Lyrics

BACK TO CHICAGO AGAIN
(Multi Holiday Ballad)
(STEVE DAFOE 2011)
(COPYRIGHTED)



CHORUS 1: (Christmas)

Cm7 (Cascade down) Fmaj7 (Rockabilly)

AND I'M BACK IN CHICAGO FOR CHRISTMAS AGAIN
JUST HEARING THE JAZZ AND FEELING THE BLUES
I'M BACK TO SEE HER SINCE I DON'T KNOW WHEN
BACK IN CHICAGO TO PAY THE SAME OLD DUES
WOW, BACK IN CHICAGO AT CHRISTMAS AGAIN


CHORUS 2: (Thanksgiving)

Cm7 (Cascade down) Fmaj7 (Rockabilly)

BACK IN CHICAGO FOR THE FALL , GOD KNOWS WHY
AND I BUTTON UP MY COAT AS I FEEL NOTHING BUT COLD
WAS NEVER IN MY BLOOD TO TOTALLY SAY GOODBYE
SO IT'S BACK TO CHICAGO FOR THANKSGIVING AGAIN
BACK FOR THANKSGIVING AND OCTOBER AGAIN


CHORUS 3: (St Valentines Day)

Cm7 (Cascade down) Fmaj7 (Rockabilly)

BACK IN ILLINOIS FOR ST. VALENTINES DAY AGAIN
MEMORIES OF CAPONE'S MASSACRE LINGER IN THE SKY
I HEAR THE SULTRY JAZZ AND I'M FEELING THE BLUES
LOTS OF RED HEARTS AND CARDS TO MIX WITH THE RYE
SO GOOD TO BE BACK IN CHICAGO AGAIN
YEAH, ST. VALENTINES DAY IN CHICAGO AGAIN

VERSE 3: (ST VALENTINES)

D Fmaj7 C G

VALENTINES MAKES HER A PLACE OF PURE RED
WITH THE CHARM OF YOUNG LOVE IN THE AIR
BUT THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT LIFE HAS AHEAD
IN THIS SPECIAL PLACE THEY CALL THE 'WINDY CITY'
WINDY CITY.....


VERSE 1: (CHRISTMAS)

D Fmaj7 C G

SHE'S COVERED IN SILVER BELLS AND WINTER SNOW
THERE MAY BE JOY BUT IT'S TINGED WITH A SADNESS
MATCHED BY THE LAKES CHILL AS EVERYONE KNOWS
BE AWHILE BEFORE THERE'S WARMTH AND RAINBOWS
RAINBOWS.......

VERSE 2: (Thanksgiving)

D Fmaj7 C G

SPLASHED IN COLORS OF RED, ORANGE AND YELLOW
PEOPLE AND CITY IS ALIVE IN TRADITIONAL THANKS
HEARTS ARE WARM THOUGH THE COLD IS BELOW ZERO
FOREBODING THE WORST TO COME OF WINTERS CHILL
WINTERS CHILL

- Cairo Fred

Wow this was not what I expected, glad I had lyrics to follow. I loved your idea of holiday themes.
Your voice was clear and distinct... This differently a different ride you took me on.Hope this does well for you..

A different take on a Christmas song, I like this. It has a nice chilled vibe and the lyrics are very good, almost like poetry sang over a chilled backing guitar track. I like the vocals, the vocalist has a nice warm tone that suits the song very well. Slight country twang to the delivery and it all works well as a package. Good job.

Very interesting collage. I listened all the way through. Not sophisticated compositionally but has a very distinctive, compelling sound.

I like this song, and would like to give it all excellents, but It could be better. The singing is more spoken than sung, and is like an intimate whisper, almost milld Rap to a steady beat. The lyrics are clever - a bit of history and a lot of not sentimental nostalgia. The song just has not much 'life' in spite of the interesting lyrics and the good idea behind it.
