Key: B
Intro:  G#m  F#  C#/E#  Emaj7   x2
    G#m                     F#
The days were long and the night so cold
    C#/E#               E
The pages turn and the tale unfolds
   G#m         F#        C#/E#      E
He left me for   another lady
    G#m                   F#
She stood so tall and she never slept
          C#/E#             E
There was not one moment he could regret
   G#m         F#        C#/E#      E
He left me for   another lady
E           B                      D#
 He took my hand one day and told me
        D#/G
 He was leaving
G#m       F#
  Me disbelieving
    E             B
And I, I, I, I,   I, I, I, I
D#     D#/G    G#m   F#
Had to let him go

CHORUS:
             E         B
Her name was New York, New York and she
D#       D#/G   G#m      F#
Took his heart away from mine
             E         B
Her name was New York, New York and she
        D#       D#/G      G#m      F#              E2      Em6
She had poisoned his sweet mind.        Mm .. mm .. mmmm

    G#m                  F#        

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

E         B
 Now I am on my own
           D# 
He told me
       D#/G   
He was leaving
G#m        F#
 And I was pleading
    E             B
And I, I, I, I,   I, I, I, I
D#     D#/G    G#m   F#
Had to let him go

CHORUS

    E
The greatest times
  C#m           C#m7
I don't want to hear it
     G#m
Your new life tonight
  F#
I don't want to hear it
    E
The newfound friends
         C#m       C#m7
She introduced you to
  G#m
I don't want to know them
       F#
I just want to be with you
E                    C#/F
Please don't make me go to
1      2     3    4  1  2  3  4

New York                    New York
1   2   3   4   1   2   3   4   1
    D#        D#/G   G#m      F#
She took your heart away from mine
             E         B
Her name was New York, New York
    D#       D#/G       G#m      F#
She poisoned your sweet mind

             E         B
Her name was New York, New York
    D#        D#/G   G#m      F#
She took your heart away from mine
             E         B
Her name was New York, New York
    D#       D#/G       G#m      F#
She poisoned your sweet mind
    E                   Em6....
She poisoned your sweet mind...

Thanks a lot Phil, I would give you for this 4+ cause I got a small corrections. Check these chords:

       E        B
And I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Eb G G#m F#
Had to let him go


It isnt G, G#m and F#... where are they from???

Maybe something else small, but this was very useful tab for me!
Thanks a lot!!!

Yeah, my guitarist and I have been arguing over this one. the arrangements are so lush that it is hard to assign a chord to some parts. I play bass and just play Eb,G#,F#. the other bit which I am not happy with is the transition into E in the last chorus. I'll update this when I have it completely nailed. Thanks for the comments it is a great song.
