New York City, look at me now..
F   C                      G        C
I'm being stared at from behind the plow.

#1.
C      F        C        F          C         F
Didn't want the mayor to come..or a big brass band 
   C        F G
to greet me.
C   F          C         F             C 
But then the reception I got..well, it wasn't what I 
F      G
had in mind.
F              G      F                G
People gawkin' at me, like I'm talkin' strange.
F                G                              C
Me, I ain't much better..cause I'm thinkin' the same.
F    G
Hey, boy!

CHORUS:
F        C     G          C
New York City, look at me now..
F   C                      G        C
I'm being stared at from behind the plow.
F        C     G         C
Mississ..ippi, don't get annoyed..

#2.
C      F         C         F      C          F       C       F G
Sayin' y'all and eatin' on grits..talkin' as slow as molasses.
C           F          C           F           C 
And all the time, just pointing at me..and the hair growin' 
F       G
over my ears.

BRIDGE:
F               G          F                          G
Gets my mind to wonderin', just who's right and who's wrong.
  F                                G        
I guess if they'll get used to the sideburns, I'll get used 
       C     F    G
to the corn. Hey, boy!

CHORUS:
F        C     G          C
New York City, look at me now..
F   C                      G        C
I'm being stared at from behind the plow.
F        C     G         C
Mississ..ippi, don't get annoyed..
F          C              G        C
I ain't no hippie, just a New York boy.

I'm being stared at from behind the plow.

Mississ..ippi, don't get annoyed..
