                           * * * * * * * * 
Verse 1:
    C*                           F*
Now let me tell you a story of a big ole' skinhead 
     C*                 G*
On a tragic and fateful day 
       C*                                F*
He put 10 cents in his pocket kicked his wife and family 
            C           G     C
And went to ride on the M.B.T.A

Chorus:
       C                   F                       C                G
Did he ever return? No, he never returned, and his fate is still unknown
        C                       F
He will ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston
         C            G       C
He's the skinhead who never returned...

Verse 2:
    C*                    F*
Skinhead goes down to the Kendall Sq. Station 
       C*                   G*
And he changes for Jamaica Plain, 
    C*                        F*
The conductor says skinhead I need a nickel, 
         C           G      C
Skinhead punches him in the brain 

Chorus x1

Verse 3:
    C*                      F*        
Now all night long skinhead drives through the station 
         C*                G*
Thinking what can I go and see 
      C*                     F*           C         G     C
Can't afford to buy crack in Chelsea or a bundle in Roxbury

Chorus x1

Verse 4:
    C                      (F)
Skinhead's wife goes to the Scully Square Station 
    (C)                 (G)
Everyday at quarter past two, 
   (C)                                             (F)   
And through the open window she hands skinhead a grenade 
      (C)           (G)      (C)
As the train comes a rumbling through

Chorus x1

Verse 5:
       (C)                          (F)
Now you citizens of Boston don't you think its a scandal 
       (C)                 G
How the skinhead stole the train? 
           C                       F
What's the big ****in' deal, he'll work for beer 
        C        G         C
Let the skinhead drive the train

Chorus x2

C             G       C
Skinhead that never returned x3

(now they sing the chorus drunk in the bar)
