Green, Anthony - Coney Island Lyrics



I found a letter in the mailbox today,
It said thank you for your thoughts but I'm done,
You said that I would never build this up right here,
And I said that's why I can't work with you son,
Well I can't let this go,
I'm on my way,
But you can only hold my diamond ring,
I keep crawling back to the woman I love,
She's already taken everything.

I'm going to Coney Island have myself a dog,
Reminisce why I still hate it here,
It's all these people with their cotton candy eyes,
It's so sweet now put your train in gear,
I can't let this go,
I'm on my way,
But you can only hold my diamond ring,
I keep crawling back to the woman I love,
She's already taken everything.

The ground is swallowing my options for release,
And if it rains we might just disappear,
I counted oh so many friends up there today,
I'm thinking that's why I still love it here,
I'm thinking that's why I still love it here,
Well I can't let this go,
I'm on my way,
But you can only hold my diamond ring,
I keep crawling back to the city I love,
Cause it's already taken everything,
Well I can't let this go,
I'm on my way,
Cause you can only hold my diamond ring,
I keep crawling back to the woman I love,
She's already taken everything.

  9. SongStartedOver

    It's called reverb, and it does not change the notes at all. It's nothing like auto-tuning.

  10. FKI Slick

    there's some effects but not auto-tune

  11. Huppington

    it's called an echo effect, all it does is make the sound repeat. the unaltered sound that comes naturally from his glorious pipes. so shut up.

  12. Bam_BAM(:

    you have no idea how hated u truely are

  13. N C

    a bit o reverb ain't autotune bro

  14. Thedylannguyen

    He is way better than most music these days those shitty rap songs that Hadley makes any sense with the same words repeated over and over and over again and shit. And his voice is fucking bracing no need for auto tune unlike mr.mistshinobi who's probably into that gay shit.

  15. Jake Lannetti

    If you don't like Anthony Green stop complaining and just turn the video off

  16. Mistshinobi

    @lifer1125 I wish there was autotune, screw this moron one of the worst singers that has gained notoriety.

  17. James D. Bailey

    Hate covers...But this is nice :) And for those insulting Anthony Green I have two words for you: FUCK YOU

  18. Mistshinobi

    terrible, nice cracking voice buddy

    robert c

    Mistshinobi terrible, most arrogant insulting piece of shit garbage comment on this vid.BYEEEEEEEEEEEE

  19. icey washington

    @tommythelion why comment if oyu dont like the song?

  20. icey washington

    @mayohater2 nothing wrong with pop music but i do agree that this is a good song

  21. necroped0phile69

    i was gonna steal this song but the ending is all but off lame

  22. eahs07

    @tommythelion you sir, are horribly mistaken.

  23. cheyenne drury

    Good old war is amazing. Anthony Green is amazing.
    Thank you for such amazing music.

  24. Alex Berger

    amazing

  25. mermaidslayer

    i am hopelessly in love with Anthony Green

  26. Your Friendly Local MG42

    @tommythelion, A music "reviewer" who doesn't like good music? You probably enjoy shitty pop music, am i wrong?

  27. JacuzziSurfer

    I'm 6' 6", and this short fukk's amazing voice is making me all misty-eyed

  28. HoraceHorse

    @vote4calvin lol. no.

  29. Joseph G.

    AG has such an angelic voice

  30. Oliver Gray

    sorry to spam, but if you like this cover please check out purevolume Redfield69401
    theres a cover of coney island thats pretty decent, plus music inspired by anthony green, incubus, and the honorary title

  31. chiavarone10

    @mtber714 I fucking love you for saying that!!!!

  32. Erick

    all those hipster judges/haters will hate, but This song rocks! Good old war version and anthonys cover! Its like, OMG he doesnt have auto-tune, wear expensive clothing, and sing about getting money and bitches, he must suck..right?

  33. Christopher Cervantes

    the video was cut! D:

  34. Chelsea True

    @sgalatian Anthony Green is effing amazing. If you have a better voice, and can sing a better song than him, then you can have a bitchy opinion.

  35. Chelsea True

    @sgalatian get the fuck out.

  36. jihadpizza

    very coool

  37. molotov001

    I think Anthony Green makes it a point to make his guitar as out-of-tune as possible when he does his acoustic performances.

  38. Awildsnorlax

    @sgalatian You're opinion is more shitty so keep it to yourself, homo

  39. Renkei

    His Voice is a little Nasally, and Keith Goodwin had a part in forming Saosin Mind you, Yes Green could probaly do better then this, maybe who knows, and a nasally voice is normal for Male Singers with Higher Pitched voices, If your not a singer personally you shouldn't be commenting on Technique for Recorded Sound. Pretty Simple. He Is not putting much heart into Covering this song at his full, and that's one mistake he makes here in this Cover, Thou with his own music he doesnt fail at that.

  40. Sean Hoy

    I think you mean Good Old War - Coney Island (Anthony Green cover)

  41. Hillsvainkill

    damn ppl stop bitchnnn!! .and just listen to the fucking song !

  42. ubergypsy89

    Ok this cover is not too bad but I don't like his voice in this song and he sounds so much better with his band, thats all I meant.

  43. ubergypsy89

    I'm still not so happy with all these negative comments about what I said. I hate how people judge you with out really knowing you and have no clue about what they are saying. First of all I do know alot about music, I have been playing and studing music for years, I also own and like over 800 albums and have over 15000 tracks in my itunes so don't say I know nothing about music. Good old war is one of my favourite bands and I own all their albums and one circa survive album.

  44. B Nolan

    @ubergypsy89 stfu dude you dont know shit.. you obviously never seen anthony green, good old war, nor circa survive to know how talented they all are.. yeah the original is the best but dont go talking shit on anthony.. trust me ive known people to hate him and once they looked more into him they fell in love... so stfu with you stupid comment dick.. people like you are ignorant to good music and talented artist...

  45. B Nolan

    @whomeverthisconcerns LMFAO great comment =] it made my night! thanks..

  46. DeepWinter

    not nearly as good as Good Old War but nice try though!

  47. ubergypsy89

    Its funny how someone isn't allowed to express there opinion if its negative, seems a little unfair but whatever. And actually his band is ok its just his solo stuff I'm not into. But yeah there's no good reason for people to get annoyed with me for saying I don't like this, its just my opinion and I totally understand why some people would like this cover but its just not for me that all.

  48. Chickenjuggle

    @makeshiftrigger: No it isn't. Their harmonies are pretty simple, actually.

  49. Chickenjuggle

    @ubergypsy89: And yet somehow, life goes on.

  50. MaKayla Nirsberger

    He's so freaking adorable, I swear. <3

  51. ubergypsy89

    I love good old war and I thought your music would be good to as you have worked with the band but to be honest I don't mean to be so in your face and negative but your music is terrible, I don't like your voice a all and you've turned an amazing song into a dull depressing mess of a song. I want to like your music but sorry not going to hapen unfortunitly

  52. ubergypsy89

    I love good old war and I thought your music would be good to as you have worked with the band but to be honest I don't mean to be so in your face and negative but your music is terrible, I don't like your voice a all and you've turned an amazing song into a dull depressing mess of a song.

  74. Greg Bennett

    this sounds like shizz

  75. guitarskllz

    i dont like how at the end of the verse he hits a note that is a half step lower than the chord being played...the dissonance just sounds weird with no vocal resolve.....yuck!

  76. Alexande Burlingame

    just like good old war's version... but slightly worse.

  77. paytonrianda

    @SashaPsychoticc i tune flat so i do 6

  78. Sasha Kazanofski

    @paytonrianda I am almost positive in the fac it's capo 5.

  79. wafflehouseco

    why dosnt it finish the song?

  80. Dustin Howell

    link doesnt work =[ anyone help me???

  81. bloodydesignerjeans

    Amazing♥

  82. Logan Norris

    i always play acoustic in D. i like the lower tone for the clean sound. he usually just writes in D and i guess he doesn't feel like tuning up

  83. FoofLife

    @jakeheims21 WTF DID You say...a

  84. storeboughtarmy

    I hate that he tunes down so much. He really doesnt need to with his voice.

  85. Ashleyrose08

    GOSH i love anthony green. most singers would ruin a song by doing a cover but he's so amazing. He's far from ruining this song.

  86. TJ Mayes

    I love this song. I just saw Good old war in concert with the honorary title. It was awesome. I just posted some covers and an original song. Im curious to get some feedback. check it out.

  87. Hunsy

    Hey, if you guys like this cover, this kid that sings in this cover, sounds just like AG. No joke. check it out kids. :) Coney Island it its best.

  88. Simon Sam

    can anthony green stop ruining great songs? i saw his cover of a lemonheads song he did and he's slaughtering them. no offense, i love old saosin and circa, but cmon.

  89. paytonrianda

    Capo 6 I believe or 4

    0 0 0 0
    1 1 1 1
    0 0 0 0
    2 4 3 2
    3 0 0 0
    0 0 0 0

    Then G, Am, F, C
    Or at least those shapes. Not same chord since it's capo'd

  90. swooper5

    Dude Anthony's voices is so awesome!!

  91. tilran

    Well, compare to the original this dude is uber shite!!!

  92. Jessica Strout

    i love him<3

  93. Brent Mayorca

    does anyone know the tabs for this song?

  94. GVilleAnarcho

    Not true. Iron And Wines cover to Postal Service's Such Great Heights is better than the original.

  95. Ding Dong

    agreed. Good Old War does it better. Anthony has just become an icon though. People gonna eat this up.

  96. Bret Lebo

    Posting once again! but he is so awesome! I can't help it...I have to post this, and he is a good looking guy! glad I grew up in the same area as him! :)

  97. Ty Yarborough

    Both version are freaking great. but you cant really compare them, obviously this version is just a cover that Anthony is doing for fun or to just show some sort of support or appreciation for his friends in Good Old War and its still amazing, but no one can recreate an artists work better than the artist themself.

  98. saztradamus

    wtff haha?
    i mean good old war is incomparable, but he did a pretty decent job compared to others.

  99. Vlogs Of A Certain Nature

    i agree, awful.

  100. Bret Lebo

    thanks for uploading this <3
