New York City Song  John Cafferty

    [G]I said, hey little girl
Take me by the hand
Walk with me down this boardwalk
One last time again
    [C9]We're gonna see those pretty pier lights
    Hear those carnival so[G]unds
    Well we'll s[D]top right at the top tonight
    [C9]As this ferris wheel goes roun[G]d

    [G]Now you say that I'm wrestless
You don't understand
Tomorrow I'll be leavin' on that mornin' train
    I'm gonna le[C9]ave this candy apple town behind
    And get out while I still ca[G]n
    I'm goin to [D]New York Ci[Dsus]ty       [C9]
    With this guitar in my [G]hand


    And I've been wishin' on these [C9]stars too long
    And I've been playing in these [G]bars too long
    I've been hold up in [C9]your arms too long
    I've been a prisoner of my [G]heart too long
    I'm goin to N[C9]ew York City
    To find out where I sta[G]nd
    And I'll be wa[D]lking down Broadway
    [C9]With this guitar in my h[G]and
** Guitar Solo ** (Pick down and up through G, C9 and D chords - listen to the song to get the feel)

    [G]Now I sing for these tourists
Bout' a dream life on the water
But when that dream gets broken
This life gets harder and harder
    I go[C9]tta leave this candy apple town behind
    And get out while I still can [G]
    I'm goin' [D]to New York Cit[Dsus]y     [C9]
    With this guitar in my [G]hand

    [G]And I've been wishin' on these s[C9]tars too long
    And I've been playing in these [G]bars too long
    I've been hold up in [C9]your arms too long
    I've been a prisoner of my [G]heart too long

    I'm goin to [C9]New York City
    To find out where I sta[G]nd
    And I'll be wa[D]lking down Broadway[Dsus]
    [C9]With this guitar in my h[G]and
    And I'll be wal[D]king down Broadway [Dsus]
    [C9]With this guitar in my h[G]and
