 Verse 1:

       Em                     D
   The days were long and the night so cold,
       A/C#               C
   The pages turn and the tale unfolds,
      Em           D         A/C#      C
   He left me for,   another lady.

 Verse 2:

       Em                    D
   She stood so tall and she never slept,
             A/C#              C
   There was not one moment he could regret,
      Em           D         A/C#     C
   He left me for,   another lady.


 Pre-Chorus 1:

 C            G                        B7
   He took my hand one day and told me,
                  Em          Em7
   He was leaving,    Me disbelieving.
       C             G
   And I, I, I, I,   I, I, I, I,
   B7             Em   Em7
   Had to let him go.


 Chorus 1:

                C             G
   Her name was New York, New York,
            B7*           Em        Em7
   And she took his heart away from mine,
                C             G
   Her name was New York, New York,
           B7*                Em     Em7
   She had poisoned his sweet mind,
 C                   Cm
   Mm .. mm .. mmmm.


 Verse 3:

       Em                   D
   The wolves they howl for my lost soul,
   A/C#          C
   I fell down a deep black hole,
      Em           D         A/C#      C
   He left me for,   another lady,
       Em                        D
   She poured the drinks and she poured the power,
   A/C#                   C
   Diamond girl who could talk for hours,
      Em           D         A/C#      C
   He left me for,   another lady.


 Pre-Chorus 2:

 C          G                     B7
   Now I am on my own, he told me
                   Em           Em7
   He was leaving,    and I was pleading
       C             G
   And I, I, I, I,   I, I, I, I,
   B7             Em   Em7
   Had to let him go.


 Chorus 2:

                C             G
   Her name was New York, New York,
            B7*           Em        Em7
   And she took his heart away from mine,
                C             G
   Her name was New York, New York,
           B7*                Em     Em7
   She had poisoned his sweet mind.


 Bridge:

       C                 Am
   The greatest times, I don't want to hear it,
        Em                  D
   Your new life tonight, I don't want to hear it,
       C                         Am
   The newfound friends she introduced you to,
     Em                              D
   I don't want to know them I just wanna be with you,
   C                    A/C#
   Please don't make me go to,


 Chorus 3:

   C                         G
   New York___________,  New York,
       B7*              Em       Em7
   She took your heart away from mine,
                C             G
   Her name was New York, New York,
       B7*                 Em     Em7
   She poisoned your sweet mind,
                C             G
   Her name was New York, New York,
       B7*              Em       Em7
   She took your heart away from mine,
                C             G
   Her name was New York, New York,
       B7*                 Em     Em7
   She poisoned your sweet mind,
       C                   Cm
   She poisoned your sweet mind.

There's a few notes/chords omitted that are on the actual recording but this is just so 
to over-complicate it.
