Every time I hear or sing Sidewalks of New York, I wish Seattle had its own song that was just as good. I've created my own lyrics for the Seattle version of Woody Guthrie's So Long, It's Been Good to Know Yuh, but satire isn't the same thing as homage. I only spent two and a half years in New York, but I still miss it.
Here are my chords for the song:

As a bonus, I have filmed Lucia and me singing and playing "Sidewalks of New York." Lucia was in a particularly silly mood during the filming. She's thrilled with her new bob cut and has been swishing her hair around her face all afternoon . Ever since the visit to Santa Paula, California, she's wanted her hair short like two of her cousins.
I'm posting this clip with Blogger's relatively new video feature instead of with YouTube:
P.S. I told Bede that I've filmed myself playing some songs and telling stories, but that they're not the same without Lucia. Bede said, "Lucia is your Gloria!"
