    I am just a poor boy, though my story is seldom told. 
    E
    I have squandered my resistance, 
    E7EA
    For a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises. 
    F#m
    All lies and jest;

    When I left my home and my family I was no more than a boy, 
    E
    In the company of strangers, 
    E7EA
    In the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared. 
    F#mED
    Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters,

    In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade,

    And he carries the reminders, of every glove that laid him down,
