16TH AVENUE (Tom Schuyler) Lacy J. Dalton - 1982 From the corners of the country From the cities and the farms With years and years of livin' 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 Avenue 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 Avenue Now some are born to money They've 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 collect to home From 16th Avenue 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 nothin' They're all looking right at you And for a while they'll go in style On 16th Avenue Hey, it looks so uneventful So quiet and discreet But a lot of lives where changed Down 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 Avenue From the corners of the country From the cities and the farms With years and years of livin' Tucked up underneath their arms They walked away from everything Just to sing for me and you.........FADE
