Billy Joel New York State of Mind (12 Gardens Live) Lyrics

Last updated: 09/27/2009 11:00:00 AM

Some folks like to get away, take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood
But I'm taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line
I'm in a New York state of mind, oh yeah

Seen all the movie stars in their fancy cars and their limousines
Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens
But I know what I'm needing and I don't want to waste more time
I'm in a New York state of mind, oh yeah

It was so easy living day by day, out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give & take, The New York Times, The Daily News
Whoa whoa whoa

It comes down to reality and it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
I don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside
I don't have any reasons, left them all behind
Just 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 Post, Newsday too
Whoa whoa whoa

It comes down to reality and it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide
I don't care if it's Riverhead or on Oceanside
I don't have any reasons, left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind, oh yeah

I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River Line
'Cause I'm in a
I’m in a New York
State of
Mind, yeah eah eah


(On a saxophone, it’s Richie Cannata.)
