Artist: Bellowhead
Song: New York Girls
Album: Hedonism (2010)

Tabbed by Bryn Portas, aka, Stud_Muffin

An absolutely cracking song, by one of the most talented and entertaining bands around
today, I hope you enjoy strumming along with the song, and to make it sound better
unaccompanied, I have included the chords that I use in DADGAD tuning, to add more 
ringing open strings.

Any comments or rates are welcomed, and feel free to use my tab as a basis to work out
your own. So here it is, Bellowhead's version of New York Girls, ENJOY!!!

Verse

D                 G
As I walked down to New York town,
A                 D
A fair maid I did meet
Bm                   G
She asked me back to see her place
A                     D
She lived on Barrack Street


Chorus

D          G
And away, Santy
A        D
My dear Annie
D       G                A                   D
Oh, you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?

And when we got to Barrack Street,
    A               D
we stopped at forty-four
    Bm              G
Her mother and her sister
  A                 D
were waiting at the door



Chorus

D          G
And away, Santy

My dear Annie

Verse 3

D              G
And when I got inside the house,
    A                  D
the drinks were passed around
    Bm             G
The liquor was so awful strong,
   A                    D
my head went round and round
    D            G
And then we had another drink
A                D
before we sat to eat
  Bm              G
The liquor was so awful strong,
  A              D
I quickly fell asleep


Chorus

D          G
And away, Santy
A        D
My dear Annie

Oh, you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?


Verse 4

    D             G
When I awoke next morning,
  A             D
I had an aching head
    Bm                G
And there was I Jack all alone,
     A            D
stark naked in me bed
   D                  G
My gold watch and my money
     A                  D
and my lady friend were gone
    Bm                   G
And there was I Jack all alone,
      A              D
stark naked in the room

And away, Santy
A        D
My dear Annie

Oh, you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?

Verse 5

  D                    G
Oh looking round that little room,
        A                D
there's nothing I could see
      Bm                G
But a woman's shift and apron
     A              D
that were no use to me
      D             G
With a barrel for a suit of clothes,
     A             D
down Cherry Street forlorn
      Bm                G
Where Martin Churchill took me in
       A                  D
and he sent me round Cape Horn
   D                 G                 A                D
So sailor lads, take warning when you land on New York shore
        Bm            G            A             D (stop)
You'll have to get up early to be smarter than a whore


Chorus

D          G
And away, Santy
A        D
My dear Annie
D       G                A                   D
Oh, you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?
D          G
And away, Santy
A        D
My dear Annie
D       G                A                   D
Oh, you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?
