VERSE 1
G                                                      C
  Grew up in a town that is famous as a place of movie scenes
G                                                                         C
    Noise is always loud, there are sirens all around and the streets are mean
G                                                                    C
    If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere, that's what they say
G                                                                     C    G
  Seeing my face in lights or my name on marquees found down on Broad-way
B
  Even if it ain't all it seems, I got a pocket full of dreams
 
 
CHORUS
           C
Baby, I'm from New York
Em               C                G
 Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
                          D
There's nothing you can't do
                  C
Now you're in New York
Em                               G
These streets will make you feel brand new
                    D
Big lights will inspire you
             G                   C
Hear it from New York, New York, New York
 
 
VERSE 2
G                                                           C     G
  On the avenue, there ain't never a curfew, ladies work so hard
                                                                  C    G
Such a melting pot, on the corner selling rock, preachers pray to God
                                                           C       G
Hail a gypsy-cab, takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge
                                                               C    G
Some will sleep tonight with a hunger far more than an empty fridge
B
  I'm gonna make it by any means, I got a pocket full of dreams
 
 
CHORUS
     C             Em
Baby, I'm from New York
C                                  G
  Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
                    D
There's nothing you can't do
              C
Now you're in New York
                                 G
These streets will make you feel brand new
                    D
Big lights will inspire you
             C
Hear it from New York, New York, New York!
 
 
VERSE 3
C
One hand in the air for the big city,
C
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty
D
No place in the world that can compare
Em                                          B
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
