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.

B62 G#m63 F#64 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
