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

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


Chorus

C          F
And away, Santy
F        C
My dear Annie
C       F                F                   C
Oh, you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?

Verse 2

C                  F
And when we got to Barrack Street,
    F               C
we stopped at forty-four
    Am              F
Her mother and her sister
  F                 C
were waiting at the door

Verse 3

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


Chorus

C          F
And away, Santy
F        C
My dear Annie

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


Verse 4

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


Chorus

C          F
And away, Santy
F        C
My dear Annie
C       F                F                   C
Oh, you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?

Verse 5

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


Chorus

C          F
And away, Santy
F        C
My dear Annie
C       F                F                   C
Oh, you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?
C          F
And away, Santy
F        C
My dear Annie
C       F                F                   C
Oh, you New York girls, can't you dance the polka?
