New York Son

lyrics

She called me yesterday morning to tell me he’d passed
Not like it came without warning - still my dad went too fast
I want to ask all these people tell me whatever you know
I know a few things about him - there’s so much I still don’t

Yeah I’m a 7 year old boy in my daddy’s shoes
He said, “Son, when I want the news, give me The Daily News.”
Nobody had to tell him where he came from
And when he said, “The Stadium,” he meant Yankee Stadium
He was the man I hope to be before I’m done
New York son

Corner of 102nd and Amsterdam Ave
I took the subway uptown with all that I have
Sat on his stool at the Red Eye where the whiskey’s still strong
He never liked to say, “Goodbye.”
He only said, “So long.”

Yeah I’m a 7 year old boy in my daddy’s shoes
And a 40 something father in search of some clues
Walking through the streets of his youngest years
Holding on to memories and holding back tears
All the kids are playing stickball
Having fun in the New York sun

I’m going to ask all these people tell me whatever you know
I know a few things about him but there’s so much I still don’t

Sometimes I put on his coat and his old leather shoes
And when I want the news, give me The Daily News
Nobody has to tell me where I come from
And when I say “The Stadium,” I mean Yankee Stadium
And no matter where I go I’ll always be one
New York son
