An open base note on the E string sounds good when alternated between the 5
and 2 during the chorus.

And heres the lyrics

Well things were spinnin round me
And all my thoughts were cloudy
And I had begun to doubt all the things that were me
Been in so many places
You know Ive run so many races
And looked into the empty faces of the people of the night
And something is just not right  cause I know


That I gotta get out of here
Im so alone
Dont you know that I gotta get out of here
Cause New Yorks not my home

Though all the streets are crowded
Theres something strange about it
Lived there bout a year and I never once felt at home
I though Id make the big time
I learned a lot of lessons awful quick
And now Im tellin you
That they were not the nice kind
And its been so long since I have felt fine  thats the reason

(Repeat Chorus)
