Lonely Avenue

Album: Yes Indeed! (1956)
  • 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

    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

    I could cry, I could cry, I could cry (ooh)
    I could die, I could die, I could die (I need help from somebody)
    Because I live on a lonely avenue
    (Lonely avenue) oh, yes sir

    Now you know my covers they feel like lead
    And my pillow it feels like stone
    Well, I've tossed and turned so every night
    I'm not used to being alone

    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

    I could cry, I could cry, I could cry (oh)
    I could die, I could die, I could die (oh)
    'Cause I live on a lonely avenue
    Yes, sir (Lonely avenue)

    Lonely avenue
    Lonely avenue

    Now I've been so sad and lonesome
    Since you've left this town
    You know if I could beg or borrow the money
    Child, I would be a highway bound

    I live on a lonely avenue
    My little girl wouldn't say I do
    Well, I feel so sad and blue
    You know its all because of you

    I could cry, I could cry, I could cry (oh)
    I could die, I could die, I could die (yeah)
    I live on a lonely avenue
