Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Finger-picking. 
First tab, so its not guaranteed, but it sounds right. 
Enjoy. Play it at parties if you want people to think you're whiny, neurotic and suicidal.

C
If I had a girl on 9th avenue
                   F
I know exactly what she would do
          D         G    D              G
She would wander at dawn look around At folks
      D              G           D            G
Find someone better looking who tells Better jokes
 F                                             C
And then she'd leave me and I'd walk Back east alone

Em      Am
9 8 7th avenue
Em               Am
Now I'm crossing Madison
Em               Am
Sobbing on Park Avenue
F
Feeling bad on Lexington
Em      Am
3 2 1st avenue
Em         Am
Going east with the wind
Em          Am            F
Cross the FDR to the east river
          C
Fall right in

And if I had a girl on 10th avenue
I know exactly what she would do
She would wander at day look at all the Guys
Find someone who's read more books And has bluer eyes
And then she'd leave me and I'd walk Back east alone

9 8 7th avenue
Now I'm crossing Madison
Sobbing on Park Avenue
Feeling bad on Lexington
3 2 1st avenue
Going east with the wind
Cross the FDR to the east river
Fall right in

And if I had a girl on 11th avenue
I know exactly what she would do
She would wander at night hang around At bars
Find someone who draws better and Plays prettier guitar
And then she'd leave me and I'd walk Back east alone

9 8 7th avenue
Now I'm crossing Madison
Sobbing on Park Avenue
Feeling bad on Lexington
3 2 1st avenue
Going east with the wind
Cross the FDR to the east river
Throw myself in

F                                      G
Until the scum in the east river would Drown me
F                                G
The phlegm and rotten rats would Surround me
F                                    G
The shattered cars at the bottom all Around me
F                                    C
Until I was just another scum in the East river

F                                 Em
And when I become the scum it's my Job to drown
F                                 Em
The pathetic hopes and failures of the Next unloved clown
F                                          Em
Though maybe it would be a girl and We could become scum together
F
Decompose as the river flows
Em
Become one scum together

Become one forever
                               C
One bloated rotten putrid scum forever

9 8 7th avenue
Now I'm crossing Madison
Sobbing on Park Avenue
Feeling bad on Lexington
3 2 1st avenue
Going east with the wind
Cross the FDR to the east river
Fall right in
