The Boxer Guitar Chords

 

C
I am just a poor boy.

                                   C/B       Am
Though my story’s seldom told,

            G
I have squandered my resistance

          G7                 G6
For a pocketful of mumbles,

                C
Such are promises

      C/B          Am
All lies   and jest

            G
Still, a man hears
     F
what he wants to hear

                                   C      G F G 
And disregards the rest.

              C
When I left my home

C
And my family,

                           C/B     Am
I was no more than a boy

            G
In the company of strangers

            G7                G6
In the quiet of the railway station,

C
Running scared,

C/B      Am
Laying low,

               G                         F
Seeking out the poorer quarters

                                              C
Where the ragged people go,

                G
Looking for the places

F       G                  C
Only they would know.

            Am
Lie-la-lie…..

           Em
Lie-la-la-la-la lie-la-lie
           Am
Lie la lie
           G                                     C
Lie-la la la la la lie la la la la lie

             C
Asking only workman’s wages

                            C/B   Am
I come looking for a job,

                      G
But I get no offers.

            G7                            G6
Just a come-on from the wh*res

                      C
On Seventh Avenue

   C/B      Am
I do    declare,

                     G
There were times when
  F
I was so lonesome

                                     C
I took some comfort there.

                 C
Then I’m laying out
C
my winter clothes

                        C/B   Am
And wishing I was gone

            G
Going home

                    G7                      G6
Where the New York City winters

            C
Aren’t bleeding me,

Em              Am
Leading me,

            G7        C
Going home.

            C
In the clearing stands a boxer,

                         C/B    Am
And a fighter by his trade

              G
And he carries the reminders

      G7                      G6
Of ev’ry glove that laid him down

      C
Or cut him till he cried out

                      C/B        Am
In his anger and his shame,

           G                     F
“I am leaving, I am leaving.”

                                       C
But the fighter still remains

            Am
Lie-la-lie…..

           Em
Lie-la-la-la-la lie-la-lie
           Am
Lie la lie
           G                                     Am
Lie-la la la la la lie la la la la lie

Am      Em
Lie-la-la-la-la lie-la-lie
           Am
Lie la lie
           G                                    Am
Lie-la la la la la lie la la la la lie (x6)
