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 5th G I am just a poor boy G/F# Em Though my story's seldom told D I have squandered my resistance C G For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises G/F# Em All lies and jests D C Still a man hears what he wants to hear C/B G And disregards the rest G When I left my home and my family G/F# Em I was no more than a boy D In the company of strangers C G In the quiet of the railway station running scared G/F# Em D C Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters G Where the ragged people go D C Em G/F# G Looking for the places only they would know Chorus: Em Lie-la-lie D Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie Em Lie la lie C D G Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie G Asking only workman's wages G/F# Em I come looking for a job D But I get no offers, C G Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue G/F# Em D C I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome G I took some comfort there G Then I'm laying out my winter clothes G/F# Em And wishing I was gone D Going home C G Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me G/F# Em D Bleeding me, going home Repeat 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 progression G In the clearing stands a boxer G/F# Em And a fighter by his trade D And he carries the reminders C Of ev'ry glove that layed him down G Or cut him till he cried out G/F# Em In his anger and his shame D C "I am leaving, I am leaving" G But the fighter still remains Em Lie-la-lie D Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie Em Lie la lie C D Em Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie Em Lie-la-lie D Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie Em Lie la lie C D Em Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie D Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie Em Lie la lie C D G Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie
