New York City Serenade - Bruce Springsteen

Intro: A F#m Bm7 A

  A     F#m               Bm7      Asus          A          F#m                Bm7   Asus
Billy, he's down by the railroad track, sittin' low in the back seat of his Cadillac,
A         F#m          Bm7       Asus      A      F#m      Bm7       Asus
Diamond Jackie, she's so intact, as she falls so softly beneath him,
          Bm7                             F#m7
Jackie's heels are stacked, Billy's got cleats on his boots,
                         Bm7                                 F#m7
Together they're gonna boogaloo down Broadway and come back home with the loot,
       Bm7                              D                            Esus           E
It's midnight in Manhattan, this is no time to get cute, it's a mad dog's promenade,
         A  F#m Bm7          Asus              A F#m7 Bm7 Asus
So walk tall,     or better don't walk at all.



     A     F#m                      Bm                        D 
Fish lady, fish lady, fish lady she baits them tenement walls,
            A                           F#m                Bm      D
She won't take cornerboys, ain't got no money, and they're so easy,
             A                            F#m                   Bm  D
I said, "Hey baby won't you take my hand, walk me down Broadway,
      A                               F#m                            Bm
I'm a young man and I talk real loud, yeah, baby walk real proud for you.
D                          A                                      F#m
So shake it away, so shake away your street life, shake away your city life,
    Bm                    D                           A       F#m              Bm                     D
And hook up to the train, hook up to the night train, hook it up hook up to the, hook up to the train,



                     Bm                           F#m
But I know that she won't take the train, no she won't take the train,
        Bm                           F#m
No she won't take the train, no she won't take the train
        Bm                           F#m
No she won't take the train, no she won't take the train
        Bm                           F#m
No she won't take the train, no she won't take the train
        D
She's afraid them tracks are gonna slow her down,
              Esus                 E
And when she turns this boy'll be gone
     A     F#m                    Bm7     Asus  A F#m Bm7 Asus
So long, sometimes you just gotta walk on.



     A                  F#m      Bm7              Asus
Hey vibes man, hey jazz man play me your serenade
A           F#m                             Bm7    Asus
Any deeper blue and you're playin' in your grave
          Bm7                            F#m7
Save your notes, don't spend 'em on the blues boy,
          Bm7                              F#m7
Save your notes, don't spend 'em on the darlin' yearlin' sharp boy,
           Bm7                                           D
Straight for the church note ringin', vibes man sting a trash can
         Esus           E
Listen to your junk man, listen to your junk man,

Listen to your junk man, listen to your junk man,
        A      F#m          Bm7         Asus           A     F#m
He's singin' (singin'), He’s singin' (singin'), He’s singin'
             Bm7                            Asus
All dressed up in satin, walkin' down the alley.
       A       F#m      Bm7       Asus .....repeat fo fade out
He’s singin', singin’, singin’, singin’,

Watch out for you junk man, watch out for your junk man,

Watch out for your junk man.
