Chicago

There is a place not far from here
A place that I must go
A place to escape all my troubles
The city of Chicago

The place I am right now
Is quite simply a living hell
But I never went to Chicago
So i guess it may be as well

But from What I've heard
It's a very exciting spot
And the place I am right now
Most definitely is not

I need to leave this aria
And I have to make it there
To create a brand new life for myself
And find a person who will care

Yes, I must go to Chicago
To get away from all my deceptions
For I have lead good people to believe
My many misconceptions

Chicago

Home is where the heart is
Right?
If its true
Why am I so uncomfortable here?
This is my home
I have a house here
And I love my friends here
So why do i feel so out of place?
I miss Chicago
And I miss my house there
And I miss my friends there
I felt whole there.
I miss the sounds of Chicago
And I miss when people 
Yell at each other in traffic
I may be older
But my wounds haven't healed
My heart is missing here
Because my home
Is in Chicago.

One Sided Love

They are parted by the ocean and he has not seen her for some while
And poor lovesick John feels lonely and he pines for Mary Doyle
And he never will forget her with blue eyes and raven hair
And he constantly dream of her she has got him in love's snare

It's a long, long way from Ireland near five thousand miles away
From the village by the mountain and the fields of Ballybay
To the city of Chicago in distant U.S.A.
And though Johnny pines for Mary in old Ireland he will stay.

Mean while Mary in Chicago has been having a great time
Wined and dined by a wealthy Yankee many years beyond his prime
And she's forgotten all about Johnny and to him doesn't even write
He is just a peasant fellow out of mind and out of sight.

Money speaks all kinds of languages wise men have been known to say
And Mary spare no thought for Johnny never loved him anyway
And he drives his father's tractor around the farm at Ballybay
Thinking of a dark haired woman in Chicago U.S.A.

Real Estate News

ARMOUR AVENUE was the name of this street and door signs on empty houses read 'The Silver Dollar,' 'Swede Annie' and the Christian names of madams such as 'Myrtle' and 'Jenny.'
Scrap iron, rags and bottles fill the front rooms hither and yon and signs in Yiddish say Abe Kaplan & Co. are running junk shops in **** houses of former times.
The segregated district, the Tenderloin, is here no more; the red-lights are gone; the ring of shovels handling scrap iron replaces the banging of pianos and the bawling songs of pimps.Chicago, 1915.
