                 New York City SONG (N.Y.C. SONG)
                         JOHN CAFFFERTY
    *F/G
    Said, hey little girl
    Take me by the hand
    Walk with me down this boardwalk
    One last time again
         Bb
    Well see those pretty pier lights
                          F/G
    Hear those carnival sounds
                Bb
    Well we'll stop right at the top tonight
   C                            F/G
    When the ferris wheel goes round


    F/G
    And I sang for these tourists
    And dreamed life on the water
    When the dream it gets broken
    'Cause life it gets harder and harder
   Bb
    Leave this candy apple town behind
                          F/G
    Get out while I still can
              Bb
    Going to New York City
   C                       F/G
    With this guitar in my hand

                       Bb
    And wishing these stars too long
                     F/G
    Playing in these bars too long
                         Bb
    And hold up in your arms too long
                                F/G
    Been a prisoner of my heart too long


             Bb
    Going to New York City
                          F/G
    And find out where I stand
                  C
    And I'll be walking down Broadway
   Bb                      F/G
    With this guitar in my hand

    NOTE: *F/G  is played like this [x x 3 2 1 3]


    NOTE: The words and chords were taken directly from the
          VHS movie "EDDIE AND THE CRUISERS II - EDDIE LIVES".
          I noticed that on the soundtrack the N.Y.C. Song
          (Cafferty) - 5:07 is a lot longer..............

Unfortunately or fortunately whatever way you want to look at it ... this version is the one that is used in the movie.... It is NOT the version made by John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band off their album. That version is a little over 5 minutes long and is in a different key... Also, that version uses some other lyrics as well.

Here is that version of the song

If you play this version then the chords above work perfectly.

I redid this tab and have added that one to go along with the album version... It is in a different key and tabbed correctly....

You are correct in what you have stated. I checked and there are really two versions of this song as you stated.
