lie._____________________
ADDITIONAL WORDS:
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.
Ooo-la-la la la la la.
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,
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's laid him down
Or cut him 'til he cried out in his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving."
But the fighter still remains.
Quite a sad song, but one of my favourites.
:-)
Cheers Richard
