« I'm just a poor boy
Though my story's seldom told

I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles

Such are promises:
All lies and jest still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

When I left my home and family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of a railway station

Running scared.
Laying low
Seeking out the poorer quarters where the ragged
People go
Looking for the places only they would know.


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

But I get no offers

Just a comeon from the hores on Seventh Avenue.
I do declare
There were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there
Oh la la
La la
La la.

Then 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 carries the reminders of ev'ry glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out in his anger an his shame:
I am leaving, I am leaving!
But the fighter still remains
