I am just a poor boy.
I have squandered my resistance
All lies and jests
And disregards the rest.
When I left my home
I was no more than a boy
In the quiet of the railway station,
Laying low,
Where the ragged people go
Only they would know
Lie la lie
Asking only workman's wages
But I get no offers,
On Seventh Avenue
There were times when I was so lonesome

And wishing I was gone,
Where the New York City winters
Leading me,

And a fighter by his trade
Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
In his anger and his shame,
But the fighter still remains
