Davey Moore


Verse 1:

A chord diagramA minorAm                             A chord diagramDmDm
It was out to California young Davey Moore did go,
   A chord diagramG+G                         A chord diagramC majorC                  A chord diagramE7E7
To meet with Sugar Ramos and trade him blow for blow
   A chord diagramA minorAm                                A chord diagramDmDm
He left his home in Springfield, his wife and children five;
    A chord diagramG+G                                   A chord diagramC majorC          A chord diagramE7E7
The spring was fast approaching, it was good to be alive.
    A chord diagramA minorAm                                 A chord diagramDmDm
His wife, she begged and pleaded, "you have to leave this game.
A chord diagramG+G                             A chord diagramC majorC               A chord diagramE7E7
Is it worth the bloodshed and is it worth the pain? "
    A chord diagramA minorAm                             A chord diagramDmDm
But Davey could not hear above the cheering crowd
         A chord diagramG+G             A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramE7E7
He was a champion, and champions are proud.


Chorus:
         A chord diagramA minorAm                              A chord diagramG+G
Hang his gloves upon the wall, shine his trophies bright clear,
        A chord diagramDmDm               A chord diagramE7E7
Another man will fall before we dry our tears
         A chord diagramA minorAm                              A chord diagramG+G
For the fighters must destroy as the poets must sing,
        A chord diagramDmDm                              A chord diagramE7E7
As the hungry crowd must gather for the blood upon the ring.


Verse 2:

    A chord diagramA minorAm                         A chord diagramDmDm
And thousands gave a roar when Davey Moore walked in,
A chord diagramG+G                             A chord diagramC majorC        A chord diagramE7E7
Another man to fight, another purse to win
    A chord diagramA minorAm                        A chord diagramDmDm
And all along the ringside, a sight beyond compare
    A chord diagramG+G                           A chord diagramC majorC                 A chord diagramE7E7
The money-chasing vultures were waiting for their share,
   A chord diagramA minorAm                               A chord diagramDmDm
He stood there in his corner and he waited for the bell;
    A chord diagramG+G                         A chord diagramC majorC              A chord diagramE7E7
The signal of the struggle of two men facin' hell;
    A chord diagramA minorAm                             A chord diagramDmDm
And when the bell was sounded, the blows began to rain,
    A chord diagramG+G                          A chord diagramC majorC               A chord diagramE7E7
And blows will lead to hate -- hate drives men insane.

Chorus:

         A chord diagramA minorAm                              A chord diagramG+G
Hang his gloves upon the wall, shine his trophies bright clear,
        A chord diagramDmDm               A chord diagramE7E7
Another man will fall before we dry our tears
         A chord diagramA minorAm                              A chord diagramG+G
For the fighters must destroy as the poets must sing,
        A chord diagramDmDm                              A chord diagramE7E7
As the hungry crowd must gather for the blood upon the ring.


Verse 3:

A chord diagramA minorAm                                       A chord diagramDmDm
The fists were flying fast and hard, the sweat was pouring down,
   A chord diagramG+G                               A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramE7E7
And Davey Moore grew weaker with ev'ry passin' round.
    A chord diagramA minorAm                           A chord diagramDmDm
His legs began to wobble and his arms began to strain,
   A chord diagramG+G                             A chord diagramC majorC              A chord diagramE7E7
He fell upon the canvas floor, a fog around his brain.
A chord diagramA minorAm                                A chord diagramDmDm
At last the fight was over, young Davey fought no more,
   A chord diagramG+G                         A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramE7E7
He lost the final battle behind a doctor's door.
    A chord diagramA minorAm                     A chord diagramDmDm
And back at the arena, the screaming crowd is gone,
    A chord diagramG+G                                  A chord diagramC majorC                  A chord diagramE7E7
And death is waiting ringside, for the next fight to come on.


Chorus:

         A chord diagramA minorAm                              A chord diagramG+G
Hang his gloves upon the wall, shine his trophies bright clear,
        A chord diagramDmDm               A chord diagramE7E7
Another man will fall before we dry our tears
         A chord diagramA minorAm                              A chord diagramG+G
For the fighters must destroy as the poets must sing,
        A chord diagramDmDm                              A chord diagramE7E7
As the hungry crowd must gather for the blood upon the ring.
