Lyrics
I'm sittin' in Chicago on the thirtieth floor
Lookin' down on the city below
My heart is cold as the wind through the streets
And outside it's starting to snow

Weeks ago I left you in sunny Caroline
Sittin' in our home in the pines
I got a job to do that takes me away from you
But your love still remains on my mind

I'm in love with that girl from that roebuck town
Since I met her she's made my life so sound
She's sweet and she's kind and she's mine all mine
She's the best thing that I'll ever find

The city lights have gone
And the night has brought a storm
And soon I'll be headin' home to you
I can taste your wine
Though it's been a long, long time
No more will I have the Chicago blues

I'm in love with that girl from that roebuck town
Since I met her she's made my life so sound
She's sweet and she's kind and she's mine all mine
She's the best thing that I'll ever find

Look, look around there's snow on the ground
What a cold hard life that I've known
But my love still glows like the city below
Because of all the love she's shown

I'm on a southbound train
Takin' me away from this snow
Takin' me where I really want to go
Out of these chilly winds and havin' no friends
I need the warmth of your sweet lovin' soul

I'm in love with that girl from that roebuck town
Since I met her she's made my life so sound
She's sweet and she's kind and she's mine all mine
She's the best thing that I'll ever find
Got the windy city blues
