Capo 2


[Intro]

E        Amaj7
Ooohh New York x2


[Verse 1]

E                                                      Amaj7
Grew up in a town that is famous as the place of movie scenes
E                                                                     Amaj7
Noise is always loud, there are sirens all around and the streets are mean
E                                                                Amaj7
If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere, that's what they say
E                                                                 Amaj7
Seeing my face in lights or my name in marquees found down on Broadway


[Pre-chorus]

G#
Even if it ain’t all it seems, I got a pocketful of dreams


[Chorus]

               Amaj7
Baby, I'm from New York
                                      E
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
                    B
There's nothing you can't do
               Amaj7
Now you're in New York
                                  E
These streets will make you feel brand new
                    B
Big lights will inspire you
                       Amaj7
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New Yoooork!


[Verse 2]

E                                                      Amaj7
On the avenue, there ain't never a curfew, ladies work so hard
E                                                                     Amaj7
Such a melting pot, on the corner selling rock, preachers pray to God
E                                                                Amaj7
Hail a gypsy cab, takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge
E                                                                 Amaj7
Some will sleep tonight with a hunger for more than an empty fridge


[Pre-chorus]

G#
I'm gonna make it by any means, I got a pocketful of dreams


[Chorus]

                   Amaj7
Baby, I'm from New York
                                        E
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
                    B
There's nothing you can't do
                   Amaj7
Now you're in New York
                                        E
These street will make you feel brand new
                    B
Big lights will inspire you
                      A
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New Yoooork!

Amaj7
One hand in the air for the big city,
                                             B
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty
                                        C#m   
No place in the world that can com-pare
                          G#
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


[Chorus]

       Amaj7
In New York
                                        E
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
                    B
There's nothing you can't do
                A
Now you're in New York
                               E
These streets will make you feel brand new
                   B
Big lights will ins-pire you
                          Amaj7                          E
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New Yoooork!
