Intro: B0
0
B1                                               G#m2
1I am just a poor boy, though my story is seldom told.
       F#3
2I have squandered my resistance,
      F#74           F#5                 B6
3For a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises.
             G#m7
4All lies and jest;
         F#8                 E9                                B10   F#11 F#712 F#13 B14
5Still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.

       B15                                               G#m16
8When I left my home and my family I was no more than a boy,
       F#17
9In the company of strangers,
       F#718           F#19                B20
10In the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared.
       G#m21          F#22              E23
11Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters,
                        B24
12Where the ragged people go.
        F#25               E26    F#27    F#728    B29
13Lookin' for the places, only they would know.

       B35                                         G#m36
22Asking only workman's wages I come lookin' for a job,
             F#37
23But I get no offers,
       F#738               F#39                 B40
24Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue.
       G#m41              F#42                   E43
25I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome,
                    B44     F#45 F#746 F#47 B48
26I took some comfort there.

35And I m laying out my winter clothes, and wishing I was gone, goin home
          F#765            F#66              B67            D#m68       G#m69     F#70
36Where the New York City winters aren t bleedin me, leadin me  goin home.

       B71                                             G#m72
39In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade,
       F#73                         F#774               F#75
40And he carries the reminders, of every glove that laid him down,
   B76                                              G#m77
41Or cut him 'til he cried out in his anger and his shame,
      F#78             E79
42"I am leaving, I am leaving."
                        B80    F#81 F#782 F#83 B84
43But the fighter still remains
