Written and Recorded by Tom T. Hall
[C]Chicago gets along so well [F]without me
Thought I’d [G7]go to Indiana for a [C]while
The wind comes off the lakes so cold it [F]freezes
Chicago [G7]didn’t try to make me [C]smile
She told me that she was a Spanish [F]gypsy
A [G7]black band round her neck to prove her [C]race
She said she’d like to do some drinking [F]with me
But the dishes were all [G7]dirty at her [C]place
I’d [Am]like to know and understand your people
But I [F]can’t meet ’em [G7]all you under[C]stand
All [Am]I really know about Chicago
Is [C]what I learned from [F]Windy City [C]Anne
I guess she taught me some about [F]Chicago
There were [G7]lines of discontent there in her [C]face
For what she helped me know about [F]Chicago
I helped her do the [G7]dishes at her [C]place
The sounds of old Chicago through the [F]windows
I [G7]gathered up my thoughts to meet the [C]day
I stayed and helped her dirty up the [F]dishes
Rememberin’ I [G7]found them all that [C]way
The bus pulled out to Fort Wayne [F]Indiana
[G7]Chicago slowly faded out of [C]sight
I suppose the people are just [F]people
It was just another [G7]Windy City [C]night
Now I learned a lot from [F]Windy City [C]Ann[/chordpress]
