    Lyrics

    From the corners of the country
    From the cities and the farms
    With years and years of living
    Tucked up underneath their arms

    They walk 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 flattop 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 were born to money
    They've never had to say "Survive"
    And others swing a 9 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
    Rolled off of someone's tongue

    And after years of being nothing
    They're all looking right at you
    And for a while they'll go in style
    On 16th Avenue

    It looked so uneventful
    So quiet and discreet
    But a lot of lives where changed
    Down on that little one way street

    'Cause they walk away from everything
    Just to see a dream come true
    So God bless the boys who make the noise
    On 16th Avenue
