[Verse]
Bb F C FHe was standing on the highway, somewhere way out in the sticks
Bb F CGuitar across his shoulder like a 30.06
Bb F C FHe was staring in my headlights, when I come around the bend
Bb F CClimbed up on my shotgun side and told me with a grin
[Chorus]
Bb F C FI’m goin’ to New York City
Bb F CI’ve never really been there, just like the way it sounds
Bb F C FI heard the girls are pretty
Bb F CThere must be something happening there, it’s just too big a town
[Verse]
Bb F C FHe was cold and wet and hungry, but he never did complain
Bb F CSaid he’d come a thousand miles through sleet and snow and rain
Bb F C FHe had a hundred stories about, the places that he’d been
Bb F CHe’d hang around a little while and hit the road again
[Chorus]
Bb F C FI’m goin’ to New York City
Bb F CI’ve never really been there, just like the way it sounds
Bb F C FI heard the girls are pretty
Bb F CThere must be something happening there, it’s just too big a town
[Verse]
Bb F C FSee, I’ve been to New York City, seems like it was yesterday
Bb F CI was standing like a pilgrim on the great white way
Bb F C FThe girls were really pretty, but they wouldn’t talk to me
Bb F CI held out about a week, went back to Tennessee
[Verse]
Bb F C FSo, I thought I better warn him, as he climbed out of my car
Bb F CGrabbed his battered suitcase and shouldered his guitar
Bb F C FI knew I was just jealous, if I didn’t wish him well
Bb F CI slipped the kid a twenty, said, Billy give'm hell
[Chorus]
Bb F C FI’m goin’ to New York City
Bb F CI’ve never really been there, just like the way it sounds
Bb F C FI heard the girls are pretty
Bb F CThere must be something happening there, it’s just too big a town
-- Chorus again:
Bb F C FI’m goin’ to New York City
Bb F CI’ve never really been there, just like the way it sounds
Bb F C FI heard the girls are pretty
Bb F CThere must be something happening there, it’s just too big a town
