The Boxer chords  (version 1)
Simon and Garfunkel *

Capo II

A

A                                               F#m
I am just a poor boy, though my story is seldom told.
       E
I have squandered my resistance,
      E7           E                 A
For a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises.
             F#m
All lies and jest;
         E                 D                                A   E E7 E A
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.

A                                               F#m
When I left my home and my family I was no more than a boy,
       E
In the company of strangers,
       E7           E                A
In the quiet of the railway station, runnin' scared.
       F#m          E              D
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters,
                        A
Where the ragged people go.
        E               D    E    E7    A
Lookin' for the places, only they would know.

F#m      
Lie-la-lie
       C#m
Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
       F#m
Lie la lie
       E                               A
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie 
 
       A                                         F#m
Asking only workman's wages I come lookin' for a job,
             E
But I get no offers,
       E7               E                 A
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue.
       F#m              E                   D
I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome,
                    A     E E7 E A
I took some comfort there.

A F#m E A F#m E D A

F#m      
Lie-la-lie
       C#m
Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
       F#m
Lie la lie
       E                               A
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie

A                                               F#m        E
And I m laying out my winter clothes, and wishing I was gone, goin home
          E7            E              A            C#m       F#m     E
Where the New York City winters aren t bleedin me, leadin me  goin home.

A                                             F#m
In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade,
       E                         E7               E
And he carries the reminders, of every glove that laid him down,
   A                                              F#m
Or cut him 'til he cried out in his anger and his shame,
      E             D
"I am leaving, I am leaving."
                        A    E E7 E A
But the fighter still remains

F#m      
Lie-la-lie
       C#m
Lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie
       F#m
Lie la lie
       E                               
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie 10x

E                                      A
Lie-la-lie la la la la lie la la la la lie
