EMPIRE STATE OF MIND               ALICIA KEYS

Capo 2nd Fret

E     =  022100
Amaj7 =  002120
B     =  xx4442

E        Amaj7
Ooohh New York  (x2)


E                                                      Amaj7
Grew up in a town that is famous as the place of movie scenes
E                                                                     Amaj7
Noise is always loud, there are sirens all around and the streets are mean
E                                                                Amaj7
If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere, that's what they say
E                                                                 Amaj7
Seeing my face in lights or my name in marquees found down on Broadway


Pre-Chorus:

G#
Even if it ainít all it seems, I got a pocketful of dreams


Chorus:
               Amaj7
Baby, I'm from New York
                                      E
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
                    B
There's nothing you can't do
               Amaj7
Now you're in New York
                                  E
These streets will make you feel brand new
                    B
Big lights will inspire you
                       Amaj7
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New Yoooork!



E                                                        Amaj7
On the avenue, there ain't never a curfew, ladies work so hard
E                                                                Amaj7
Such a melting pot, on the corner selling rock, preachers pray to God
 E                                                          Amaj7
Hail a gypsy cab, takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge
 E                                                           Amaj7
Some will sleep tonight with a hunger for more than an empty fridge


Pre-Chorus
G#
I'm gonna make it by any means, I got a pocketful of dreams


Chorus:
                   Amaj7
Baby, I'm from New York
                                        E
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
                    B
There's nothing you can't do
               Amaj7
Now you're in New York
                                 E
These street will make you feel brand new
                    B
Big lights will inspire you
             Amaj7
Hear it for New York, New York, New Yoooork!

Amaj7
One hand in the air for the big city,
                                             B
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty
                                        C#m   
No place in the world that can com-pare
                                             G#
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Chorus:
       Amaj7
In New York
                                        E
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
                    B
There's nothing you can't do
               Amaj7
Now you're in New York
                                  E
These streets will make you feel brand new
                    B
Big lights will inspire you
                   Amaj7          E
Let's hear it for  New Yoooork!
