 Acoustic version on Seattle radio (2006-ish)

 Remember to tune the low E down to D.

 Intro: D Dsus4| D5 Dsus4| D x2

      D                               G      D
 mmm, Couldn't ask for a better night,two by two
                          G          D
 to the ring to the right point of view
                                     G          D
 we each return to the corner that's defined by you

 to the ring to the right, point of

 D A G A|
 
 D    A G  A  D    A      G  A        
 Lonely Reign, she is the boxer, she knows
 D         A        G   *      D  A      G   A            
 when and where to strike, and he is the boxer,
          D    A       G     A   D
 he knows no peaceful sleep tonight

 Doctor Mike was flight or flight at Dundrum School
 to the ring to the right point of

 No return,...no passion left to burn

 the boxers grow weary, their eyesight
                  D  A G A

 CHORUS, Intro (with whistle) 

 All's quiet on the front, smokey room
 boxer standing tall,peering through
 finding no one left to fight,what to do?
 to the ring to the right point of view 

 CHORUS with:

 We are the boxers, we know, no 
 peaceful sleep tonight

 lonely reign X3

 whistle solo over chorus chords,
 end on D

 simply the low E (dropped to D)
 and D strings descending in 
 unison from the fifth fret to
