                           THE BOSTON BURGLER

     INTRO:   C     D7    G   Em       C       D7     G

            G         C       G   D7         G       Em        G
     I was born and raised in Boston,    A place you all know well
             C      D7     G  Em           G       C        D7
     Brought up by honest parents,   The truth to you I'll tell
             G       C     G   D7          G          Em   G
     Brought up by honest Parents,   And raised most tenderly
          C   D7        G      Em            C       D7     G
     Till I became a sporting lad,   At the age of twenty-three

         G    C        G  D7       G      Em      G
     My character was taken,   And I was sent to jail
           C          D7        G       Em         G      C      D7
     My friends they came and tried in vain,   To get me out on bail
          G     C       G  D7          G       Em       G
     The jury found me guilty,   The clerk he wrote it down
           C        D7          G       Em      C         D7    G
     The judge he passed the sentence,  I was bound for Charlestown

           G       C        G       D7           G     Em      G
     The placed me on an eastbound train,   One cold December day
          C      D7    G           Em                 G         C    D7
     And every station we passed through,  You could hear the people say
            G         C     G  D7        G          Em      G
     There goes the Boston burgler,  In cold chains he is bound
          C        D7   G          Em      C        D7     G
     For one crime or another,     He is bound for Charlestown

          C        D7   G      Em          C        D7     G

          G        C         G   D7            G     Em      G
     All you that have your freedom,  Take a warning if you can
           C       D7          G        Em               G       C      D7
     And don't go round the streets at night,  Breaking laws of God and man
         G      C            G    D7          G     Em          G
     For if you do, You'll surely rue,   And find yourself Like me
        C    D7         G     Em             C     D7    G
     Serving up,  For twenty years,  In the pen-i-tent-iary
