[Intro]
C C/B Am C/B  (4x)

[Verse 1]  
C   C/B     Am        C/B C
    I can’t wait another day,
C   C/B       Am            C/B C
    For your light to shine my way,
C       C/B     Am              C/B C
    And you can fill your boots on me babe
C   C/B       Am          C/B C
    From this path I will not stray,

C       C/B       Am          C/B C
    And if you’re heading out to sea,
C         C/B          Am         C/B C
    Bring some of that glory back for me, 
C               C7
    Just for me,

[Chorus]
F     G      C       C/B           Am
    Oowee, I fell in love with the city,
F      G                 C         C7
    Weeoo, You know it’s true,
F     G                 C      C/B       Am  
    Oowee, although the countryside’s so pretty I just,
F           G            C
    Can not leave the avenue.

[Verse 2]
C     C/B          Am              C/B  C
    I woke up, you woke up, and we were gone,
C   C/B         Am            C/B C
    Whatever we had that bird has flown,
C   C/B         Am           C/B C
    And now you can’t afford to roam,
C   C/B      Am              C/B C
    Too much waiting for you at home,

C   C/B         Am              C/B C
    And all the kids we thought we knew,
C   C/B           Am         C/B   C
    Have now worn holes into their shoes,
C   C/B                   Am             C/B   C      C7
    Through which they’re picking up all their blues,

    [Chorus]
F     G      C       C/B           Am
    Oowee, I fell in love with the city,
F      G                 C         C7
    Weeoo, You know it’s true,
F     G                 C      C/B       Am  
    Oowee, although the countryside’s so pretty I just,
F           G             C    
    Can not leave the avenue.

    [Verse 3]
C        C/B    Am         C/B C
    Everybody’s got a tale to tell,
C       C/B   Am         C/B C
    And if we never meet ourselves,
C       C/B   Am          C/B C
    How do we have a hope in hell,
C       C/B   Am               C/B      C
    Of living right before the knockout bell,

C      C/B     Am             C/B         C
    If we stop moving you say we’re gonna die,
C          C/B         Am              C/B  C
    You’re hearing the cracks of thin, thin ice,
C       C/B  Am                  C/B  C      C7
    And ever pointed forward are your eyes,

    [Chorus]
F           G           C       C/B           Am       
    Believe me honey, I fell in love with the city,
F              G                  C       C7
    And before you I did not feel blue,
F            G            C            C/B       Am
    Speak it true, and if you and this place are through,
            F                  G              C       F
    Oh it’s goodbye, I can not hope to follow you, oh no no,
F                G         C
    I just can’t leave the avenue.
