G6: 320030; Em/B: X22000
C Em/B AmI am just a poor boy though my story’s seldom told
GI have squandered my resistance
G7 G CFor a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises
Am G FAll lies and jests, still a man hears what he wants to hear
C G F Em CAnd disregards the rest hmhmhmhmhm
C Em/B AmWhen I left my home and my family, I was no more than a boy
GIn the company of strangers
G7 G CIn the quiet of a railway station, running scared
Am G FLaying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
CWhere the ragged people go
G F G CLooking for the places only they would know
Am G AmLie la lie, lie la la la la la lie, lie la lie
F G CLie la lie la la la la, lie la la la la lie.
C Em/B AmAsking only workman’s wages I come looking for a job
GBut I get no offers
G7 G CJust a come-on from the whores on Seventh’ Avenue
Am G FI do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
CI took some comfort there
G F Em C G7 G6 CLa la la la la Interlude
Am G AmLie la lie, lie la la la la la lie, lie la lie
F G CLie la lie la la la la, lie la la la la lie.
C Em/B AmThen I’m laying out my winter clothes and wishing I was gone
G G7Going home….. where the New York City winters aren’t
C Ambleeding me
Em Am GLeading me, going home
C Em/B AmIn the clearing stands the boxer and a fighter by his trade
G G7And he carries a reminder of ev’ry glove that laid him down
C AmOr cut him till he cried out in his anger and his shame
G FI am leaving, I am leaving
CBut the fighter still remains
AmLie la lie lie la and so on ……..again if you want
