Lyrics

Touch down in O’Hare, my last stop city, I’ve got one last care
I got some help to pay my fare, caught the train, got off at Logan Square
Enchilada and local beer, sitting at this bar I recall just why I’m here
I consult my second brain, to see if my destination’s near

Char Dham, Jerusalem
Don’t need either of them when I’m in Chicago

Walk Milwaukee Avenue, grab a coffee and I buy a record or two
You drove this road a thousand times, I’ll walk it once to savour all that passes by
Turn right and start again, my journey’s far from over kind of hope it never ends
Thrift shop, corner stop, turn around, look aloft
What else could I do in Chicago

Mecca, Kanwar
My journey afar, well it’s to Chicago, Chicago

What else could I do in Chicago
What else could I do in Chicago
What else could I do in Chicago
What else could I do in Chicago

Eat at D’Candela, I suppose you get your drugs from that Walgreens
I scout around out of sight, it’s not my ambition to be seen
Four pale brick walls, some might say not really much to see
But the magic from up above, well it’s inspired many just like me

Mashad, Maherabad
Oh I’m so glad, to be in Chicago
Chicago
Oh I’m in Chicago
Chicago

What else could I do in Chicago
