New York City Serenade  Bruce Springsteen

Bi[A]lly, h[F#m]e's down by the ra[Bm7]ilroad tr[Asus]ack, sittin' l[A]ow in the b[F#m]ack seat of his Cad[Bm7]illac,[Asus]
[A]Diamond Ja[F#m]ckie, she's s[Bm7]o intact, [Asus]as she fal[A]ls so s[F#m]oftly ben[Bm7]eath him, [Asus]
Jackie's h[Bm7]eels are stacked, Billy's got cl[F#m7]eats on his boots,
Together they're gonna bo[Bm7]ogaloo down Broadway and come back h[F#m7]ome with the loot,
It's mi[Bm7]dnight in Manhattan, this is no t[D]ime to get cute, it's a mad d[Esus]og's promenade,[E]
So walk t[A]all[F#m],   [Bm7]  or better d[Asus]on't walk at all. [A]  [F#m7]     [Bm7]    [Asus]
Fish [A]lady, [F#m]fish lady, fish lady she [Bm]baits them tenement walls,[D]
She won't ta[A]ke cornerboys, ain't got no [F#m]money, and they're [Bm]so easy,[D]
I said, "Hey [A]baby won't you take my hand, [F#m]walk me down Broadway,[Bm]    [D]
I'm a [A]young man and I talk real loud, [F#m]yeah, baby walk real proud for [Bm]you.
[D]So shake it away, so shake [A]away your street life, shake away your [F#m]city life,
And [Bm]hook up to the train, [D]hook up to the night train, [A]hook it [F#m]up hook up to the[Bm], hook up to the train,[D]
But I know that she w[Bm]on't take the train, no she w[F#m]on't take the train,
No she w[Bm]on't take the train, no she w[F#m]on't take the train
No she w[Bm]on't take the train, no she w[F#m]on't take the train
No she w[Bm]on't take the train, no she w[F#m]on't take the train
She's af[D]raid them tracks are gonna slow her down,
And when she t[Esus]urns this boy'll be g[E]one
So lo[A]ng, so[F#m]metimes you just gotta [Bm7]walk on.[Asus]      [A]  [F#m]    [Bm7]    [Asus]
Hey v[A]ibes man, hey jazz [F#m]man play [Bm7]me your serenade [Asus]
[A]Any deeper b[F#m]lue and you're playin' in your g[Bm7]rave   [Asus]
Save your [Bm7]notes, don't spend 'em on the b[F#m7]lues boy,
Save your [Bm7]notes, don't spend 'em on the dar[F#m7]lin' yearlin' sharp boy,
Straight fo[Bm7]r the church note ringin', vibes man sting a t[D]rash can
Listen to[Esus] your junk man,[E] listen to your junk man,
Listen to your junk man, listen to your junk man,
He's sin[A]gin' (s[F#m]ingin'), He’s[Bm7] singin' (si[Asus]ngin'), He’s si[A]ngin' [F#m]
All dressed u[Bm7]p in satin, walkin' down the al[Asus]ley.
A F#m Bm7 Asus .....repeat fo fade out
He’s singin', singin’, singin’, singin’,

Watch out for you junk man, watch out for your junk man,

Watch out for your junk man.
