Song Description

An Illinois Town is a quaint, rustic town in Northwest Illinois. I was fortunate to spend four years there...four special years.

Story Behind the Song

My first teaching job was in Mt. Carroll, IL. Met great people, enjoyed the friendliness of the town, and the rustic flavor of it as well. It will always be a special place.

Lyrics

An Illinois Town

Copyright © 1979
Words/music by Bruce Edwin

It's another Sunday morning in this Illinois town,
Look out my window; the snow is falling down.
The branches of the trees are covered with snow;
Birds are flying - to and fro.

Over in the distance an old man walks alone;
Passing the children who are playing in the snow.
He stops awhile and smiles as the children say, "Hello!"
Now he's on his way - leaving footprints in the snow.
And it's places like these that touch the soul,
And stay with you - wherever you go.

I can hear the church bells - they're ringing through the air,
As I watch the people gather from my easy chair.
The air is cold; the sky is gray; the snow is in my way.
Looking out my window - on this December day.

It's another Sunday morning in this Illinois town.
A friendly town - a quiet town - it's good for the soul.
Now, I wasn't born in this little country town,
But, I've got a feeling - I might stay here for awhile.
And it's places like these that touch the soul,
And stay with you - wherever you go.
>Instrumental<
Now, somewhere in the middle of the U.S.of A.,
A friendly town - a quiet town found me one day.
I never thought I'd find myself in this little country town,
But, it looks as though I'll be - staying for awhile.

It's another Sunday morning in this Illinois town,
Look out my window; the snow is falling down.
Over in the distance an old man walks alone;
Now he's on his way - leaving footprints in the snow.
And it's places like these that touch the soul,
And stay with you - wherever you go.
