My boots were Texas leather, mm, My Levis wet and torn

I loved it in Montana, I loved it in the storm
G C Bb F C
I think I'm gonna cross that river, mm, I just might be reborn

New York, New York, winter, sixty-one, taking me a city ride
Bb F G C
Somebody tall must of put out the light, cause it got real dark outside

G C Bb
And I never saw the sun until seventy-one

But I never gave up the fight

And I sure was glad when I saw the dawn

And somebody turned on the light
tacet C F C F C
Somebody turned on the light
