New York State of Mind (c) 1976 Joelsongs by Billy Joel

Lead vocal: Claude



Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami beach or to Hollywood
I'm taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River line
I'm in a New York State of mind



I've seen all the movie stars in their fancy cars and their limosines
Been high in the rockies under the evergreens
I know what I'm needing and I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a New York State of mind



It was easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take, the New York Times and the Daily News


It comes down to reality and it's find with me cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
Don't have any reasons , I've left them all behind
I'm in a New York State of mind

It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
but now I need a little give and take
The New York Times and The Daily News

It comes down to reality and it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River line
I'm in a New York State of mind.
