JIMMY ROGERS lyrics - Chicago Bound

JIMMY ROGERS
"Chicago Bound"
(Jimmy Rogers)

Well, I left out of Georgia 1934
My baby 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 1939
The woman I loved didn't pay me no mind
So I left that town, you know I left that town
When I left out of 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
Well, 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's the best place I ever knowed
I'm-a stay in this town, I'm-a live in this town
I'm gonna live in Chicago, it's the baddest place around
