The Boxer

Simon & Garfunkel



C Am

I am just a poor boy though my story’s seldom told



G

I have squandered my resistance



F C

For a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises



Am G F

All lies and jest, still a man hears what he wants to hear



C G F Em Dm C

And disregards the rest m m m m ..


C Am

When I left my home and my family, I was no more than a boy



G

In the company of strangers



F C

In the quiet of a railway station, running scared



Am G F

Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters



C

Where the ragged people go



G F Em C

Looking for the places only they would know


C Am G Am G F C

Lie la lie Lie la lie Lie la lie Lie la lie Lie la lie


C Am

Asking only workman’s wages I come looking for a job



G

But I get no offers



F C

Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue



Am G F

I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome



C

I took some comfort there



G F C

Lie lie lie lie la


C Am

Then I’m laying out my winter clothes and wishing I was gone



G F C

Going home where the New York City winters aren’t bleeding me



Em Am G

Leading meeeeeeeeee to going home.


C Am

In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade



G F

And he carries a reminder of every glove that laid him down



C Am

Or cut him till he cried out in his anger and his shame



G F

I am leaving, I am leaving



C

But the fighter still remains





Romeo and Juliet




Dire Straits


Intro:


F Dm x4
Verse I:

F C Dm C F

A love struck Romeo sings the streets a serenade



F C Dm C Bb

Laying everybody low with a love song that he made



C Bb C F

Finds a street light steps out into the shade



Bb C

Says something like you and me babe, how about it?



F C Dm C F

Juliet says hey it’s Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack



F C Dm C Bb

He’s underneath the window, she’s singing hey la my boyfriends back



C Bb C F

You shouldn’t come around here singing up to people like that



Bb C

Anyway, what you gonna do about it?

Chorus I:

F C Dm C Bb

Juliet the dice was loaded from the start



F C Dm C Bb

And I bet, and you exploded in my heart.



F C Dm Bb

And I forget, I forget, the movie song



Gm F Bb C Dm C F

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?


Verse II:



F C Dm C F

Come up on different streets, they both the streets of shame



F C Dm C Bb

Both dirty both mean, yes and even and dream was just the same



C Bb C F

And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real.



Bb C

How can you look at me as if I was just another part of your deal



F C Dm C F

Well you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of gold.



F C Dm C Bb

You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold



C Bb C F

You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin yeah



Bb C

Now you just say oh Romeo yeah, I used to have a scene with him.


Chorus II:

F C Dm C Bb

Juliet when we made love you used to cry



F C Dm C Bb

You said I love you like the stars above I’ll love you till I die



F C Dm Bb

There’s a place for us, you know the movie song



Gm F Bb C Dm C F

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet?

Verse III:

F C Dm C F

I can’t do the talk, like they talk on the TV



F C Dm C Bb

I can’t do a love song, like the way it’s meant to be.



C Bb C F

I can’t do anything, but I’d do anything for you.



Bb C

I can’t do anything but be in love with you.



F C Dm C F

And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be



F C Dm C Bb

All I do is keep the beat and bad company.



C Bb C F

All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme



Bb C

Juliet I’d do the stars with you anytime.

Repeat Chorus II:

Verse IV:



F C Dm C F

A love struck Romeo, sings the streets a serenade.



F C Dm C Bb

Now he’s laying everybody low, with a love song that he made.



C Bb C F

Finds a convenient street light, steps out of the shade



Bb C

Says something like you and me babe how about it


Outro:

Bb C (As long as the lead player can do those tasty fills)

P.s. A second guitarist playing in first position really fills this song out if you are not doing it with a full band.
