New York City Blues Lyrics

by Yardbirds

If you've ever been to New York City
You know what I'm talking about, yes you do
Well, if you've ever been to New York City
You know what I'm talking about
They got such pretty little girls in that big town
Make a man wanna jump around and shout

I met a little girl there, she was about five foot eight
I said, "I want you to love me"
She said, "Why man, that'd be great"
So, I got long hair but she took me back, back to see her pad
But the first thing I saw when I arrived there
Was a big black shiny shotgun in the hands of her dad

Alright now, this is how it was, oh no!
Well, alright

I finally learned my lesson such a long time ago
Next little woman that I date
I've got to know, I've got to know her family too
Yes indeed, I gotta know her family too
But if you don't want to be filled full of shotgun holes
Mister, this song is just for you
