lyrics

I packed up my things and I headed east,
I don't know why but it seemed like the place to be,
I could swear Pennsylvania's as wide as the world is round,
or maybe I just can't wait to get to New York Town

I spent my last dollar crossin' the New Jersey line,
the George Washington Bridge ain't cheap, but it's alright,
Lookin' out from there I could see a million lights,
oh New York Town you're lookin' good tonight...

I abandoned my car and headed down to the subway,
took the F train all the way to Delancey,
I played my guitar and I sang till' I could not speak,
The only ones who listened were the hobos, the bums, and the freaks,
Well that's just fine with me,
I only want to speak to those who live honestly,
I don't know what I'd say,
To all you well-dressed people in a hurry...

One day I was playing in Jackson Heights,
That is until the cops showed up and said I ain't hit the right,
they said...eh...it's without a license,
the only right you have is to get locked away,

I said that's a tempting fate,
it would look pretty good on my resume,
but for now I'll acquiesce to the state,
and try and live to play another day...
