           C              F           G            C   
Come you ladies and you gentlemen, a-listen to my song
                 F             G                C
Sing it to you right, but you might think it’s wrong
               F            G          C
Just a little glimpse of a story I’ll tell
                     F             G        C
’Bout an East Coast city that you all know well
                            F
It’s hard times in the country
  G                      C
Livin’ down in New York town

    C         F          G           C   
Old New York City is a friendly old town
                  F          G        C
From Washington Heights to Harlem on down
                       F           G           C    
There’s a-mighty many people all millin’ all around
                                     F                     C
They’ll kick you when you’re up and knock you when you’re down
                            F
It’s hard times in the country
  G                      C
Livin’ down in New York town

         C          F              G      C 
It’s a mighty long ways from the Golden Gate
                 F            G      C 
To Rockefeller Plaza ’n’ the Empire State.
        F                 G         C
Mister Empire sets up as high as a bird
                         F           C
Old Mister Rockefeller never says a word
                              F   
It’s hard times from the country
  G                      C 
Livin’ down in New York town

           C           F                 G            C 
Well, it’s up in the mornin’ tryin’ to find a job of work
               F              G             C
Stand in one place till your feet begin to hurt
                      F            G             C
If you got a lot o’ money you can make yourself merry
                    F               G             C
If you only got a nickel, it’s the Staten Island Ferry
                                F
And it’s hard times in the country
  G                      C
Livin’ down in New York town

         C      F      G                C
Mister Hudson come a-sailin’ down the stream
                  F     G            C
And old Mister Minuet paid for his dream
             F         G        C
Bought your city on a one-way track
                     F             C
’F I had my way I’d sell it right back
                                F
And it’s hard times in the country
 G                       C
Livin’ down in New York town

      C            F        G          C
I’ll take all the smog in Cal-i-for-ne-ay
                  F             G       C
’N’ every bit of dust in the Oklahoma plains
                     F            G              C
’N’ the dirt in the caves of the Rocky Mountain mines
                 F              G        C
It’s all much cleaner than the New York kind
                                F
And it’s hard times in the country
  G                      C
Livin’ down in New York town

    C              F       G               C
So all you newsy people, spread the news around
                       F       G          C
You c’n listen to m’ story, listen to m’ song
                    F             G              C
You c’n step on my name, you c’n try ’n’ get me beat
                                 F             C
When I leave New York, I’ll be standin’ on my feet
                                F
And it’s hard times in the country
  G                       C  F  G  C
Livin’ down in New York town
