Chicago Bound - Lyrics

When I left out of Georgia in 19 and 34
My baby she begged me Daddy please don't go
But I left that town, you know I left that town
When I left out of Georgia you know I was Memphis bound

Well I stayed in Memphis in 19 and 39
The woman I'd been lovin' she didn't pay me no mind
Then I left that town, you know I left that town
When I left Memphis, you know I was St.Louis bound

I didn't need no steam heat by my bed
The little girl I had kept it cherry red
But I left that town, you know I left that town
When I left St.Louis, you know I was Chicago bound

I'm gonna tell you something that you all should know
Chicago is the best place I ever knowed
I'm gonna stay in this town, I'm gonna live in this town
I'm gonna live in Chicago, it's the greatest place around
