[Verse 1]
G             D/A                   E
New York city spread herself before you
         C               G                D        G
With her bangles and her spangles and her stars
         D/A                 E
You were impressed, with the city so undressed
    C             D                 G
You had to go out cruising all the bars

[Verse 2]
     G             D/A                      E
Your business trip extended through the weekend
  C          G                   D
Suburban boy here for your first time
         G       D/A E
From the 27th floor, above the midtown roar
         C                D               G
You were startled, by her beauty, and her crime

[Chorus]
          Dm                                Cmaj7
And she's every girl you've seen in every movie
      Dm                              Cmaj7
She's every dame you've ever known on late night TV
       Em        Baug         G/B        Em/C#    Cmaj7
In her steam and steel is the passion you feel
      B7
Endlessly

[Refrain]
G             D/A          E
New York is a woman she'll make you cry
C                 D/A              G
And to her you're just another guy

[Verse 3]
G             D/A               E
Look down and see her ruined places
C                   G             D
Smoke and ash still rising to the sky
      G                 D/A      E
She's happy that you're here but when you disappear
    C                      D                   G
She won't know that you're gone to say goodbye

[Instrumental]
Dm Cmaj7 Dm Cmaj7
Em Baug G/B Em/C# Cmaj7 B7

[Refrain]
G             D/A          E
New York is a woman she'll make you cry
C                 D                G
And to her you're just another guy

[Chorus]
          Dm                                Cmaj7
And she's every girl you've seen in every movie
      Dm                              Cmaj7
She's every dame you've ever known on late night TV
       Em        Baug         G/B        Em/C#    Cmaj7
In her steam and steel is the passion you feel
      B7
Desperately

[Refrain]
G             D/A          E
New York is a woman she'll make you cry
C                 D                G
And to her you're just another guy
