    C             Em 
Walking down 5th Avenue
    Am                  G
I saw him walking there with you
   C               Em 
People see and people talk
    Am                 G
Word travels fast 'round my block.

   F          G         C        Am 
Might just save you the price of writing
    F         G       F       Fm 
I could save you an hour or two
  Fm                     C    F
Walking down 5th Avenue
  F       Fm             C    G
Walking down 5th Avenue

                     C
Donít know what to ask of you
   Em               Am  
My mind is gettin' so confused
  G          C
Even when I really try
  Em                     Fm           G
Keeps sounding like Iím saying good-bye.


Somewhere deep in my heart Iím hurtiní

'Cause I keep on remembering you
   F      Fm          C
Walking down 5th Avenue
   F      Fm          C   
Walking down 5th Avenue
  F        Fm         C
Such a long way to go

  F                     G
How many times must I look up and say
  Em             Am    G
What kind of fool am I
   F                             G
But I canít turn my back on the times that we shared
 Em             A
No matter how I try.

Walking down 5th Avenue
    F#m             Bm             A
Canít seem to shake the thought of you
              D
Even in the dark of night
   F#m             Bm           A
Your memories of shining light


Though Iím tryiní to change direction

I pray what I saw ainít true

Walking down 5th Avenue

Walking down 5th Avenue

Such a long way to go


Do, do, do, doÖ
