thats just an example but its kind of confusing for this song so i'm just putting up the
because i just strum them instead of bothering with the other way, i guess i'm just lazy.

I[C] am just a poor boy, though my story's seld[Am]om told
I have sq[G]uandered my resistance, for a [F]pocketful of mumbles, such are
All lies are je[Am]st, still a m[G]an hears what he w[F]ants to hear and disregards the
r[C]est, hmm[G] hmm hmm e[F]tc... [G]        [C]

All verses are played the same.

[C]      Lie la [Am]lie, lie la l[G]ie la lie la lie,
lie la l[Am]ie, lie la [F]lie la la l[G]ie la la la [C]lie.

When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Lie la lie ...

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

Lie la lie ...

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
Bleeding me, going home

[C]     leading [Em]me, going [G]home  [G7]       [C]

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that layed him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains

Lie la lie ...

And thats about it, pretty easy chords questions comments emaile me @
