Lyrics – Songs with city names – New York New York

One of Ryan Adams’ best

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
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
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
Down the streets and you could hear from inside
Used to take the subway up to Houston and 3rd
I would wait for you and not try to hide
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
I remember Christmas in the blistering cold In a church on the upper west side
Babe I stood there 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
As we left before we had to go
Love won’t play any games with you
Anymore if you don’t 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
I’ll always love you though New York
I’ll always love you though New York
New York
New York
