jim croce: new york's not for me

[Intro] A Amaj7 A7 F# Bm Fm A *(notes)

A            Amaj7             A7           F#
  things are spinning round me   and all my thoughts were cloudy
Bm          Fm                     A                   *(notes)
  and i had begun to doubt all the things that were me
A             Amaj7       A7                  F#
  being in so many places   you know i've run so many races
Bm                     Fm                 A
  i've looked into the empty faces of the people of the night
F#m                                A                       F#m
  something is  just not right      cause i know that i've got
                       A       F#m      A                     F#m
  to get out of here    i'm so alone    don't you know that i got
                             Bm__                    (A  A/D A  A7)
  to get out of here   cause new york's not my home
A                Amaj7               A7                  F#
  though all the streets are crowded   there's something strange
              Bm                       Fm                    A
  about it    i've lived there about a year and i never once felt
         *(notes)  A            Amaj7             A7
  at home           i thought i made the big time   i learned a lot
                     F#                 Bm
  of lessons off the quick and know i'm telling you that they were
  Fm                  A                        F#m
  not the nice kind    it's been so long since i have felt fine
A                             F#m                     A       F#m
  that's the reason that i've got to get out of here   i'm so alone
A                       F#m
  don't you know that i got to get out of here
        Bm__
  cause new york's not my home

A                             F#m                     A       F#m
  that's the reason that i've got to get out of here   i'm so alone
A                       F#m
  don't you know that i got to get out of here

It's E, not Fm.

After a solid twenty minutes I think I've finally solved the chord in the intro/verse progression. Instead of A Amaj7 A7 F# Bm Fm A, try replacing the Fm with a Fdim7. I found this to sound spot on! Also the background chord at the end of the riff [*(notes)] is an E.
