Original author: Aron Radford (Ultimate Guitar version 2)
Formatting / Chord Timing / Fixed Lyrics / Strum Pattern: Wheezy E

This version is very similar to version 2, but I wanted to format this tab to make the timing more obvious 
for the fast-paced lyrics.  Note: I've written Houston St phonetically as "Howsten Street" since it's a 
non-standard pronunciation for that street name in New York ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houston_Street ).

[Intro]
G   C/G         C/G   G
G   C/G         C/G   G


[Verse 1]
 Well I
   G                              C/G                             
   shuffled through the city on a Fourth of July, I had a
   C/G                    G
   firecracker waitin' to blow.
   G                              C/G
   Breakin' like a robber who was makin' his way to the
   C/G            G
   cities of Mexico.
   G                            C/G
   Lived in an apartment out on Avenue A. Had a
   C/G                      G
   tar-hut on the corner of Tenth.
   G                          C/G
   Had myself a lover who was finer than gold, but I been
   C/G                     G
   broken up and busted up since
    
[Chorus 1]
            D          G         D          G
            Love don't play, any games with me
               C
            anymore like she did before.
            D           G         D       G
        The world won't wait, so I better shake
                 C
            That thing right-out-there through-the door,
            C               D              G
              Hell, I still love you, New York
            G   C/G         C/G   G
            G   C/G         C/G   G

[Verse 2]
   G                                 C/G
   Found myself a picture that would fit in the folds of my
   C/G                         G
   wallet and it stayed pretty good. Still-a
   G                             C/G
   mazed I didn't lose it on the roof of the place when I was
   C/G                         G
   drunk and I was thinking of you.
   G                                C/G
   Every day the children they were singing their tunes out on the
   C/G                               G
   streets and you could hear from inside.
   G                             C/G
   Used to take the subway up to Howsten and Third. I would
   C/G                         G
   wait for you and not try to hide.

[Chorus 2]
            D          G        D          G
      (And) love won't play any games with you
           C
        anymore if you don't want 'em to.
            D           G       D           G
      (The) world won't wait, I watched you shake.
            C
        But honey I don't blame       you.
            C               D             G
              Hell, I still love you New York
            G   C/G         C/G   G
            G   C/G         C/G   G
            C               D             G
              Hell, I still love you New York
            G   C/G        C/G   G
            G   C/G        C/G   G
                   New York

[Verse 3]
    G                           C/G
    I remember Christmas in the blistering cold in a
    C/G                           G
    chu-----rch on the Upper West Side
    G                                 C/G
    Babe, I stood there singing I was holding your arm. You were
    C/G                     G
    holding my trust like a child
    G                             C/G
    Found a lot of trouble out on Avenue B, but I
    C/G                        G
    tried to keep the overhead low
    G                            C/G
    Farewell to the city and the love of my life as we
    C/G                    G
    lived before we had to go.

[Chorus 3]
            D          G        D          G
        And love won't play any games with you
           C
        Anymore if you don't want 'em to
           D         G              D             G
        So-we better shake this-old thing-out the-door
             C
        I'll always be thinking of you
                  C         D
                   I'll always love you though New ...
         G   C    C         G
        York       I'll always love you though New ...

        York       I'll always love you though New ...

        York       I'll always love you though New ...
         G   C       C          G
        York,  New York,  New York
