Intro: C

C                                              Am
I am just a poor boy, though my storyʼs seldom told
       G
I have squandered my resistance
                                    C
For a pocketful of mumbles such are promises
             Am           G                 F
All lies and jest still a man hears what he wants to hear
               C        G C
And disregards the rest
 
       C                                            Am
When I left my home and family I was no more than a boy
       G
In the company of strangers
                                  C
In the quiet of a railway station running scared
       Am          G
Laying low seeking out the poorer
F                                C
quarters where the ragged people go
        G              F               C
Looking for the places only they would know

Chorus:
           Am
    Lie-la-lie
           Em
    Lie-la-la-la-la lie-la-lie
           Am
    Lie la lie
           G                           C
    Lie-la la la la la lie la la la la lie

       C                                        Am
Asking only workmans wages I come looking for a job
             G
But I get no offers
                                          C
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
       Am               G
I do declare there were times when
      F                               C
I was so lonesome I took some comfort there
      G              C
La-la-la-la-la-la-la

Instrumental: C Am G C
              Am G F C G C

Chorus:
           Am
    Lie-la-lie
           Em
    Lie-la-la-la-la lie-la-lie
           Am
    Lie la lie
           G                           C
    Lie-la la la la la lie la la la la lie

         C                                              Am
Then Iʼm laying out my winter clothes and wishing I was gone
                                                  C
Going home where the New York City winters arenʼt bleeding me
Em          Am
Leading me-e
      G    C
Going home
 
       C                                            Am
In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade
       G
And he carries the reminders
                                     C
Of evʼry glove that laid him down or cut him till he cried out
                     Am
In his anger and his shame
      G             F                                 C
«I am leaving, I am leaving.» but the fighter still remains
        G F C
Hm, hm, hm

Chorus:
           Am
    Lie-la-lie
           Em
    Lie-la-la-la-la lie-la-lie
           Am
    Lie la lie
           G                           Am
    Lie-la la la la la lie la la la la lie
     
           Em
    Lie-la-la-la-la lie-la-lie
           Am
    Lie la lie
           G                           Am
    Lie-la la la la la lie la la la la lie
     
           Em
    Lie-la-la-la-la lie-la-lie
           Am
    Lie la lie
           G                           Am
    Lie-la la la la la lie la la la la lie
     
           Em
    Lie-la-la-la-la lie-la-lie
           Am
    Lie la lie
           G                           Am
    Lie-la la la la la lie la la la la lie
