NEW YORK CITY BLUES (Merle Haggard) Merle Haggard - 1972 Everyone in New York City's got a frownin' face And I'm sure glad that I'm just passin' through This old country boy from Okie sure feels out of place Why I'm singin' these New York City blues Now Southern hospitality is far behind A thing these yankee folks don't ever use And you'll find it somewhere down below that Dixon Line Oh Lord, I got these New York City blues Here it comes now (Instrumental Break) This old town sure get lonely late at night When your only friend's a rotgut jug of booze But come daylight in the mornin' I'll be out of sight Lord, I got these New York City blues Yeah, and Southern hospitality will soon be mine 'Cause I'm goin' back where the sidewalks fit my shoes Mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm I got these New York City blues (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2020)
