Cat Power – Hard Times In New York City lyrics

( live peel session 2000 )

Old new york city is a friendly old town,
From washington heights to harlem on down.
There's a-mighty many people all millin' all around,
They'll knock you when you're up and kick you when you're down.

It's a mighty long ways from the golden gate
To rockefeller center n' the empire state.
Mister empire sets up as high as a bird,
Old mister rockefeller never says a word.

From the country,
Livin' down in new york town

From the country,
Livin' down in new york town

Old new york city is a friendly old town,
From washington heights to harlem on down.
There's a-mighty many people all millin' all around,
They'll knock you when you're up and kick you when you're down.

It's a mighty long ways from the golden gate
To rockefeller center n' the empire state.
Mister empire sets up as high as a bird,
Old mister rockefeller never says a word.

From the country,
Livin' down in new york town

From the country,
Livin' down in new york town
