       Ab7
Now my room has got two windows
But the sunshine never comes through
You know it's always dark and dreary 
Since I broke off, baby with you

            Ab7
I live on a lonely avenue
My little girl wouldn't say I do
Well, I feel so sad and blue
And it's all because of you

[Chorus]
        Eb7 
(I could cry, I could cry, I could cry)
I could cry, I could cry, Oooh!
         Db7
(I could die, I cloud die, I could die)
I need help from somebody
                    Ab7
Because I live on a lonely avenue
(Lonely avenue) Oh yes sir!

[Verse]
               Ab7
Now you now my cover feel like lead
And my pillow feels like stone
Well, I've tossed and turned so every night
I'm not used to being alone
            Eb7
I live on a lonely avenue
My little girl wouldn't say I do
Well, I feel so sad and blue
You know it's all because of you

[Chorus]
        Eb7 
(I could cry, I could cry, I could cry)
I could cry, I could cry, Oooh!
         Db7
(I could die, I cloud die, I could die)
Ooh!
                    Ab7
Because I live on a lonely avenue
(Lonely avenue) Yes, sir! (Lonely avenue)

[Solo]
| Ab7 | Ab7 | Db7 | Db7 |
| Eb7 | Db7 | Ab7 | Ab7 |
            (Choir sings "Lonely avenue" on Ab7)
[Verse]
         Ab7
Now I've been so sad and lonesome
Since you left this town
You know if I could beg of borrow money
Child, I would be (a) highway bound
            Ab7
I live on a lonely avenue
My little girl wouldn't say I do
Well, I feel so sad and blue
You know it's all because of you

[Chorus]
        Eb7 
(I could cry, I could cry, I could cry)
I could cry, I could cry, Oooh!
         Db7
(I could die, I cloud die, I could die)
Oooooo, yeaa
                    Ab7
Because I live on a lonely avenue
(Lonely avenue) Ooooh, avenue! (Lonely avenue)

[Outro]
Ab6
