   D                           G
Chicago gets along so well without me
            A                   D
Thought I'd go to Indiana for a while
    D                                   G
The wind comes off the lakes so cold it freezes
        A                     D
Chicago didn't try to make me smile

She told me that she was a Spanish gypsy
A black band round her neck to prove her race
She said she'd like to do some drinking with me
But the dishes were all dirty at her place


Chorus:
    Bm
I'd like to know and understand your people
    G                A             D
But I can't meet 'em all, you understand
    Bm
All I really know about Chicago
   D                   G          D
Is what I learned from Windy City Anne


I guess she taught me some about Chicago
There were lines of discontent there in her face
For what she helped me know about Chicago
I helped her do the dishes at her place

The sounds of old Chicago through the windows
I gathered up my thoughts to meet the day
I stayed and helped her dirty up the dishes
Rememberin' I found them all that way

Chorus

The bus pulled out to Fort Wayne Indiana
Chicago slowly faded out of sight
I suppose the people are just people
It was just another Windy City night

Chorus

Now I learned a lot from Windy City Ann
