CECIL GANT - Midnight On Central Avenue 

I wrote down the chord structure by ear, I think it is quite correct. 
This version which is tabbed here is in C major, though many of the recordings of 
this song are in Eb major (you can use the tune up option on this site)
This song consists of a 12-bar blues instrumental in the beginning which is 
alternated with an AABA 8-bar jazz-blues chorus for the singing. 
The order goes as follows: 12-bar-blues, AABA, 12-bar-blues, 12-bar-blues, AABA

Part A:
| C      |  C7     | F      |   Fm    |
| C      | Dm7 G6  | C  Am7 | Dm7 G6  |

Part B:
| C      |  F      | F      |   C    |
| C      | Am7     | Dm7    | G6     |

12-bar blues chorus

           C                   C7
When it's  midnight on central avenue,
    F                      Fm7
the cats really jump like mad,
C               Dm7  G6           C           Am7 Dm7 G6
everybody knows just where to go, sweetheart.


           C                   C7
When it's  midnight on central avenue,
    F                      Fm7
no one notices the time,
     C                      Dm7        G6        C        Am7 Dm7 G6
just jive and get high, to ease their trouble in mind.


        C                       F
All the Nightclubs close at two a.m.,
    F                 C
and then it's too bad jim,
    C                        Am
the breakfast clubs have the right away,
    Dm                      G6
they jump and jive till the break of day.


            C                   C7     
When it's  midnight on central avenue,
       F             Fm
it really jumps like mad,
           C          Dm     G6         C        Am Dm G6
then all to bed, enough's been said, sweetheart.
