Intro: (Piano) then D G7 D A G7 D Shuffle
We fl[D]ew into town on Sunday
Had to find a place by Monday
Tried Br[G7]idgeport and Westport
F[D]ound a place we thought would do
[A]157 R[G7]iverside Aven[D]ue
S[D]augatuck River's flowin'
Mother Nature's colors were showin'
So c[G7]old so rainy
We c[D]ouldn't help feelin' blue
N[A]ot enough time t[G7]oo many things to d[D]o
We m[D]et a young girl on Main St.
Wanted to just pass her by
She was [G7]homely so lonely she said
"C[D]an I make love to you" we shouted
[A]157 R[G7]iverside Aven[D]ue
Interlude: D G7 D A G7 D
It's [D]over Miss Lena we're leaving
Such a pleasant stay I must say
So n[G7]ice so easy
We h[D]ate to say goodbye to you at
[A]157 R[G7]iverside Aven[D]ue
(Outro on D G7 D A G7 D)
