Artist: They Might Be Giants
Song: New York City
Album: Factory Showroom

Verse 1:
    E              E     A          B
You called me last night on the telephone, and
E             E                    A          B
I was glad to hear from you 'cause I was all alone, you said "It's
E             E        A                B
snowing, it's snowing! God, I hate this weather."
E                  E                 A      B      E        E
Now I walk through blizzards just to get us back together

We met in the springtime at a rock-and-roll show
It was on the Bowery when it was time to go
We kissed on the subway in the middle of the night
I held your hand, you held mine, it was the best night of my life.

Chorus:
       E               B         A        B
'Cause everyone's your friend in New York City
    E                C#m       A                     B
And everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty
    A                      B                    E               A
The streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see
        A                B                 B/tacet
But the best thing about New York City is...   you and
E     E     A     B
me

Verse 3:
Statue of Liberty, Staten Island Ferry, Co-op City, Katz's and
Tiffany's
Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, The Empire State where Dylan lived
Coney Island and Times Square, Rockefeller Center
Wish I was there

You wrote me a letter just the other day
Said, "Springtime is coming soon so why don't you come to stay."
I packed my stuff, got on the bus, I can't believe it's true
I'm three days from New York City and I'm three days from you

Solo:

Chorus:
'Cause everyone's your friend in New York City
And everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty
The streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see
But the best thing about New York City is
you and me
'Cause everyone's your friend in New York City
And everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty
The streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see
But the best thing about New York City is
you and me

Outro: ( Solo throughout )
