Key: E Capo 2 (D) D G D A7 G D I was born and raised in Bos-ton, a place you all know well, G A7 D Bm G A A7 Brought up by honest par-ents, the truth to you I'll tell. D G D A7 G D Brought up by honest par-ents, and raised most tenderly, G A7 D Bm G A7 D Till I became a sporting lad, at the age of twenty three. D G D A7 G D My character was ta-ken, and I was sent to jail, G A7 D Bm G A A7 My friends they came and tried in vain, to get me out on bail. D G D A7 G D The jury found me guil-ty, the clerk he wrote it down, G A7 D Bm G A7 D The judge he passed my sentence and I was sent to Charlestown. D G D A7 G D They placed me on an east bound train, one cold December day, G A7 D Bm G A A7 And at every station we passed through, you could hear the people say. D G D A7 G D "There goes the Boston bur-glar in cold chains he is bound, G A7 D Bm G A7 D For one crime or another he is bound for Charlestown". Instrumental: G A7 D G A7 D D G D A7 D Now you that have your freedom, take warning if you can, G A7 D Bm G A A7 Don't go around the streets at night, breaking laws of God and man. D G D A7 G D For if you do you're sure to rue, and find yourself like me, G A7 D Bm G A7 D Serving up twen-ty three years, in the Pena-ten-tury.
