In New York Town (Lee Hoffman/Dick Greenhaus ca. 1957) In New York town, there did dwell A lovely youth who frailed quite well He bought himself a Mastertone And now he's up and left me all alone cho: Wide and deep my grave shall be With the wild bluegrassers picking over me. Oh once he wore his banjo low And sang those songs we all do know, Now he wears his banjo high He'll pick a tune by Scruggs and pass me by. Oh once he was a Seegerite He'd play for me both day and night. Now that he just picks Scruggs so loud He spends his time with that bluegrassing crowd. There is a Square in New York town Where my love goes and stands around, He picks his banjo every day And "Hit Parade of Love" is all he'll play. Note: Some things don't change. RG
