VERSE (strum, play along to the song for
       the timing)

CHORUS (same as the verse, listen to the song for timing.
        and strum the last chord back into the next verse)

Verse 1

Well, I shuffled through the city on the 4th of July
 I had a firecracker waiting to blow
 Breakin' like a rocket who makin' its way
To the cities of Mexico
 Lived in an apartment out on Avenue A
 I had a tar-hut on the corner of 10th
 Had myself a lover who was finer than gold
 But I've broken up and busted up since

Chorus 1

And love don't play any games with me
 Anymore like she did before
 The world won't wait, so I better shake
 That thing right out there through the door
 Hell, I still love you, New York

Verse 2

Found myself a picture that would fit in the folds
 Of my wallet and it stayed pretty good
 Still amazed I didn't lose it on the roof of the place
 When I was drunk and I was thinking of you
 Every day the children they were singing their tune
 Out on the streets and you could hear from inside
 Used to take the subway up to Houston and 3rd
 I would wait for you and I'd try to hide

Chorus 2

And love won't play any games with you
 Anymore if you don't want it to
 The world won't wait and I watched you shake
 But honey, I don't blame you
 Hell, I still love you, New York
 Hell, I still love you, New York
 New York

Verse 3

I remember Christmas in the blistering cold
 In a church on the upper west side
 Babe, I stood their singing, I was holding your arm
 You were holding my trust like a child
 Found a lot of trouble out on Avenue B
 But I tried to keep the overhead low
 Farewell to the city and the love of my life
 At least we left before we had to go

Chorus 3

And love won't play any games with you
 Anymore if you want 'em to
 So we better shake this old thing out the door
 I'll always be thinkin' of you
 I'll always love you though New York
 I'll always love you though New York, New York, New York
