Goin' Down To New York Town Lyrics by Counting Crows
Goin' Down To New York Town by Counting Crows
Runnin' out of steam,
I wanna go on down to New York town
but I'm stuck in between,
and I could stay on here at home alone
and have myself a think,
But just made a billion dollars
and I wanna put it in the bank.
so if you'd call (call, call,) we could go to town.
Dear Mom if you could see me now
here underneath the lights,
Well they keep 'em on from dusk 'til dawn and everything's alright,
I met a girl with autumn in her eyes and summer in the way
she makes me feel like I was only born today or yesterday.
and if she'd call (call, call,) we could go to town.
But everybody here hates everything I say
And girl I just don't know if I can last another day.
So I guess I'm goin' back;
Back where I belong,
I hope you come along before I get back on that train that takes me,
straight from New York City to the things I left behind.
N' though ain't got no money girl, I'll always have the time.
But I wish that you would hurry,
I hope you get here soon
'Cause I just sold the sky the sun
So I could buy for you the moon.
and if you call (call, call,) we could go to town.
Oh if you call (call, call,)
Yeah if you call (call, call,)
Girl if you call (call, call,)
We could go to town.
