THE BOXER chords and lyrics By SIMON & GARFUNKEL

  VERSION 1  

Verse :
G                                                Em
I am just a poor boy, though my story's seldom told
           D
I have squandered my resistance
                      G
For a pocketful of mumbles such are promises
             Em            D                  C
All lies and jest still a man hears what he wants to hear
                    G      D    G
And disregards the rest

                                                     Em
When I left my home and family I was no more than a boy
         D
In the company of strangers
        Am7        G
In the quiet of a railway station running scared
       Em           D                C                            G
Laying low seeking out the poorer quarters where the ragged people go
         D              C    Bm   Am    G
Looking for the places only they would know

Interlude :
        Em
Lie-la-lie
        D
Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
        Em
Lie la lie
D                       C           D   G
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie

Verse :
                                                 Em
Asking only workmans wages I come looking for a job
                D
But I get no offers
         Am7              G
Just a come-on from the whores on seventh avenue
        Em                 Am7     D     C                                 G
I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome I took some comfort there

Interlude :
        D               G
Ooo-la-la la la la la

        Em
Lie-la-lie
        D
Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
        Em
Lie la lie
D                       C           D   G
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie

Verse :
G
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
D7  G              Em
And wishing I was gone
       D             Am7      D7               D  G
Going home where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
            Em
Leading me
        D
Going Home

       G                                            Em
In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade
          D
And he carries the reminders
    D7               G                        Am7     D7        G
Of ev'ry glove that laid him down or cut him 'till he cried out
                        Em
In his anger and his shame
        D              C                              G       D G  D      C      G
'I am Leaving, I am Leaving.'  But the Fighter still remains

Interlude :
        Em
Lie-la-lie
        D
Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
        Em
Lie la lie
D                        C             Em
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie
