New York State Of Mind

Billy Joel

C                  E7#9
Some folks like to get away
       Am7              Gm7           C7
Take a holiday from the neighbourhood 
F                 A7              Dm7        Bb9
Hop a flight to Miami Beach Or to Hollywood. 
C        E7#9      Am7       Cmaj7
But I'm  takin' a Greyhound 
       F      C         D7
On the Hudson River line
Fmaj7    G9sus             Am7  D7 Am G G9sus
I'm in a New York state of mind    

I've seen all the movie stars
In their fancy cars and their limousines
Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens.
But I know what I'm needin'
And I don't want to waste more time
                           Am7  G E7#9
I'm in a New York state of mind  

Am7        D7          Gmaj7
 It was so easy livin'  day by day
Gm7           C9                   Fmaj7
 Out of touch  with the rhythm and blues
Bm7        E7            Amaj7
 And now I need a little  give and take
    Am7      D7
The New York Times
    Gmaj7      Dm7 G7sus G7
The Daily News

Comes down to reality
And it's fine with me, 'cause I let it slide
don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons
I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind
