[n.c.]              F                   Gm7    C7    Gm7

Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today,

These the vagabond shoes are longing to stay.

C7  Gm7   C7   F                  FM7           F7

And step around the heart of it.  New York, New York!

I'll-- make-- a--  brand-new start of it in old New York.

If I can make it there, I'd make it anywhere!

     C7   D7   Gm7    Am7   BbM7    C11   F

It's up-- to-- you--, New-- York--, New-- York!
