The Boxer Recorded by Alison Krause and Shawn Colvin Written by Paul Simon
C G7 Am I am just a poor boy though my story's seldom told G7 I have squandered my resistance C For a pocketful of mumbles such are promises G7 Am G7 F All lies and jest still a man hears what he wants to hear G7 C And disregards the rest mmm mmm mmm mmm
G7 Am When I left my home and my family I was no more than a boy G7 In the company of strangers C In the quiet of a railway station running scared Am G7 F Laying low seeking out the poorer quarters C Where the ragged people go G7 F C Looking for the places only they would know
Am Lie-la-lie Em Lie-la-la-lie lie-la-lie Am Lie-la-lie G7 Lie-la-la-lie lie-la-lie C Lie-la-la-la-lie
Am Asking only workman's wages I come looking for a job G7 But I get no offers C Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue G7 Am G7 F I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome G7 C I took some comfort there mmm mmm mmm mmm
Am Lie-la-lie Em Lie-la-la-lie lie-la-lie Am Lie-la-lie G7 Lie-la-la-lie lie-la-lie Am Lie-la-la-la-lie Em Lie-la-la-lie lie-la-lie Am Lie-la-lie G7 Lie-la-la-lie lie-la-lie C Lie-la-la-la-lie
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes Am G7 And wishing I was gone going home C Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me Em Am G7 Leading me going home
C In the clearing stands a boxer Am And a fighter by his trade G7 And he carries the reminders
Of every glove that laid him down C Or cut him till he cried out Am G7 In his anger and his shame I am leaving F C G7 F C I am leaving but the fighter still remains mmm mmm
