Chicago Song 03:20
If you're ever in Chicago, let me know If you're ever in Chicago, let me know We'll go walking by the lake or we'll go dancing in the snow If you're ever in Chicago, let me know If you're ever in Chicago, I'll be here If you're ever in Chicago, I'll be here Wrigleyville on game day still smells like hot dogs and beer If you're ever in Chicago, I'll be here I cried the night the White Sox won the Series I cried the night the Cubbies won it, too And I cried the day that Walter Payton died in '99 When you cut this city, it bleeds orange and blue If you're ever in Chicago, listen hard If you're ever in Chicago, listen hard 'Cause she sings like Mavis Staples and she cries like Pops's guitar If you're ever in Chicago, listen hard We'll get high and sing John Prine til morning We'll get high and sing Steve Goodman, too And every Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon song we know When you cut this town, you know it bleeds the blues If you're ever in Chicago, let me know If you're ever in Chicago, let me know My old neighborhood has changed, but it still feels like home If you're ever in Chicago, let me know If you're ever in Chicago, let me know
