The Boxer

C                                             Am
I’m just a poor boy, though my story’s seldom told
       G                                                            C
I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles such are promises
             Am           G                 F                                C
All lies and jest still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest
           G                 C
Hmmm, Hmm, Hmmm, Hmmm, Hmmm, Hmmm

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

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

Asking only workman’s wages, I come looking for a job
             G              G7                                C
But I get no offers, just a come-on from the girls on Seventh Avenue
       Am                G                F                                C
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome, I took some comfort there
                G                       C
Ooo - la - la - la - la - la - la - la

         C                           G7  C             Am          G
Then I’m laying out my winterclothes and wishing I was gone, going home
          Dm7      G7      C      G    C                       Am       G    C
Where the New York City winters aren’t bleeding me, leading me,   going home

       C                                             Am
In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade
       G                        G7                                C
And he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him down or cut him
Dm      G7    C                        Am
Till he cried out in his anger and his shame,
     G             F                                C     G  G7  C
I am leaving, I am leaving, but the fighter still remains

Refrein (repeat and fade out)
