AvenueG/F# Em D CI do declare, there were times when I was so lonesomeGI took some comfort thereGThen I'm laying out my winter clothesG/F# EmAnd wishing I was goneDGoing homeC GWhere the New York City winters aren't bleeding meG/F# Em DBleeding me, going homeRepeat the Chorus (He sings it a little bit different but it's difficult to distinguish la's and lie's) During solo play the verse chord progressionGIn the clearing stands a boxerG/F# EmAnd a fighter by his tradeD And he carries the remindersC Of ev'ry glove that layed him downGOr cut him till he cried outG/F# EmIn his anger and his shameD C"I am leaving, I am leaving"GBut the fighter still remainsEmLie-la-lieD Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lieEmLie la lieC D EmLie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lieEmLie-la-lieD Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lieEmLie la lieC D EmLie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lieD Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lieEmLie la lieC D GLie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie
