The Boxer  Waylon Jennings

P. Simon
Right for the Time
[C]I am just a poor boy, though my story's [C/B]seldom [Am]told
I have [G]squandered my resistence for a pocketful of mumbles, such are [C]promises
All [C/B]lies and [Am]jest, still a [G]man hears what he [F]wants to hear and disregards the [C]rest[G] [C]
When I [C]left my home and family I was no more [C/B]than a [Am]boy
In the [G]company of strangers in the quiet of a railway station' [C]runnin' scared
[C/B]Layin' [Am]low, seeking [G]out the poorer [F]quarters were the ragged people [C]go
Looking for the [G]places [F]only they would [C]know
Asking only workman's wages, I come looking for a job
But I get no offers, just a come on from the w***es on 7th Avenue
I do declare, there were some times I was so lonesome I took some comfort there
In the [C]clearing stands a boxer and a fighter [C/B]by his [Am]trade
And he [G]carries the reminders of every glove that laid him down
And [C]cut him 'til he cried out in his anger [C/B]and his [Am]shame
I am [G]leaving, I am [F]leaving, but the fighter still rem[C]ains
