(riff 1) C                                   G
        Come see the vampires of New York, a-ah
(riff 1) C                                      G
        Come lose your mind in Central Park, a-ah
                                    C       G
        But don't leave your soul behind, a-ah

(riff 1) C                                    G  
        Come take in 8th street after dark, a-ah
(riff 1) C                                    G
        Such peculiar people you'll remark, a-ah
                                C       G 
        You might even see a murder, a-ah

    F                  G  
And all the whores on Bleecker Street
They wear the blissful grin
  F             G  
Caused by the drugs they take
     C                            G
To relieve them of their sins, ah-oh

           C  Am               G   
And "Oh-oh lord I think she's dying"
                  C  Am              G
I heard somebody say, I think she's dying
             C Am              G 
And "Oh, oh lord I think she's dying"

(riff 1) C            
        Or, maybe she's already dead
and maybe she's gone to Mars.
Maybe we could even write her epitaph
in the stars.
          C          G
It'd say "If you go away from here...
C            G 
if you go a million miles..."
F    C   G
Come downtown
   F   C    G
to see them go

(riff 1)  C                                 G
Into the den of the vampires of New York ha-hah
But please watch your step as you're 
getting off kids.

That F looks more like a Bbm

Yeah the chord says Bbm, but it's never written in the tab, he just says F
