    A
And I found a flower in a field 
A field of cars and people;
rows of concrete, paint, and steel
DM7          D        A
Manhattan is where it grew 

    A
And I thought to cut it from it's stem 
And take it from the cracks between bricks that it lay in 
    DM7          D    A
And save it from city strife
 DM7          D    A 
Away from the city life 

Then someone they whispered in my ear 
A county girl can't be made out of anybody here 
Don't touch it, it loves you not 
Don’t touch it, it loves you not 

Cause blue birds don't fly without their wings 
And when we put them in a cage the world can't hear them sing 
So selfish when greed sets in 
Possession, the king of sin 

And people don't ever let you down 
Forever find a way to kill whatever life they've found 
A heart beat and I want it too 
Manhattan is where she grew 

So I left and I let the flower be 
And yesterday saw the flower on cable TV 
Much prettier than here with me 
For all of the world to see 
Much prettier than here with me
