Streets of Soho -- Antje Duvekot Alt. tuning: EADGAe CAPO II Chords at end
Intro: A4hA, AhA6-A4, A4hA, A9-A4 x2
When she moved to the city she was 20 years old A4hA, AhA6-A4...
Coming from the midwest she had never left home
Upon the Brooklyn bridge, she took a
Deep breath A4hA, A9-A4
Well the boys on Water Street whistled & chimed A4hA, AhA6-A4...
Singin' "Hey, seniorita, my you look fine," and baby
Take a deep...
An' hey, la, hey la la la E
Livin' in the city that never stops, oh A, A6-A
Sweet little baby is in for a shock 'cause the A4, A4/B
Streets of Soho ain't like Iowa A, A6-A4 x2, A4hA, A9-A4
She got a job at a deli on Maple & Kent A4hA, AhA6-A4...
$5 an hour can barely make rent and she's
Closing up late...
She struck up with an actor who waited on tables A4hA, AhA6-A4...
He told her he loved her so she let him stay and he was
Gone the next... day
CHORUS (with rise on "Iowa", end w/ A4hA, A-A4 into Bridge)
There's beggars and brokers, artists & millionaires F#m, E
Women in fur coats, yeah, and strippers upstairs A, A4/B
There's graffiti on back walls and sleeping in alleyways F#m, E
47th floor, yeah, she's come a long way A, A4/B-A4
There are lawyers and bankers and limos and taxi cabs F#m, E
Busses and traffic are blaring their horns A, A4/B
There's shouting in Spanish... an' hey la la... F#m, E (hold)
It ain't like Iowa...(To intro with A9v2-A4 second time)
Now she's living with a stripper in a 1-room flat A4hA, AhA6-A4...
And she wonders what her daddy would have thought about that
But she wouldn't want to go back
Wouldn't want to go back to Iowa
Now she is locking up the deli and getting on the subway
Throws a cigarette out it's been a long long day
But she is feeling grown up... yeah...
Take a deep breath... A4hA, AhA6-A6
