chicago bound lyrics – george thorogood & the destroyers

well, i left out of georgia nineteen sixty four
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 nineteen sixty nine
that 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
lady i slept with kept it cherry red
well i left that town, hmm i left that town
when i left st. louis
you know i was chicago bound

i’m gonna tell you something you oughta know
chicago’s the best place i ever know
i’ma stay in this town, i’ma live in this town
chicago’s the place, it’s the baddest place around
