[Intro]

C x 4

C
I am just a poor boy.
                    G/B   Am
Though my story's seldom told,
       G/B       
I have squandered my resistance
      F
For a pocketful of mumbles,
         C
Such are promises
    G/B      Am
All lies and jest
         G/B                     F
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
                   C
And disregards the rest.

C
When I left my home

And my family,
              G/B    Am
I was no more than a boy
       G/B
In the company of strangers
       F
In the quiet of the railway station,
C
Running scared,
G/B    Am
Laying low,
            G          F
Seeking out the poorer quarters
                        C
Where the ragged people go,
        G/B     
Looking for the places
F               C
Only they would know.

       Am  G  Am  F  G  C
Lie-la-lie...

C
Asking only workman's wages
               Em    Am
I come looking for a job,
             G
But I get no offers,
       F
Just a come-on from the whores
            C
On Seventh Avenue
  Em        Am
I do declare,
           G/B
There were times when I was so
F
lonesome
                    C
I took some comfort there.

C
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
            Em    Am
And wishing I was gone,
G
Going home
          F
Where the New York City winters
          C
Aren't bleeding me,
Em       Am
Bleeding me,
      G
Going home.

C        Em Am G
La la la la la la 
C        Em Am G
La la la la la la
F        C
la la la la 


[Instrumental]

G/B Am G F C Em Am G F C G F C

C
In the clearing stands a boxer,

And a fighter by his trade
       G/B
And he carries the reminders
   F
Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
    C
And cut him till he cried out
             Em      Am
In his anger and his shame,
      G             F
"I am leaving, I am leaving."
        C  
But the fighter still remains

Am  G  Am  F  G  C
Lie-la-lie...        x 3
