NEW YORK CITY SONG (Linda Hargrove) Tanya Tucker - 1972 Linda Hargrove - 1973 Diana Trask - 1976 I'm sittin' in this New York City hotel room alone Wishin' I was somewhere else or on my way back home Nashville, Tennessee, I know that's where I do belong 'Cause I don't know no New York City song They know I'm from Dixie when I open up my mouth They don't treat the ladies here the way they do down South I thought I could make it here, but I can't get along 'Cause I don't know no New York City song And Lord, I'd like to tell you just how much I'd like to leave 'Cause in my mind that southbound song is tuggin' on my sleeve New York City ain't the place a country girl should be New York City ain't the place for me Today I walked a New York City avenue downtown I've never seen so many people hurryin' all around And when I smile they look as if to say that smilin's wrong No, I don't know no New York City song I'm sittin' in this New York City hotel room alone Wishin' I was somewhere else or on my way back home Nashville, Tennessee, I know that's where I do belong 'Cause I don't know no New York City song 'Cause I don't know no New York City song (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2011)
