   ADDITIONAL WORDS:
   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.
   Ooo-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's laid him down
   Or cut him 'til he cried out in his anger and his shame
   "I am leaving, I am leaving."
   But the fighter still remains.


Quite a sad song, but one of my favourites.
:-)
Cheers   Richard

MY MOST WANTED...

      Put it there    -  Paul McCartney    (need some help)
      Still haven't found what I'm looking for - U2
      Starman         -  David Bowie

      (I'm sure that Scott Yanoff must have the U2 one)
