Worked this out from Cyndi's amazing live performance on the "Cyndi In Paris", 
which I believe if you want you need to get imported. 
(Worry not - it's up on YouTube in HD though!)

This song is one of her best but under-appreciated by execs at the time. As a 
result, not many folks know it - but verily does it rock. 

Intro
Dm    
Dm/C
Dm/G
Dm

Verse I
Bb                      C
You never knew yourself well enough, aahh
Bb                      C
But she never knew you at all
G                                 F
And when she put you out on your own
            Em         
It may have stolen your innocence
F                    G
But not, no not your soul


Chorus I
C                            Am7/E
Tell me, where is little boy bl-u-u-ue
                C        Em         F          G     F
You'll find him standing always one step ahead,     oh
C                               Am7/E
Fast a little, shy a little, boy blue
F
Wise blood runs warm and deep
       G   
On the street kids walking

Just a kid walking, just a kid


Verse II
Bb                      C
You send a letter with photographs, aahh
Bb                          C
And I'll tuck them under my dreams
G                                 F
And if we wake up old beyond our years
             Em
Not quite as brave as we seem
              F                     G
It's just the pain that never disappears


Chorus II

C                            Am7/E
Tell me, where is little boy bl-u-u-ue
                C        Em         F          G     F
You'll find him standing always one step ahead,     oh
C                               Am7/E
Dance a little, cry a little, boy bl-u-u-ue
F
Wise blood runs warm and deep
       G
On the street kids walking

Just a kid walking

Verse III
G                                 F
And when she put you out on your own
            Em         
It may have stolen your innocence
F                    G
But not, no not your soul

Chorus III
C                            Am7/E
Tell me, where is little boy bl-u-u-ue
                C        Em         F          G     F
You'll find him standing always one step ahead,     oh
C                               Am7/E
Fast a little, shy a little, boy blue
F
Wise blood runs warm and deep
       G   
On the street kids walking

Just a kid walking, just a kid
