Intro: B

B                                               G#m
I am just a poor boy, though my story is seldom told.
       F#
I have squandered my resistance,
      F#7           F#                 B
For a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises.
             G#m
All lies and jest;
         F#                 E                                B   F# F#7 F# B
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.


       B                                               G#m
When I left my home and my family I was no more than a boy,
       F#
In the company of strangers,
       F#7           F#                B
In the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared.
       G#m          F#              E
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters,
                        B
Where the ragged people go.
        F#               E    F#    F#7    B
Lookin' for the places, only they would know.

       B                                         G#m
Asking only workman's wages I come lookin' for a job,
             F#
But I get no offers,
       F#7               F#                 B
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue.
       G#m              F#                   E
I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome,
                    B     F# F#7 F# B
I took some comfort there.

        B                                               G#m        F#
And I m laying out my winter clothes, and wishing I was gone, goin home
          F#7            F#              B            D#m       G#m     F#
Where the New York City winters aren t bleedin me, leadin me  goin home.


       B                                             G#m
In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade,
       F#                         F#7               F#
And he carries the reminders, of every glove that laid him down,
   B                                              G#m
Or cut him 'til he cried out in his anger and his shame,
      F#             E
"I am leaving, I am leaving."
                        B    F# F#7 F# B
But the fighter still remains
