Words & Music by Billy Joel


Album: Turnstiles (1976)


[C] Some folks like to [E7#9]get away

Take a [Am7]holiday from the [Gm7]neighbourhood [C7]

[F] Hop a flight to Mi[A7]ami Beach Or to [Dm7]Hollywood. [Bb9]

[C] But I'm [E7#9] takin' a [Am7]Greyhound [Cmaj7]

On the [F]Hudson [C]River line[D7]

[Fmaj7]I'm in a [G9sus]New York state of [Am7]mind [D7] [Am] [G] [G9sus]


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

I'm in a New York state of [Am7]mind [G] [E7#9]


[Am7] It was so [D7]easy livin' [Gmaj7] day by day

[Gm7] Out of touch [C9] with the rhythm and [Fmaj7]blues

[Bm7] And now I [E7]need a little [Amaj7] give and take

The [Am7]New York [D7]Times

The [Gmaj7]Daily News [Dm7] [G7sus] [G7]


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 [C]

[E7#9] [Am7] [Bb] [Eb6] [Ab] [Dm7] [Db9] [Cmaj9]
