The Boxer chords
Simon and Garfunkel *

Capo IV

G

[Verse 1]
G                                               Em
I am just a poor boy, though my story is seldom told.
       D
I have squandered my resistance,
      D7           D                 G
For a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises.
              Em
All lies and jest;
         D                 C                                G   D D7 D G
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.

[Verse 2]
       G                                                Em
When I left my home and my family I was no more than a boy,
       D
In the company of strangers,
       D7           D                G
In the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared.
        Em          D              C
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters,
   C                    G
Where the ragged people go.
        D               C    D    D7    G
Lookin' for the places, only they would know.

[Chorus]
        Em      
Lie-la-lie
        Bm
Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
        Em
Lie la lie
       D                               G
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie 

[Verse 3] 
       G                                          Em
Asking only workman's wages I come lookin' for a job,
             D
But I get no offers,
       D7               D                 G
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue.
        Em              D                   C
I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome,
   C                G     D D7 D G
I took some comfort there.

G  Em D G  Em D C G

[Chorus]
        Em      
Lie-la-lie
        Bm
Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
        Em
Lie la lie
       D                               G
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie 

[Bridge]
        G                                               Em        D
And I'm laying out my winter clothes, and wishing I was gone, goin home
          D7            D              G           Bm        Em    D    D D7 D G
Where the New York City winters aren't bleedin me, leadin me  goin home.

[Verse 4]
       G                                              Em
In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade,
       D                         D7               D
And he carries the reminders, of every glove that laid him down,
   G                                               Em
Or cut him 'til he cried out in his anger and his shame,
      D             C
"I am leaving, I am leaving."
      C                 G    D D7 D G
But the fighter still remains

[Chorus]
        Em      
Lie-la-lie
        Bm
Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
        Em
Lie la lie
       D                               
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie 10x

D                                      G
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie
