New York City  They Might Be Giants



















You [E]called me last [E]night [A]on the tele[B]phone, and
[E]I was glad to [E]hear from you \'cause [A]I was all a[B]lone, you said \"It\'s
[E]snowing, it\'s [E]snowing! [A]God, I hate this [B]weather.\"
[E]Now I walk through [E]blizzards just to [A]get us [B]back to[E]gether   [E]

We met in the springtime at a rock-and-roll show
It was on the Bowery when it was time to go
We kissed on the subway in the middle of the night
I held your hand, you held mine, it was the best night of my life.

Chorus:
\'Cause [E]everyone\'s your [B]friend in [A]New York [B]City
And [E]everything looks [C#m]beautiful [A]when you\'re young and [B]pretty
The [A]streets are paved with [B]diamonds and there\'s [E]just so much to [A]see
        [A]                [B]                 [B]tacet
But the best thing about New York City is... you and
[E]me    [E]      [A]      [B]

Verse 3:
Statue of Liberty, Staten Island Ferry, Co-op City, Katz\'s and
Tiffany\'s
Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, The Empire State where Dylan lived
Coney Island and Times Square, Rockefeller Center
Wish I was there

You wrote me a letter just the other day
Said, \"Springtime is coming soon so why don\'t you come to stay.\"
I packed my stuff, got on the bus, I can\'t believe it\'s true
I\'m three days from New York City and I\'m three days from you

Solo:

Chorus:
\'Cause everyone\'s your friend in New York City
And everything looks beautiful when you\'re young and pretty
The streets are paved with diamonds and there\'s just so much to see
But the best thing about New York City is
you and me
\'Cause everyone\'s your friend in New York City
And everything looks beautiful when you\'re young and pretty
The streets are paved with diamonds and there\'s just so much to see
But the best thing about New York City is
you and me

Outro: ( Solo throughout )
