At the beginning of Garth Live From Central Park VHS, scenes of the New York skyline are shown on the screen as Garth sings, "New York.....'Cross your great skyline I come.....Flyin' in from Dublin to your door. New York....lookin' down on Central Park, where they say you shouldn't run to after dark...." I can't quite get out the rest of it. Does anyone know the name of this song, and please give me the rest of the words

The song is originally by Simon and Garfunkel. He referenced to that on the copy I have, which was taped and they had some behind the scenes stuff before they showed the concert. It is called "A Heart In New York."

Take heart, Sky

--------

New York, to that tall skyline I come, flyin' in from London to your door
New York, lookin' down on Central Park
Where they say you should not wander after dark

New York, like a scene from all those movies
But you're real enough to me, but there's a heart
A heart that lives in New York

A heart in New York, a rose on the street
I write my song to that city heartbeat
A heart in New York, love in her eye, an open door at a friend for the night

New York, you got money on your mind
And my words won't make a dime's worth a difference, so here's to you New York

Did both Simon & Garfunkel do that? I really liked that intro too!

Did they ever perform seperately? If they did, I was not aware of that... I am pretty sure it was both of them... I think the Indigo Girls did a version too, but theirs would have to have been a cover. Or they may have opened a concert with that song like Garth did. Not too familliar with the song or either of the bands- I found theirs by accident on kazaa long ago... But Garth did say his opening was a Simon and Garfunkel tribute.

Thanks! I just wasn't really sure. I always preferred Art's solo stuff to Simon's, and Art shines on that one! :)
