Verse 1:
C
I am just a poor boy
                         Am
Though my story's seldom told,
        G
I have squandered my resistance
      G                               C
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises.
              Am
All lies and jest,
         G                F
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
                   C    G        C  
And disregards the rest.


Verse 2:
        C
When I left my home and my family
                     Am
I was no more than a boy
        G
In the company of strangers,
        G                         C
In the quiet of a railway station running scared.
        Am           G              F
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
                        C
Where the ragged people go
         G              F              C
Looking for the places only the would know.


Chorus 1:
        Am         Em
Lie la lie, lie la lie lie, lie la lie,
        Am
Lie la lie,
        G                            C
Lie la lie la lie la lie la la la la lie.


Verse 3:
        C
Asking only workmans wages
                     Am
I come looking for a job 
               G
But I get no offers,
        G                                 C
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue.
         Am               G                  F
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
                     C           G          C        
I took some comfort there, la la la


Verse 4:
	C
Now the years are rolling by me
		     Am
They are rocking evenly,
	G
And I am older than I once was
    G				  C
And younger than I’ll be that’s not unusual.
	 Am	       G		   F
It isn’t strange, after changes upon changes
		       C
We are more or less the same
      G              F                C
After changes we are more or less the same.


Chorus 2: (Same as chorus one)


Verse 5:
     C
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes 
                  Am
And wishing I was gone,
       G
Going home
           F                           C
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me,
Em             Am         G     
  Bleeding me ____ Going home.


Verse 6:
        C
In the clearing stands the boxer
                     Am
And a fighter by his trade
       G
And he carries the reminders
    G
Of Every glove that layed him down
    C
Or cut him till he cried out     
                     Am
In his anger and his shame,
      G             F
"I am leaving, I am leaving!"
                      C       
But the fighter still remains.
     G               F             C              
I am leaving but the fighter still remains

Chorus 3: (Same) Repeat 3x to end
