Intro: B B Abm I am just a poor boy, though my story is seldom told. Gb I have squandered my resistance, Gb7 Gb B For a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises. Abm All lies and jest; Gb E B Gb Gb7 Gb B Still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest. B Abm When I left my home and my family I was no more than a boy, Gb In the company of strangers, Gb7 Gb B In the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared. Abm Gb E Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters, B Where the ragged people go. Gb E Gb Gb7 B Lookin' for the places, only they would know. Abm Lie-la-lie Ebm Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie Abm Lie la lie Gb B Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie B Abm Asking only workman's wages I come lookin' for a job, Gb But I get no offers, Gb7 Gb B Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue. Abm Gb E I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome, B Gb Gb7 Gb B I took some comfort there. Interlude: B Abm Gb B Abm Gb E B Abm Lie-la-lie Ebm Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie Abm Lie la lie Gb B Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie B Abm Gb And I m laying out my winter clothes, and wishing I was gone, goin home Gb7 Gb B Ebm Abm Gb Where the New York City winters aren t bleedin me, leadin me goin home. B Abm In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade, Gb Gb7 Gb And he carries the reminders, of every glove that laid him down, B Abm Or cut him 'til he cried out in his anger and his shame, Gb E "I am leaving, I am leaving." B Gb Gb7 Gb B But the fighter still remains Outro: Abm Lie-la-lie Ebm Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie Abm Lie la lie Gb Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie 10x Gb B Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie
