Lyrics
BACK TO CHICAGO AGAIN
(Multi Holiday Ballad)
(STEVE DAFOE 2011)
(COPYRIGHTED)



CHORUS 1: (Christmas)

Cm7 (Cascade down) Fmaj7 (Rockabilly)

AND I'M BACK IN CHICAGO FOR CHRISTMAS AGAIN
JUST HEARING THE JAZZ AND FEELING THE BLUES
I'M BACK TO SEE HER SINCE I DON'T KNOW WHEN
BACK IN CHICAGO TO PAY THE SAME OLD DUES
WOW, BACK IN CHICAGO AT CHRISTMAS AGAIN


CHORUS 2: (Thanksgiving)

Cm7 (Cascade down) Fmaj7 (Rockabilly)

BACK IN CHICAGO FOR THE FALL , GOD KNOWS WHY
AND I BUTTON UP MY COAT AS I FEEL NOTHING BUT COLD
WAS NEVER IN MY BLOOD TO TOTALLY SAY GOODBYE
SO IT'S BACK TO CHICAGO FOR THANKSGIVING AGAIN
BACK FOR THANKSGIVING AND OCTOBER AGAIN


CHORUS 3: (St Valentines Day)

Cm7 (Cascade down) Fmaj7 (Rockabilly)

BACK IN ILLINOIS FOR ST. VALENTINES DAY AGAIN
MEMORIES OF CAPONE'S MASSACRE LINGER IN THE SKY
I HEAR THE SULTRY JAZZ AND I'M FEELING THE BLUES
LOTS OF RED HEARTS AND CARDS TO MIX WITH THE RYE
SO GOOD TO BE BACK IN CHICAGO AGAIN
YEAH, ST. VALENTINES DAY IN CHICAGO AGAIN

VERSE 3: (ST VALENTINES)

D Fmaj7 C G

VALENTINES MAKES HER A PLACE OF PURE RED
WITH THE CHARM OF YOUNG LOVE IN THE AIR
BUT THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT LIFE HAS AHEAD
IN THIS SPECIAL PLACE THEY CALL THE 'WINDY CITY'
WINDY CITY.....


VERSE 1: (CHRISTMAS)

D Fmaj7 C G

SHE'S COVERED IN SILVER BELLS AND WINTER SNOW
THERE MAY BE JOY BUT IT'S TINGED WITH A SADNESS
MATCHED BY THE LAKES CHILL AS EVERYONE KNOWS
BE AWHILE BEFORE THERE'S WARMTH AND RAINBOWS
RAINBOWS.......

VERSE 2: (Thanksgiving)

D Fmaj7 C G

SPLASHED IN COLORS OF RED, ORANGE AND YELLOW
PEOPLE AND CITY IS ALIVE IN TRADITIONAL THANKS
HEARTS ARE WARM THOUGH THE COLD IS BELOW ZERO
FOREBODING THE WORST TO COME OF WINTERS CHILL
WINTERS CHILL

Very interesting collage. I listened all the way through. Not sophisticated compositionally but has a very distinctive, compelling sound.
