Boxer (Acoustic)
As played live by Brian Fallon on KEXP

Chord placement is approximate...play through it a couple times and you'll get it.

Tuning: Full Step Down

Intro: 
C Am F G

[Verse]
C                                                                 
I know you got your pride and your prose tucked just like a tommy gun
Am
Somewhere in the smoke just in case you needed some
F
I heard it's been a ride, rougher than the last one
G
Once you used to say, oh, the harder they come
C
But he, he swears he's praying for a good time
Am
And he, he said he just doesn't miss her
F                                           G
And I have heard you never really lose it, do ya? do ya?


[Chorus]
C
You took it all gracefully on the chin
Am
Knowing that the beatings had to some day end
F                                               G
You found the bandages inside the pen and the stitches on the radio
C
But there was something heavy holding you down
Am
And there were whispers that were driving you crazy
F
And now you haunt the heart of this town
G
Remember when I knew a boxer, baby


[Verse]
C
And your tattooed knuckles, oh how they grind down
Am
Try to be a man, tough just like your father
F
Try to settle down, more like calm down
G
Remember them songs and the reasons we were singing for
C
But he said, he just doesn't miss her
Am
And he, he says it's somewhere in his framework
F                                            G
And I have heard you never really lose it, do ya? do ya?


[Chorus]
C
You took it all gracefully on the chin
Am
Knowing that the beatings had to some day end
F                                                G
You found the bandages inside the pen and the stitches on the radio
C
But there was something heavy holding you down
Am
And there were reasons that were driving you crazy
F
Until you haunt the heart of this town
G
Remember when I knew a boxer


[Bridge]
         Am                              C
And you can wait all night long, until it all goes wrong
           G
And you waste away your soul
            F              G
And you can wait wait wait


[Chorus]
                        C
You took it all gracefully on the chin
Am
Knowing that the beatings had to some day end
F                                              G
You found the bandages inside the pen and the stitches on the radio
C
But there was something heavy holding you down
Am
And there were whispers that were driving you crazy
F
Until you haunt the heart of this town
G
Remember when I knew a boxer, baby

The chord placements are a bit off on alot of places but I guess UG messed that one up. Great tab otherwise!
