New York Medley
Part 1: “I’m in New York”
I'm in New York away, Lower East Side today,
I'm in New York again, by and by,
Don't know about my life, I wasn't satisfied,
I tried to live that dream, but it wouldn't fly
I'm in New York again, last time I don't know when,
I hopped the plane and escaped from the great white north,
Managed to get some supplies, Airbn'b bourbon on ice,
Sitting back on my single bed with my travel guitar,
Listening to the people and the cars,
Later I'll go out walking, maybe stop into some bars
