For other uses of “The Boxer” see Boxer (disambiguation) “The Boxer” is a folk rock ballad written by Paul Simon in 1968 and first recorded by Simon & Garfunkel. It was released as the follow up single to their number one hit “Mrs. Robinson”, and reached #7 in the US charts. It later appeared on their last studio album, Bridge Over Troubled Water, along with its B-side “Baby Driver”. It is particularly known for its plaintive refrain, in which the singer sings the tune as ‘lie-la-lie’, and the memorable finger-picking guitar played by guitarist Fred Carter, Jr.. Rolling Stone ranked the song #105 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Read on...
