lonely street lyrics – andy williams

words and music by carl belew, kenny sowder, and w.s. stevenson

(peak billboard position # 5 in 1959)

where’s this place called “lonely stree-ee-ee-eet?”

i’m looking for that lonely street
i’ve got a sad, sad tale to tell
i need a place to go and weep
where’s this place called “lonely stree-ee-ee-eet?”

a place where there’s just loneliness
where dim lights bring forgetfulness
where broken dreams and mem’ries meet
where’s this place called “lonely stree-ee-ee-eet?”

perhaps upon that lonely street
there’s someone such as i
who came to bury broken dreams
and watch an old love di-ie

if i could find that lonely street
where dim lights bring forgetfulness
where broken dreams and mem’ries meet
where’s this place called “lonely stree-ee-ee-eet?”

where’s this place called “lonely stree-ee-ee-eet?”
