Verse 1:
    A*                           D*
Now let me tell you a story of a big ole' skinhead 
     A*                 E*
On a tragic and fateful day 
       A*                                D*
He put 10 cents in his pocket kicked his wife and family 
            A           E     A
And went to ride on the M.B.T.A

Chorus:
       A                   D                       A                E
Did he ever return? No, he never returned, and his fate is still unknown
        A                       D
He will ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston
         A            E       A
He's the skinhead who never returned...

Verse 2:
    A*                    D*
Skinhead goes down to the Kendall Sq. Station 
       A*                   E*
And he changes for Jamaica Plain, 
    A*                        D*
The conductor says skinhead I need a nickel, 
         A           E      A
Skinhead punches him in the brain 

Chorus x1

Verse 3:
    A*                      D*        
Now all night long skinhead drives through the station 
         A*                E*
Thinking what can I go and see 
      A*                     D*           A         E     A
Can't afford to buy crack in Chelsea or a bundle in Roxbury

Chorus x1

Verse 4:
    A                      (D)
Skinhead's wife goes to the Scully Square Station 
    (A)                 (E)
Everyday at quarter past two, 
   (A)                                             (D)   
And through the open window she hands skinhead a grenade 
      (A)           (E)      (A)
As the train comes a rumbling through

Chorus x1

Verse 5:
       (A)                          (D)
Now you citizens of Boston don't you think its a scandal 
       (A)                 E
How the skinhead stole the train? 
           A                       D
What's the big ****in' deal, he'll work for beer 
        A        E         A
Let the skinhead drive the train

Chorus x2

A             E       A
Skinhead that never returned x3
