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,
I could die, I could die, I could die,
Because I live on a lonely avenue, lonely avenue.

(Now my) covers they feel like lead and my pillow it feels like stone,
Well, I've tossed and turned so ev'ry 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
And it's all because of you.
I could cry, I could cry, i could cry,
I could die, I could die, I could die,
Because I live on a lonely avenue, lonely avenue.

Now I've been so sad and lonesome since you've left this town,
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
And it's all because of you.
I could cry, I could cry, i could cry,
I could die, I could die, I could die,
Because I live on a lonely avenue, lonely avenue.
