CHORUS
Now, I come from Chicago
That’s where we play the blues
Yes, I come from Chicago
That’s where we play the blues
People came from Mississippi
They brought Chicago the good news

VERSE 1.
Mothers and Fathers
Packed up their old Oldsmobiles
Looking for a better life
Far from the broiling delta fields
Chicago looked like paradise
Through those broken window shields

Repeat CHORUS

VERSE 2.
From the delta came the slide guitar
And, Lord, they played it right
The blues was the backbone
That kept them playing through the night
Singing about lonely moments
Money, lovers, and fights

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
There’s a rumble in the alley
You can hear the blues moan
Listen to the backbeat
And the rolling undertones
Sounds like thunder beating down the doors
Makes you want to stand and scream, “More, more, more!”

Repeat CHORUS

Dedicated to the memory of Mark “The Blues Cannon” Hannon, Tom Peck, Jeff Weinstein and Wayne Welch.
