Windy City Anne Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Chicago gets along so well without me
Though I'd go to Indiana for a while
The wind comes off the lakes so cold it freezes 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
But I can't meet 'em all you understand
All I really know about Chicago is
That 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

I'd like to know and understand your people
But I can't meet 'em all you understand
All I really know about Chicago is
That I learned from Windy City Anne

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

I'd like to know and understand your people
But I can't meet 'em all you understand
All I really know about Chicago is
That I learned from Windy City Anne

Now I learned a lot from Windy City Anne
