16Th Avenue
Recorded by Lacy J. Dalton
Written by Thom Schuyler

G D7 G
From the corners of the country from the cities and the farms
Em C G D7
With years and years of living tucked up underneath their arms
Em C G C
They walked away from everything just to see a dream come true
G Em C D7 G
So God bless the boys who make the noise on 16th Av-enue

D7 G
With a million dollar spirit and an old flat top guitar
Em C G D7
They drive to town with all they own in a hundred dollar car
Em C G C
Cause one time someone told them about a friend of a friend they knew
G Em C D7 G
Who owns you know a studio on 16th Av-enue

D7 G
Now some are born to money they never had to say survive
Em C G D7
And others swing a nine pound hammer just to stay alive
Em C G C
There's cowboys drunks and Christians mostly white and black and blue
G Em C D7 G
They've all dialed the phone direct to home from 16th Av-enue

D7 G
Ah but then one night in some empty room where no curtains ever hung
Em C G D7
Like a miracle some golden words roll off of someone's tongue
Em C G C
And after years of being nothing they're all looking right at you
G Em C D7 G
And there for awhile they'll go in style on 16th Av-enue

D7 G
Hey it looks so uneventful so quiet and discreet
Em C G D7
But a lot of lives were changed there on that little one-way street
Em C G C
Cause they walked away from everything just to see a dream come true
G Em C D7 G
So God bless the boys who make the noise on 16th Av-enue
