lyrics

NEW YORK CITY VIEWS
© Bob Wright
C D G C D G
New York from the water New York from the air
C D G
New York seems like it’s a dream
F D
When you’re first getting there
C D G C D G
New York seen from Africa from Italy or Spain
C D G
New York seems to change as much
F D
As it remains the same

New York seen from Liverpool from Dublin and Beirut
New York is the kind of place
That sings a song for you
New York is a question mark New York is a crowd
New York wants to hear you now
So sing it right out loud

(Chorus)
C D G C D G
New York City, New York City, New… York City
C D G C D G
New York City, New York City views


New York with its bridges and its rivers and its boats
New York with its subways and its sidewalks and its roads
New York opportunities provide us all with hope
But New York makes no promises to those who choose to go

New York is an actor New York is a stage
New York is a place you can begin another page
New York takes the seasons and makes them all it’s own
New York is the reason that you all should sing along

(Chorus)

They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
