In New York

             [Verse 1]
C       E7       Am       D7
In New York, I ride the train
      F         G       C
with headphones and my tunes,
         C         E7      Am     D7
because I'm depressed and life is pain,
         F       G       C
plus it keeps away the loons.
F7                                        C7
So my favorite bands, they get me through my commute
F7                                    A7      G7
and I keep the world at the bay as I keep on my root,
        C       E7       Am          D7
Because in New York, my headphones play,
       F       G         C
some song that goes like this:

[Verse 2]
C        F   G              Am            Bbmaj7
You're alone, your friends, they're gone,
   C       F     G             Am            Bbmaj7
So you're alone, your friends, they're gone,
   C       F     G             Am            Bbmaj7
So you're alone, your friends, they're gone,
   C       F     G
So you're alone, so alone,

[Verse 3]
C          E7   Am       D7
Then some barbershop quartet
       F           G     C
walks through the subway door,
     C     E7      Am    D7
They do a song and I get upset,
         F              G         C
'cause I can't hear my tunes anymore,
F7                                       C7
Then I say "Thank god, I'm getting off at Union Square"
     F7                                A7             G7
but when I reach the station, there's another quartet there,
        C      E7             Am  D7
Because in New York, they're everywhere,
F         G       C
singing crap like this:

[Verse 4]
C
Knot, knot,
F                 G
Tie a knot, knot around,
        Am
Who you love,
       Bbmaj7
And uh-hold on for good,
C
Knot, knot,
F                 G
Tie a knot, knot around,
        Am
Who you love,
       Bbmaj7
And uh-hold on for good,
C
Knot, knot,
F                 G
Tie a knot, knot around,
        Am
Who you love,
       Bbmaj7
And uh-hold on for good,
       Bbmaj7
And uh-hold on for good,
       Bbmaj7
And uh-hold on for good,

[Verse 5]
                                                 G
And I'm trying to listen to the music on my headphones,
F
But the songs together, they just go:
N.C.
*improvised musical mess/screaming*
F                                             G
I'm trying to focus on sad, sad world on my headphones,
But they're messing it up, and now it's all just:
N.C.
*improvised musical mess/screaming*

[Verse 6]
Csus4                                   C
But then something weird happens, for a moment,
Csus4                   C
For a moment, something weird,
The:
C      F     G            Am
You're alone, your friends, they're gone,
Bbmaj7
Syncs up with,
C
Knot, knot,
F                 G
Tie a knot, knot around,
        Am
Who you love,
       Bbmaj7
And uh-hold on for good
And it becomes:
C              F
You're not not alone,
                            G               Am
Tie a knot knot around your friends who you love,
               Bbmaj7
They're gonna hold on for good
C  F                   G         Am          Bbmaj7
   And I'm trying to be pessimist but I can't, I can't because,
C   F               G                    Am    Bbmaj7
   Suddenly there's music no one's ever heard before,
C   F               G                    Am    Csus4
   Suddenly there's music no one's ever heard before, before,

[Verse 7]
         C       E7   A7           D7
And I'm thankful for moments like this,
      F      G      C
when two musics combine,
          C         E7        A7          D7
When the "Thump-a-Thump" of a stranger's heart
F        G         C
thumps along with mine.
