C C                                             Am Am
I am just a poor boy though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
G7 G7 G6 G6 C C
For a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises
Am Am G G F F
All lies and jest, still a man hears what he wants to hear
C C G G G7 G7 G6 G6 C C
And disregards the rest

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

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

C C Am Am
Asking only workman's wages I come looking for a job
But I get no offers
G7 G7 G6 G6 C C
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
Am Am G G F F
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there
G G G7 G7 G6 G6 C C
Lie lie lie lie la

Then I'm laying out my winter clothes and wishing I was gone
Going home where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Leading me, going home.

In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade
And he carries a reminder ov ev'ry glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out in his anger and his shame
I am leaving, I am leaving
But the fighter still remains

Lie la lie ... etc.
