"Old College Avenue" as written by and Harry F. Chapin....
Of course I picked a rainy night
To try to find our past
The street lights all were flickering
The leaves were falling fast

I walked down the winding road
Looked up through the trees
And I saw the corner window
That you once shared with me

It was Old College Avenue
And in the time of having you
I remember it as if it were today
The tiny room and the single bed

Though the tangled trails of time
Have led us far astray
The membrance seems to stay
And through all the roads

That led me on
And through all the years
That you've been gone
I have found that it would never go away

It was Old College Avenue
And in the time of having you
I remember it as if it were today
That fall turned into winter

The winter into spring
And all the while, you led me through
The sweet awakening
But summer never came that year

It's what you went to find
And you took my future with you
And you left your past behind
It was Old College Avenue

And in the time of having you
I remember it as if it were today
The tiny room and the single bed
Though the tangled trails of time

Have led us far astray
The membrance seems to stay
And through all the roads
That led me on

And through all the years
That you've been gone
I have found that it would never go away
It was Old College Avenue

And in the time of having you
I remember it as if it were today
I remember you
As if

It were
Today
