[C]I am just a poor boy,
though my story's [C/B]seldom [Am]told   
I have [G]squandered my resistance
for a [G7]pocketful of [G6]mumbles, such are [C]promises.
All lies and [Am]jest, still a [G]man hears what he [F]wants to hear
and disregards the [C]rest, hmmmm[G]    [C]    

When I [C]left my home and my family,
I was no more [C/B]than a [Am]boy   
In the [G]company of strangers
In the [G7]quiet of the [G6]railway station, [C]runnin scared
Laying [Am]low, seeking [G]out the poorer [F]quarters,
where the ragged people [C]go  
Looking [G]for the places [F]only they would [C]know

Lie - la - [Am]lie,   
lie - la - [Em]lie - la - lie - la - lie
Lie - la - [Am]lie.   
Lie - la - [G]lie - la - lie - la - [G7]lie - la, la,la,la, [C]lie.

Asking [C]only workmans wages,
I come lookin [C/B]for a [Am]job,   
but I get no of[G]fers
Just a [G7]come on from the [G6]whores
on Seventh [C]avenue I [C/B]do de    [Am]clare,
there were [G]times when I was [F]so lonesome
I took some comfort [C]there
Ooo - la - [G]la - la - la - la - la [C]    

[C]    [C/B]    [Am]    [G]    [G7]    [G6]    [C]    
[C]    [C/B]    [Am]    [G]    [F]    [C]    [Em7]    [Am7]    [G]    [C]    
Lie - la - [Am]lie,   
lie - la - [Em]lie - la - lie - la - lie
Lie - la - [Am]lie.   
Lie - la - [G]lie - la - lie - la - [G7]lie - la, la,la,la, [C]lie.

Then I'm [C]laying out my winter clothes
and [C/B]wishing I was [Am]gone, going [G]home
Where the [G7]New York city [G6]winters
aren't [C]bleedin me,[Em] leadin me [Am]    
Going [G]home [G7]    [G6]    [C]    

In the [C]clearing stands a boxer,
and a fighter [C/B]by his [Am]trade
And he [G]carries the reminders of [G7]every
glove that [G6]laid him down or [C]cut him
till he cried out in his anger [C/B]and his [Am]shame
I am [G]leaving, I am [F]leaving,
but the fighter still re[C]mains
[Em7]    [Am7]    [G]    [F]    [C]    

Lie - la - [Am]lie,   
lie - la - [Em]lie - la - lie - la - lie
Lie - la - [Am]lie.   
Lie - la - [G]lie - la - lie - la - [G7]lie - la, la,la,la, [Am]lie.   

Lie - la - [Am]lie,   
lie - la - [Em]lie - la - lie - la - lie
Lie - la - [Am]lie.   
Lie - la - [G]lie - la - lie - la - [G7]lie - la, la,la,la, [Am]lie.   


I am just a poor boy,
though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
for a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises.
All lies and jest, still a man hears what he wants to hear
and disregards the rest, hmmmm

When I left my home and my family,
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station, runnin scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters,
where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Lie - la - lie,
lie - la - lie - la - lie - la - lie
Lie - la - lie.
Lie - la - lie - la - lie - la - lie - la, la,la,la, lie.

Asking only workmans wages,
I come lookin for a job,
but I get no offers
Just a come on from the whores
on Seventh avenue I do declare,
there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there
Ooo - la - la - la - la - la - la



Lie - la - lie,
lie - la - lie - la - lie - la - lie
Lie - la - lie.
Lie - la - lie - la - lie - la - lie - la, la,la,la, lie.

Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
and wishing I was gone, going home
Where the New York city winters
aren't bleedin me, leadin me
Going home

In the clearing stands a boxer,
and a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders of every
glove that laid him down or cut him
till he cried out in his anger and his shame
I am leaving, I am leaving,
but the fighter still remains

Lie - la - lie,
lie - la - lie - la - lie - la - lie
Lie - la - lie.
Lie - la - lie - la - lie - la - lie - la, la,la,la, lie.

Lie - la - lie,
lie - la - lie - la - lie - la - lie
Lie - la - lie.
Lie - la - lie - la - lie - la - lie - la, la,la,la, lie.
