Capo III

The Boxer

Paul Simon / Simon & Garfunkel: Bridge Over Troubled Water (1969)

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