The boxer (Simon & Garfunkel) – Gitártab és Akkordok

I am just a poor boy.
                        Am
Though my story's seldom told,
        G               
I have squandered my resistance
      G7              
For a pocket full of mumbles,
          C      
Such are promises
              Am
 All lies and jest
          G                 F
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
                   C  G F-Em=Dm C   
And disregards the rest.

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,
Running scared,
Laying low,
Seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go,
Looking for the places
F  -  Em = Dm    C  
Only they would know.

       Am          G                       Am 
Lie-la-lie, lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie, lie-la-lie
        G               F               C   
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie-la la la la lie.

Asking only workman's wages
I come looking 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.

Lie 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 bleeding me,
C        Em Am        G   C 
 Leading me,    going home.

In the clearing stands a boxer,
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry 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 ...
