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!
CHORUS:
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.
2. (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!
CHORUS
3. 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!
CHORUS

Ray Charles

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American musician known as Ray Charles (to avoid confusion with champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson.) He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records. He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business.” more »
