    I am just a poor boy
    Though my stories seldom told
    I have squandered my existence
    For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
    All lies and jests, still a man hears
    What he wants to ear and disregards the rest

    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 railwaystation running scared
    Laying low, seeking aout the poorer quarters
    Where the ragged people go
    Looking for the places only they would know.

    (chorus)
    Lie la lie...

    Asking only workmans wages
    I come looking for a job but I get no offers
    Just a come on from the whores on 7th avenue
    I do declare
    There where times when I was so lonesome
    I took some comfort there
    La la lie lie lie lie lie

    (chorus)

    Now I'm laying out my winter clothes
    And wishing I was gone going home
    Where the new york city winters aren't bleeding me
    Leading me, going home

    In the clearing stands a boxer
    And a fighter by his trade
    And he carrys the reminders
    Of every 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

    (chorus)
