Just Another Poor Boy  Chris Deburgh

[G]He was but a travelle[Em]r on the lonely road[C] of life, [D]         [G]
[G]She, her name was Mary, a lady[Em] of the n[Am]ight,          [D]
[C]She found him lying in that r[D]oad, on a winter[B]'s night so cold,      [Em]
[Am]Just another poor b[D]oy, treat him right,       [G]  [-]  [C]  [-]  [D]  [-]  [G]  [-]  [C]  [-]  [D]
She saw [G]that he was hungry and g[Em]ave him food to[C] eat,         [D]          [G]
She knew [G]that he was weary and he ha[Em]d no place to sl[Am]eep,                    [D]
[C]She took him home to her own bed, [D]she lay down his w[B]ounded head                  [Em]
and wash[Am]ed away the world from hi[D]s hands and his feet,                     [G]  [-]  [C]  [-]  [D]  [-]  [G]  [-]  [B]
He was just a[Em]nother poor boy,____ just ano[D]th[-]er[C] poor boy,
When he cried ou[G]t in his sle[D]ep she he[Em]ld him tight,[D]           [C]
[Em]Just another poor boy,____ just[D] a[-]no[C]ther poor boy,
And she gave hi[G]m love and co[D]mfort through[Em] the night,                 [C]
                          Em - D - C - G - Em - D - C - G - C - G

Till the mornings light....
At night she sat beside him, by the fire he would talk,
He said all men were brothers and that love could conquer all,
Many gathered round to hear, many for his life did fear,
In trouble times like these men seldom talked.
Oh they came to him one morning at the breaking of the day,
She woke to hear him calling as they carried him away,
[C]Accusing him of spreading lies and hate,[D]
[B]His public meetings were a danger to the s[Em]tate,
some soldi[C]er said "Who was he anyway?"[D]                [E]
[F#m]Just another poor [E]boy, just an[D]other poor boy,
And the tears [A]were falling fro[E]m her fa[F#m]ce like rai[E]n,           [D]
[F#m]Just another poor boy,____ jus[E]t [-]an[D]other poor boy,
And they hung hi[A]m on the hill[E]side far [F#m]away,            [D]
And on the ground she lay.... poor[F#m] boy....
Oh my Lord.[F#m].... Oh my lord....oh my Lord...
[F#m]Just another poor boy,____ jus[E]t [-]an[D]other poor boy,
And the tears [A]were falling fro[E]m her fa[F#m]ce like rai[E]n,           [D]
[F#m]Just another poor boy,____ just[E] a[-]no[D]ther boy,
And they hung hi[A]m on the hill[E]side far [F#m]away, just another[D] poor boy
[F#m]Just another poor boy,___ just[E] a[-]no[D]ther poor boy,
And she never d[A]reamed she'[E]d see his face aga[F#m]in!      [E]         [D]
