Cold Hands From New York by Gordon Lightfoot Ukulele Chords


CAPO: 2nd Fret

[INTRO:] G

[VERSE 1:]

I came down to Albany
To New York, to find what I’d been missing
I looked across the river to
The city where the windows all stood glistening
I stood listening

[VERSE 2:]
Into a tunnel I did ride
Like a grave inside, but I was young and able
When I came out the other end
Through the smoke the winter light was feeble
Unreadable

[VERSE 3:]
I was optimistic though
A cabbie told me where to go, I thanked him
A face of white a face of brown
Here a smile, there a look of danger
For a stranger

[CHORUS 1:]
It was too unreal for me
I found no one who trusted me
There was no man could offer me
A cold hand from New York______

[CHORUS 2:]
Cold hands from New York
A voice within you cries
“Won’t someone please help me”

I’ll do the same for you one day
If you should ever pass my way and need me

[VERSE 4:]
I came down to live alone
In New York, the city of the living
There were fortunes at my feet
But most of men were taking, none were giving
Or forgiving

[VERSE 5:]
Children ran and children played
And roses grew in alleyways, I saw them
There were men who lived in style
And others who had died where no one knew them
‘Because they couldn’t win

[VERSE 6:]
There were parks where old men slept
And dingy rooms where babies crept, unwanted
‘Til I began to ask myself
If there was hope or if it mattered what they did
Or if they lived

[CHORUS 1:]
It was too unreal for me
I found no one who trusted me
There was no man could offer me
A cold hand from New York______

[CHORUS 2:]
Cold hands from New York
A voice within you cries
“Won’t someone please help me”

I’ll do the same for you one day
If you should ever pass my way and need me

[VERSE 7:]
I came down to Albany
To New York, to find what I’d been missing
I looked across the river to
The city where the windows all stood glistening
I stood listening

[VERSE 8:]
There were prophets in the squares
And people there who smiled and said forget it
There were lovers in the park
And there was danger in the dark, I felt it
So afraid of it

[VERSE 9:]
There were preachers of the word
And poets who were never heard, I heard them
There were those who would not try
To learn the measure of the lie
They’re living

[VERSE 10:]
I heard a young musician play
In a place where they paid you not to listen
I heard a woman scream for help
While men stood by and offered their best wishes
That’s how it is

[CHORUS 1:]
It was too unreal for me
I found no one who trusted me
There was no man could offer me
A cold hand from New York______

[CHORUS 2:]
Cold hands from New York
A voice within you cries
“Won’t someone please help me”

I’ll do the same for you one day
If you should ever pass my way and need me

[CHORUS 2:]
Cold hands from New York
A voice within you cries
“Won’t someone please help me”

I’ll do the same for you one day
If you should ever pass my way and need me

[CHORUS 2:]
Cold hands from New York
A voice within you cries
“Won’t someone please help me”

I’ll do the same for you one day
If you should ever pass my way and need me
