Intro: C Am F G


C I know you got your pride and your prose tucked just like a tommy gun
AmSomewhere in the smoke just in case you needed some
FI heard it's been a ride, rougher than the last one
GOnce you used to say, oh, the harder they come
CBut he, he swears he's praying for a good time
AmAnd he, he said he just doesn't miss her
F GAnd I have heard you never really lose it, do ya? do ya?
CYou took it all gracefully on the chin
AmKnowing that the beatings had to some day end
F GYou found the bandages inside the pen and the stitches on the radio
CBut there was something heavy holding you down
AmAnd there were whispers that were driving you crazy
FAnd now you haunt the heart of this town
GRemember when I knew a boxer, baby
CAnd your tattooed knuckles, oh how they grind down
AmTry to be a man, tough just like your father
FTry to settle down, more like calm down
GRemember them songs and the reasons we were singing for
CBut he said, he just doesn't miss her
AmAnd he, he says it's somewhere in his framework
F GAnd I have heard you never really lose it, do ya? do ya?
CYou took it all gracefully on the chin
AmKnowing that the beatings had to some day end
F GYou found the bandages inside the pen and the stitches on the radio
CBut there was something heavy holding you down
AmAnd there were reasons that were driving you crazy
FUntil you haunt the heart of this town
GRemember when I knew a boxer
Am CAnd you can wait all night long, until it all goes wrong
GAnd you waste away your soul
F GAnd you can wait wait wait
CYou took it all gracefully on the chin
AmKnowing that the beatings had to some day end
F GYou found the bandages inside the pen and the stitches on the radio
CBut there was something heavy holding you down
AmAnd there were whispers that were driving you crazy
FUntil you haunt the heart of this town
GRemember when I knew a boxer, baby
