1.1. The boxer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdKjEHfHINQ
I am just a poor boy    Though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance    For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
All lies and jests    Still a man hears what he wants to hear    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 railway station running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters    Where the ragged people go    Looking for the places only they would know

Lie la lie ...

Asking only workman's wages    I come looking for a job
But I get no offers,    Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome    I took some comfort there

Lie la lie ...

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    Bleeding 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 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

Lie la lie ...


Tune all strings down one half step.

the boxer, written by paul simon, art garfunkel, sung by simon and garfunkel

tuning half step down. sounds fine with standard tuning tho. and also in the song, they are a little flat
on their tuning.
Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

this song uses travis picking, which is in most simon and garfunkel songs
basically a rocking baseline with your thumb on the 3 lowest strings then alternating high notes.

h - hammer on
p - pulloff

verse 1: 
Many's the time I've been mistaken, 
and many times confused 
Yes, and I've always felt forsaken, 
and certainly misused. 
Ah, but I'm all right, I'm all right. 
I'm just weary to my bones. 
Still you don't expect to be bright and bonvivant, 
so far away from home, 
so far away from home. 

verse 2: 
And I don't know a soul who's not been battered. 
I don't have a friend who feels at ease. 
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered, 
or driven to it's knees. 
Ah, but it's all right.  It's all right. 
For we've lived so well so long. 
Still, when I think of the road we're travelin' on, 
I wonder what's gone wrong.   
I can't help but wonder what's gone wrong. 

Part B 

And I dreamed I was dying. 
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly, 
and looking back down at me, smiled reassuringly. 
And I dreamed I was flying,  
and high up above my eyes could clearly see 
the Statue of Liberty sailing away to sea. 
And I dreamed I was flying. 
And we come on the ship they call the Mayflower. 
We come on the ship that sailed the moon.   
We come in age's most uncertain hours, 
and sing an American tune. 
Oh, and it's all right, it's all right, 
it's all right. 
You can't be forever blessed. 
Still tomorrow's gonna be another working day 
and I'm tryin' to get some rest; 
that's all - I'm trying to get some rest.

     D7         G7                     C  G7  D       G
     Still you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant
     C    F C  G      E7 Am Dm7 C   G13      C
     So far away from home, so far away from home

     C                  F    C     G7   C      G    E7
     And I don't know a soul who's not been battered
                    Am            E7           Am
     I don't have a friend that's feels at ease
     C              F     C       G7 C      G     C Bo7  Am   E7          Am
     I don't know a dream that's not been shattered or driven to it's knees
     C9         F   G         F   C            F     C  G  G#o7  Am   A7

     D7    G7                  C    G7       D         G
     Still when I think of the road we're travelin' on 
     C   F C      C  G        E7 Am      Dm7          C  G13          C
     I wonder what's gone wrong, I can't help but wonder what's gone wrong

                 C
                 And I dreamed I was dying...
                                   G      G7        Am    D#o7
		 I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
                                  G7       F C                G
		 And looking back down on me smiled reassuringly
                 G7                  C
		 And I dreamed I was flying....

                 C 
                 And I dreamed I was flying....
                             G       G7           Am        D#o7
		 And high up above my eyes could clearly see
                               G7        C               G
		 The Statue of Liberty - sailing away to sea
                G7                   C
		 And I dreamed I was flying....

     C                  F     C   G    C         G
     For we come on the ship they call Mayflower
     E7              Am        E7           Am
     We come on the ship that sailed the moon
        C           F C  G    C  G         C  Bo7  Am       E7         Am
     We come in the ages most uncertain hours and sing an American Tune
     C9              F   G         F   C          F  C  G E7 Am
     Aw, but it's alright, it's alright you can't be forever blessed
     D7       G                  C  G7 D       G
     Still tomorrow's gonna be another working day
     C         F    C  G            E7 Am      Dm7  C      G13     G7   C
     And I'm trying to get some rest, that's all I'm trying to get some rest

  Chords for "Papa Hobo"

Words & music by Paul Simon 1971


A |E |  |
Mm------

    |D            |D7
It's carbon and monoxide

   |G     F#    F |E
The ole Detroit perfume

  |D           |D7
It hangs on the highways

      |G
In the morning

      |A               |D   |
And it lays you down by noon

       |A
Oh Papa Hobo

       |            |G             |G7
You can see that I'm dressed like a schoolboy

     |C          |A/C#
But I feel like a clown

      |G        |E       |C
It's a natural reaction I learned

          |   Bm   Am  |G  |Bdim Am|G |  |Am G|Am G|Am G|Am |
In this basketball town


C       |  |
Sweep up
