Eddie And The Cruisers – NYC Song lyrics

Hey little girl take me by the hand
Walk me down this boardwalk
Once last time again
See those pretty pier lights
Hear those carnival sounds
Stop right at the top tonight
When the ferris wheel goes round

Well you say that I've been restless
And you don't understand
Tomorrow I'll be leavin' on that
Morning train
I gotta leave this candy apple town behind
I gotta get out while I still can
I'm going to New York City
With this guitar in my hand

I've been wishin' on these stars too long
Playin' in these bars too long
I've been hold up in your arms too long
I've been a prisoner of my heart too long

I'm goin' to New York City
Gotta find out where I stand
And I'll be walking down broadway
With this guitar in my hand

Well I sing for these tourists
'Bout a dream life on the water
But when the dream it gets broken
This life gets harder and harder
I gotta leave this candy apple town behind
I gotta get out while I still can
I'm going to New York City
With this guitar in my hand

I've been wishin on these stars too long
I've been playin' in these bars too long
I've been hold up in your arms too long
I've been a prisoner of my heart too long

I'm goin' to New York City
Gotta find out where I stand
And I'll be walking down broadway
With this guitar in my hand

    I grew up with this music and these movies, the N. Y. C song was my favorite from a very young age. My dad used to sing it to me when I was a little girl. He told me once that this song was about following your dreams and not being trapped in life. Now that he's passed I listen to it and remember that my dad was the smartest man in the world with the best advice.
