    C (picked or strummed - listen to the song and it's simple enough)
    C
    I am just a poor boy 
    G/BAm
    Though my story's seldom told, 
    G
    I have squandered my resistance 
    G7C
    For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises. 
    G/BAm
    All lies and jest, 
    GF
    Still a man hears what he wants to hear 
    CGC
    And disregards the rest. 
    C
    When I left my home and my family 
    G/BAm
    I was no more than a boy 
    G
    In the company of strangers, 
    G7C
    In the quiet of a railway station running scared. 
    G/BAmGF
    Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters 
    C
    Where the ragged people go 
    GFC
    Looking for the places only the would know. 
    AmEm
    Lie la lie, lie la lie lie, lie la lie, 
    Am
    Lie la lie, 
    G7C
    Lie la lie la lie la lie la la la la lie. 
    C
    Asking only workmans wages 
    G/BAm
    I come looking for a job 
    G
    But I get no offers, 
    G7C
    Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue. 
    G/BAmGF
    I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome 
    CGC
    I took some comfort there, la la la la la. 
    Musical bridge:

    (Same as chorus one)
    C
    Then I'm laying out my winter clothes 
    G/BAm
    And wishing I was gone, 
    G
    Going home 
    G7C
    Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me, 
    EmAmGC
    Bleeding me ____ Going home. 
    C
    In the clearing stands the boxer 
    G/BAm
    And a fighter by his trade 
    G
    And he carries the reminders 
    G7
    Of Every glove that layed him down 
    C
    Or cut him till he cried out 
    G/BAm
    In his anger and his shame, 
    GF
    "I am leaving, I am leaving!" 
    CGFC
    But the fighter still remains.
