[Verse 1]

       F#m7                        Emaj7             Cmaj7         Dmaj7

Here I am, strolling down Atlantic Avenue, with the sunlight in my eyes,

       F#m7                            Emaj7

Here I am, and there's nothing I would rather do,

       Cmaj7              Dmaj7

When I want some peace of mind!

[Verse 2]

       Bm7                      C#m7            Dmaj7            E7sus4

Oh---,     I leave the smoke of Rio behind, as evening starts to fly,

Bm7                      C#m7

I want to feel the ocean breeze,

           Dmaj7             D#m7b5        E7sus4

Where the mountains kiss the sky--------, y------!)

[Verse 3]

        F#m7               Emaj7           Cmaj7       Dmaj7

So, come on, down Atlantic Avenue, let the samba take a hold of you,

          F#m7                              Emaj7

'Cause, I know, there is  no place like the Avenue,

          Cmaj7       Dmaj7

When that music gets a hold of you!

[Verse 4]

           Bm7                 C#m7           Dmaj7          E7sus4

Woh - oh,      drive along to Ipanema there's always time to spare,

Bm7                     C#m7                    Dmaj7          D#m7b5

Forget the troubles of the world, when they get to much to bare---!

E7sus4

Oh - oh, woh - oh, oh - oh!

[Verse 5]

  F#m7              Emaj7  Cmaj7    Dmaj7

|  /   /   /   /  |  /  /   /  /  |  /   /   /   / |

                       F#m7                  Emaj7

Won't you, please, come on... down Atlantic Avenue?

          Cmaj7              Dmaj7

Nah - nah, na, nah 'n' nah - ah-------! Ah------! Ah------!

[Bridge]

 G#m7          C#7         F#m7           B7

Flying down to Rio, never thought I would be,

  Bm           Fdim        F#m    F#m7

Walking by the ocean, here today,      no,

Bm                    Fdim         F#m7            B7        E7sus4

Pretty soon I've got to leave, but I know my heart will stay----!

F7sus4

Woh -oh, oh---, oh, oh...

[Verse 6]

   D#maj7           Fmaj7    C#maj7           D#maj7

...oh---, Atlantic Avenue!         Oh---, oh, oh!

      Gm7                          Fmaj7            C#maj7        D#maj7

Here I am, strolling down Atlantic Avenue, with the sunlight in my eyes,

           Gm7                             Fmaj7

Oh, here I am, and there's nothing I would rather do,

      C#maj7             D#maj7

When I want some peace of mind----!

                              (When I want some peace of mind!)

[Verse 7]

         Gm7                 Fmaj7           C#maj7      D#maj7

So, come on,   down Atlantic Avenue, let the samba take a hold of you,

         Gm7                                     Fmaj7

'Cause I know... woo, there is no place like the Avenue,

         C#maj7       D#maj7

When that music gets a hold of you!

[Verse 8]

       Gm7                         Fmaj7

Here I am, strolling down Atlantic Avenue,

          Dbmaj7        Ebmaj7

With the sunlight in my eyes,

(Oh----, sun------light in my eyes!)

[Verse 9]

      Gm7                              Fmaj7

Here I am, and there's nothing I would rather do,

      Dbmaj7             Ebmaj7

When I want some peace of mind----!
