7 7   7  -7  7    6
I am just a poor boy, 
  6    -6   7   7   8  -8   -7
though my stor-y's sel-dom told.
-7 -8   -7     7   7  -7  7   -5
I have squan-dered my re-sis-tance,
-5  6 -6  -6  -6  -6 -6   6
For a poc-ket-ful of mum-bles, 
 5   -5   -6  6  5
such are prom-is-es.
 8   8   -8   8
All lies and jest.
  8   8  8   -8    -8  -8  -8   -7  -7
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
-7  -7  -7   7   -6   7 
and dis-re-gards the rest.
6   -6  7   -5  -5  6   -6  6   -5  5
mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm,

 6  -6  7   7   7    7  7   7 -6 6
When I left my home and my fam-i-ly 
6 -6  7   8    8  -8 -7
I was no more than a boy,
-7 -7  -7   7  7 7    7    -5
In the com-pan-y of strang-ers,
-5  6  -6  -6 -6 -6   -6   6   5   -5
In the qui-et of the rail-way sta-tion, 
-6   6     5       8  -8   8
Run-nin' scared.  Lay-ing low, 
 8   -8   8  -8   -8  -8  -8   -7
seek-ing out the poor-er quar-ters,
 -7   -7  -7  -7  -7  -6  7
Where the rag-ged peo-ple go.
 6   -6   7  -5   -5  6   
Look-in' for the plac-es, 
-6 -6  6    -5    5
on-ly they would know.

 8  -8  8    8  -8  8  -8 -8  -7  7
Lie-la-lie, Lie-la-lie la lie la lie
 8  -8  8   -9  10 -10 10 -9 8  -9
Lie-la-lie, Lie-la-lie la la la la 
8  8  8  -8  8
la la la la lie

 7   7  7  7   7     7    7  6
Ask-ing on-ly work-man's wag-es 
5  -5   6   6    6  6  6
I come look-in' for a job,
 6  6  6  6  6   -5
But I get no of-fers,
 -5  6  -6  -6  -6  -6    -6
Just a come-on from the whores 
6   5   -5  -6  6 5
on Sev-enth Ave-n-ue.
8 8  -8   8     8    8    -8
I do de-clare there were times 
 -8 -8 -8  -8  -7   -7
when I was so lone-some,
-7 -7   -7   7   -6    7
I took some com-fort there.

8  -8  8    8  -8  8  -8 -8  -7  7
Lie-la-lie, Lie-la-lie la lie la lie
 8  -8  8   -9  10 -10 10 -9 8  -9
Lie-la-lie, Lie-la-lie la la la la 
8  8  8  -8  8
la la la la lie

 6  -6   7   7   7  7   7   6     6
And I’m lay-ing out my win-ter clothes, 
-6   7    8  8 -8   -7   -7 6    7
and wish-ing I was gone, go-in’ home
 -5    6  -6   -6  -6 -6 -6   6
Where the New York Ci-ty win-ters 
 5  -5    -6  6   5    8   -8  -7 -7 6    7
Are-n’t bleed-in’ me, lead-in’ me go-in' home.

6  -6    7    7    7    7  7  6
In the clear-ing stands a box-er 
6  -6   7   8  8  -8   -7
and a fight-er by his trade,
-7  -7 -7   7    7  7   7   -5
And he car-ries the re-mind-ers 
6  -6  -6  -6    -6   -6   6   5
of ev-‘ry glove that laid him down,
-5 -6   6    5  -5  -6    6
Or cut him 'til he cried out 
7   7  7   8   8  -8    8
in his an-ger and his shame,
 8 8   8   -8  -8 -8  -8  -7
"I am leav-ing, I am leav-ing."
-7  -7   -7   -7   7   -6   7
But the fight-er still re-mains.

8  -8  8    8  -8  8  -8 -8  -7  7
Lie-la-lie, Lie-la-lie la lie la lie
 8  -8  8   -9  10 -10 10 -9 8  -9
Lie-la-lie, Lie-la-lie la la la la 
8  8  8  -8  8
la la la la lie
