NEW YORK CITY SERENADE from The Wild, The Innocent and... 


A     F#m               Bm              D
Billy, he's down by the railroad tracks
   A               F#m              Bm        D
Sitting low in the back seat of his cadillac
A       F#m          Bm        D
Diamond Jackie she's so intact
       A        F#m      Bm        D
As she falls so softly beneath him
         Bm
Jackie's heels are stacked
            F#m
Billy's got cleats on his boots
                 Bm
Together they're gonna boogaloo down Broadway
              F#m
And come back home with their loot
     Bm
It's midnight in Manhatten
           D
This is no time to get cute
           E
It's a mad dogs promenade
        A    F#m   Bm
So walk tall
       D                 A  F#m  Bm  D
Better don't walk at all
     A         F#m
Fish lady, oh, Fish lady, Fish lady
    Bm                        D
She baits them tenament walls
           A                            F#m
She wont take corner boys, ain't got no money
            Bm      D
And they're so easy
           A
I said hey babe, ah really 
                       F#m                          Bm  D
Wont you take my hand, waltz with me down Broadway
          A               F#m                         Bm    D
Oh, mama, take my arm and move with me down Broadway, yeah
      A
I'm a young man I talk it real loud
F#m                                 Bm
Yeah babe, I walk it real proud for ya
    D
Ah, so shake it away
          A                                     F#m
So shake away your street life, shake away your city life
    Bm
And hook up to the train
    D
Ah, hook up to the night train
A       F#m               Bm                      D
Hook it up, hook up to the...hook up to the train
                    Bm
But I know that she wont take the train
         F#m
(No, she wont take the train)
        Bm
No, she wont take the train
         F#m
(No, she wont take the train)
        Bm
Oh, she wont take the train
         F#m
(No, she wont take the train)
        Bm
Oh, she wont take the train
         F#m
(No, she wont take the train)
       D
She's afraid them tracks are gonna slow her down
             E
And when she turns this boy'll be gone
   A    F#m  
So long
    Bm             D             A     F#m  Bm  D
Sometimes you just gotta walk on, walk
    A                   F#m
Hey vibes man, hey jazz man
    Bm                    D
Ah, play me your serenade
    A                       F#m             Bm     D
Any deeper blues, you'll be playing in your grave
          Bm
Save your notes
                             F#m
Don't spend 'em on the blues boy
          Bm
Save your notes
                          F#m
Don't spend 'em on the darlin' year inside, boy 
                        Bm
Straight for the church note ringin'
                  D
Vibes man sting a trashcan
          E
Listen to your junk man, ah, listen to your junk man
listen to your junk man, oh, listen to your junk man
     A        F#m
He's singing, singing
     Bm       D
He's singing, singing
     A        F#m
He's singing, singing
            Bm                           D
All dressed up in satin walking down the alley
A        F#m
Singing, singing
Bm          D
Sing, yeah, sing, yeah
A        F#m
Singing, singing
Bm          D
Sing, yeah, sing, yeah
