3. Woke up in New York Cit-y__ In a fun-ky cheap ho-tel

   She took my heart and she took my mo-ney

   She must of slipped me a sleep-ing pill

        A                                   B
   And once you had a taste of her__ You'll ne-ver be the same
              G#m
   And she'll make you go in-sane__ C'mon...

Please Note: I have used 2 x B chord voicings. During the verses, the B chord (7th fret)
             is more in keeping with the steady flow of barre chords up the neck.

             During the choruses it is probably easier to play the B chord (2nd fret)
             as there is less distance between chords.
