New York State of Mind- Billy Joel


9/11 is a very personal memory for me. You see, my friend, Tom McGuinness, was the Co-Pilot on that day. He and his wife & their two kids, Tommy and Jennifer went to my church. Many times I saw their smiles out in the lobby or in someone's home. All that changed on 9/11, as you know. They had 2 Memorial services, one on the East Coast and one at my church, on the West Coast. I played the keyboard and watched a very brave wife, Cheryl, and her son & daughter, sit in the front row. It is indeed a time for solemn reflection and prayer today. You know, everyone knew someone that was in this terrible tragedy. I thank you for listening to my story.

In honor of Tom McGuinness

New York State of Mind

C E7-9
Some folks like to get away,

Am7 Gdim C7
Take a holiday from the neighborhood,

F A7 Dm7 Bb9
Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood.

C E7-9 Am7 CM7 F C D7
But I'm takin' a Greyhound on the Hudson River line --

G9 Am7 G E7-9 Am7
I'm in a New York state of mind.


C E7-9
I've seen all the movie stars

Am7 Gdim C7
In their fancy cars and their lim - ou - sines,

F A7 Dm7 Bb9
Been high in the Rockys under the evergreens;

C E7-9 Am7 CM7 F C D7
I know what I'm needin', and I don't wanna waste more time --

G9 Am7 G
I'm in a New York state of mind.



Bridge:

E7 GM7
It was so easy livin' day by day

Gm7 C9 FM7
Out of touch with the rhythym and blues;

Bm7 E7 AM7
But now I need a little give and take,

Am7 D7 GM7
The New York Times, the Daily News.


C E7-9
It comes down to reality,

Am7 Gdim C7
And it's fine with me, 'cause I've let it slide;

F A7 Dm7 Bb9
I don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside.

C E7-9 Am7 CM7 F C D7
I don't have any reasons; I left them all behind --

G9 Am7 G
I'm in a New York state of mind.


Coda:

C E7-9 Am7 CM7 F C D7
I'm just taking a Greyhound on the Hudson River line.

G9 C E7-9 Am7 Bb9 C7/9
'Cause I'm in a New York state of mind.

This is one of those great modern songs!
