Lyrics
NEW YORK IS KILLING ME
(STEVE DAFOE 2012)
(COPYRIGHTED)



CHORUS :

A B (FRET A B (FRET)
NEW YORK CITY IS KILLING ME
NEW YORK CITY IS KILLING ME
CHRIST, THIS PLACE IS KILLING ME

EM A EM
THE SMOG, THE DIRT AND THE HURT
YEAH, SMOG, THE DIRT AND THE HURT
SMOG, DIRT AND THE HURT


A B (FRET A B (FRET)
OH, NEW YORK CITY S KILLING ME
YEAH, THIS PLACE IS KILLING ME
NEW YORK CITY IS KILLING ME







VERSE 1:

Fmaj7 C
WHAT I'D GIVE TO SEE A TREE
G Fmaj7
SOME BRANCHES AND LOTS OF LEAVES
C Fmaj7
AND MAYBE JUST A LITTLE QUIET TIME
G Fmaj7
YEAH, THAT'S THE TICKET, THAT'S THE KEY
C Fmaj7
JUST ONE LITTLE OLE' CHARLIE BROWN TREE
G Fmaj7
A GOOD OLE' CHARLIE BROWN TREE


VERSE 2:

WITH BUILDINGS SO BIG THERE IS NO SKY
EVEN THE SMOG CAN'T GET OUT
HOW I GOT HERE; HOW I STAYED
NEVER FIGURED OUT QUITE WHY
JUST WANNA SEE SOME BIG BLUE SKY
A TINY BIT OF THE BIG OPEN SKY



VERSE 3:

I KNOW I JUST GOTTA GET ON A TRAIN
ON A TRACK STRAIGHT TO YOU
BE DONE WITH THIS CITY OF METH AND COCAINE
I FEEL LIKE A SANDMAN IN WATER
WANT TO STOP FEELING SO INSANE
SHOULD GET ON THAT TRAIN
