  • Lyrics: NEW YORK DOLL (gcd) I was raised in a trailer on the wrong side of the track As sure as I got outta there I swore I’d never come back So sailed the seven seas and I rambled cross the world Man you know I had my share of about a thousand pretty girls Well I thought I’d burned the candle that I done and seen it all Then I went up there and met myself a New York Doll Well I might have been a stranger when I walked into the room But I knew I had to have her and it had to be real soon Her eyes locked on mine even though there was a crowd Man you could’ve heard a pin drop when the guitars got loud By the time she said hello to me I was pickin up my jaw And I knew right then and there she’d be My New York Doll Well she offered me a drink and I said bourbon if you please I was tryin to act like Eastwood but I was trembling at the knee She asked me why I played alone I said I fired the band ‘Fore I knew what was goin on she led me by the hand Right out into the street and with a kiss that told it all That’s the night I fell in love with a New York Doll “Hey bright lights big city won’t you please Drag me over that bridge to her heart Subway train roll it on down the line Get me to the place where I can fall into her arms” Now I’m a hard drinkin hell raisin kind of a man And I never needed nothin or no one to hold my hand Cos I’d love’em and leave’em Then I’d ride into the sun At my back there was the wind And my guitar slung like a gun Now all the tattoos boys are jealous I’m the king of all outlaws I’m the one who stole the heart of a New York Doll “Hey bright lights big city won’t you please Drag me over that bridge to her heart Subway train roll it on down the line Get me to the place where I can fall into her arms” Well I thought I’d burned the candle That I’d done and seen it all I’m the one who won the heart Of a New York Doll
