[Verse]
C
I am just a poor boy
          C       Em      Am
Though my story's seldom told
       G
I have squandered my resistance
      G7             G6               C
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
C    G       Am
All lies and jests
        G                 F
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
                   C    C
And disregards the rest

       C
When I left my home and my family
      C       Em      Am
I was no more than a boy
       G
In the company of strangers
       G7           G6                  C
In the quiet of the railway station running scared
 G      Am           G               F
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
                        C
Where the ragged people go
         G             F               C
Looking for the places only they would know

[Chorus]
        Am             G
Lie-la-lie      Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie

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

[Verse]
       C
Asking only workman's wages
       C       Em     Am
I come looking for a job
             G
But I get no offers,
       G7               G6                C
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
  Em      Am                G                   F
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
                    C
I took some comfort there
         C
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
    C       Em      Am
And wishing I was gone
      G
Going home
          G7            G6             C
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Em       Am           G
Bleeding me, going home

[Chorus]
C               C   Em   Am     G
La   laaa       La  la  laa     Ahhh
  
C               C   Em   Am     G
La   laaa       La  la  laa     Ahhh

F        C
Laa la la la

[Solo]          G/B Am G F C Em Am G F C G F C
During solo play the verse chord progression 

[Bridge]
       C
In the clearing stands a boxer
      C       G      Am
And a fighter by his trade
       G
And he carries the reminders
   G7               G6
Of ev'ry glove that layed him down
   C
Or 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

[Chorus]
        Am             G
Lie-la-lie      Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
       Am              F               G               
Lie la lie      Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la

        Am             G

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