John Cafferty — Nyc Song lyrics

Said, hey little girl take me by the hand
Walk with me down this boardwalk one last time again
We'll see those pretty pier lights, hear those carnival sounds
Gonna stop right at the top tonight, when the ferris wheel goes 'round
You say that I've been restless, you don't understand
Tomorrow I'll be leavin' on that morning train
Gonna leave this candy apple town behind
And get out while I still can
Goin' to New York city, with this guitar in my hand
Been wishin' on these stars too long, been playin' in these bars too long
Been hold up in your arms too long, been a prisoner of my heart too long
Goin' to New York city, gonna find out where I stand
Then I'll be walking down Broadway, with this guitar in my hand

Instrumental Break

Well I sing for these tourists, 'bout a dream life on the water
When the dream, it gets broken, this life gets harder and harder
Leave this candy apple town behind
And get out while I still can
Goin' to New York city, with this guitar in my hand
Been wishin' on these stars too long, been playin' in these bars too long
Been hold up in your arms too long, been a prisoner of my heart too long
Goin' to New York city, gonna find out where I stand
Then I'll be walking down Broadway, with this guitar in my hand
