Ferlin Husky Lyrics

Sidewalks of Chicago Lyrics
This Levi's that I'm wearin' have been good to me

They just won't admit they're growin' old

Though my shirt's made contract with a gutter now and then

At least it keeps my body from the cold

Thank God the folks back home in Harlan County

Can't see what success has done for me

Would you believe that kids in Harlan High School voted me most likely to successeed

Now I'm walking on the sidewalks of Chicago

If I buy the bread I can't afford the wine

Now I'm walking on the sidewalks of Chicago wishing I had lived some other time

I wasn't here too long before I met her the lady really swept me off my feet

She stayed just long enough for me to love her

And now they're sweepin' me up off the street

My mama thinks I've really hit the big time

She's written every day since I've been gone

She don't know hat 109 East Charlotte is the adress of the West Side Mission Home

Now I'm walking on the sidewalks...
