16Th Avenue

Song Author Thom Schuyler Performer: Lacy J. Dalton Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]From the corners of the country from the [D7]cities and the [G]farms
With [Em]years and years of [C]living tucked up [G]underneath their [D7]arms   
They w[Em]alked away from ev[C]erything just to [G]see a dream come [C]true
So God [G]bless the boys who [Em]make the noise on [C]16th[D7] Av-e[G]nue  

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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