Seventeen Pine Avenue

Lyrics: Robert Hunter?
Music: David Nelson

A new song introduced by the New Riders in 2010.

Number 17 Pine Avenue
Corner of South West, Coochie Coo
City and county, Alligator Rue
Tippicanoe and Tyler too

Some have boarders, some don't pay rent
They live or die by accident
Dime to a dollar their names are lost
In the forest of you can count the cost
I had a lover and I let her go
I found another and so it goes
Feel so anxious that sometimes at night
The sheets and the pillow won't fit me right

Number 17 Pine Avenue
Corner of South West, Coochie Coo
City and county, Alligator Rue
Tippicanoe and Tyler too

I drink from the fountain and not the cup
It takes a whole lot to build me up
Haven't had a drink since 7.16
Right to the minute if you know what I mean
7.16, 2008
I remember the time maybe not the date
I was dong the hula with Donald Duck
When all of a sudden I saw the truck

Number 17 Pine Avenue
Corner of South West, Coochie Coo
City and county, Alligator Rue
Tippicanoe and Tyler too

I myself told the devil to try
Back in 1965
When a dollar was still worth 50 cents
And we knew exactly what Elvis meant
Come on baby let's do the twist
Like Chubby Checker it goes like this
Round and around and up and down

Number 17 Pine Avenue
Corner of South West, Coochie Coo
City and county, Alligator Rue
Tippicanoe and Tyler too
