Boxer  The Gaslight Anthem

Boxer (Acoustic)
As played live by Brian Fallon on KEXP
Chord placement is approximate...play through it a couple times and you'll get it.
Tuning: Full Step Down
Intro: C Am F G
[C]I know you got your pride and your prose tucked just like a tommy gun
[Am]Somewhere in the smoke just in case you needed some
[F]I heard it's been a ride, rougher than the last one
[G]Once you used to say, oh, the harder they come
[C]But he, he swears he's praying for a good time
[Am]And he, he said he just doesn't miss her
[F]And I have heard you never really lose it, d[G]o ya? do ya?
[C]You took it all gracefully on the chin
[Am]Knowing that the beatings had to some day end
[F]You found the bandages inside the pen and the st[G]itches on the radio
[C]But there was something heavy holding you down
[Am]And there were whispers that were driving you crazy
[F]And now you haunt the heart of this town
[G]Remember when I knew a boxer, baby
[C]And your tattooed knuckles, oh how they grind down
[Am]Try to be a man, tough just like your father
[F]Try to settle down, more like calm down
[G]Remember them songs and the reasons we were singing for
[C]But he said, he just doesn't miss her
[Am]And he, he says it's somewhere in his framework
[F]And I have heard you never really lose it, do[G] ya? do ya?
[C]You took it all gracefully on the chin
[Am]Knowing that the beatings had to some day end
[F]You found the bandages inside the pen and the sti[G]tches on the radio
[C]But there was something heavy holding you down
[Am]And there were reasons that were driving you crazy
[F]Until you haunt the heart of this town
[G]Remember when I knew a boxer
And you c[Am]an wait all night long, until it[C] all goes wrong
And you was[G]te away your soul
And you can [F]wait wait wait[G]
You took it all graceful[C]ly on the chin
[Am]Knowing that the beatings had to some day end
[F]You found the bandages inside the pen and the s[G]titches on the radio
[C]But there was something heavy holding you down
[Am]And there were whispers that were driving you crazy
[F]Until you haunt the heart of this town
[G]Remember when I knew a boxer, baby
