Windy City Anne
By Tom T. Hall
Written by Tom T. Hall
Album: The Storyteller (1972)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

   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

I'd like to know and understand your people
    G                A             D
But I can't meet 'em all, you understand
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


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


Now I learned a lot from Windy City Ann
