Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
One of Scotty's newer ones. Check it out on his Ning page - 
http://scottklopfenstein.ning.com/. It's a belter. 

Verse:
      A              D
Oh, I packed up suit cases,
        F#m              E
One for clothes one for dreams,
           A         D             F#m            E
And on the five hour flight I made my fool proof schemes,
         D           E         C#m           F#m
That I'd eat the big apple not choke on the seeds,
    D             E            F#m    -> E -> D
and they'd name a street after me,
     D            E           A     E
but this was not destined to be,

             A              D               F#m         E
'Cause every actor, model, musician, in the food industry,
           A         D           F#m         E
Smiles for tips to afford their 300 square feet,
           D         E               C#m            F#m 
and at the end of auditions all they hear is "next please",
      D          E              F#m   -> E -> D
So at night they drop to their knees,
 D            E          A
"God can you still hear me?",

Chorus:
Bm         G                      D
So welcome to New York aren't you lonely now?,
Bm        G              D             F#
Even your God's lost you in the crowd, amongst the sound,
Bm               F#           G                  D
Of eight million people who's hearts make man's choir,
       G                Bm           F#
Hoping hearts can reach higher then man can build,


       A             D
On the sidewalks and subways,
      Bm             E
Where dreams are for sale,
         A            D               F#m                 E
Live the giant sized, judging eyes of those who've yet to fail,
        D         E
Staring into the faces,
       C#m          F#m
Behind open guitar cases,
D            E            F#m  -> E -> D
Belting just so they can hear,
         D              E               A
Past the ringing of the city in their ears,

Chorus:
Bm         G                      D
So welcome to New York aren't you lonely now?,
Bm        G              D             F#
Even your God's lost you in the crowd, amongst the sound,
Bm               F#           G                  D
Of eight million people who's hearts make man's choir,
       G                Bm           F#
Hoping hearts can reach higher then man can build,

[Guitar Solo]

The Chorus is then repeated twice, with a key change up for each. So the first 
repetition follows the progression: 

C#m        A               E etc. 
So welcome to New York. . .

The second repetition follows the progression: 

D#m,    B,               F# etc.
So..., to..., New..., lonely now. . .

Enjoy.
