[Intro]

Em


[Verse 1]

 Em
The morning came today,
                   Am
With rain and sheets of grey,
                Em
The subway rocked me out of bed,
                C        Em
To take me on my way.
G                Bm
Where’er I go I go in style,
                    Em
Each and every mile,
                   C               D
You know, I’m not alone,
                    G           C       G
New York is my home.


[Verse 2]

           Em
I got a girl up in the Bronx,
                   Am
She treats me like a king,
                   Em
I’ll give her anything she wants,
                C   Em
She is my everything.
           G               Bm
She can be hard as concrete,
                         Em
Soft as a summer breeze,
          C                     D
We can wake the dark,
                    G
New York is my home.


[Chorus 1]

C
New York is calling me,
                 G
It’s on the phone,
                   Am7
It’s like the rooftop songs,
                 D7
Up from the cobblestones.
(Stop strumming)


[Verse 3]

                    Em
You will never hear me say,
                Am
“The city street’s too loud,”
            Em
I hear a gospel hymn
            C            Em
In every passing crowd.
   G                        Bm
It trails me and it tails me down,
   Em
To central park,
        C               D
Even after dark,
                    G           C G
New York is my home.


[Chorus 2]

C
New York is calling me,
                G
And now I find,
            Am7
The city never sleeps,
           D7
It’s my state of mind.


[Verse 4]

    Em
The breezes blow,
                                 Am
And take me where the Hudson never flows,
                 Em
The harbour light shines on the piers,
                  C         Am7
As all young lovers know.
         G              Bm
I can touch the world,
                            Em
As it sails in from everywhere,
           C            D
I’m not alone,
                    G           C       G
New York is my home.


[Chorus 3]

C
New York is calling me,
                G
And now I find,
            Am7
The city never sleeps,
           D7            G        C G C D7
It’s my state of mind.


[Verse 5]

    Em
The breezes blow,
                                 Am
And take me where the Hudson never flows,
                 Em
The harbour light shines on the piers,
                  C         Am7
As all young lovers know.
         G              Bm
I can touch the world,
                            Em
As it sails in from everywhere,
           C            D
I’m not alone,
                    G
New York is my home.
           C            D
I’m not alone,
            Em
New York is my home.


[Outro]

G C D7 Em
