SIDEWALKS OF CHICAGO (Dave Kirby) Porter Wagoner - 1970 Merle Haggard - 1970 Del Reeves - 1971 Ferlin Husky - 1971 Hmmm, the Levis that I'm wearing have been good to me They just won't admit they're growing old And though my shirt's made contact with a gutter now and then At least it keeps my body from the cold Thank God folks back home in Harlan County Can't see what success has done for me Would you believe the kids in Harlan High School Voted me most likely to succeed Now I'm walkin' on the sidewalks of Chicago If I buy the bread, I can't afford the wine Now I'm walkin' on the sidewalks of Chicago Wishing I had lived some other time I wasn't here too long before I met her And the lady, she really swept me off my feet And she stayed just long enough to make me 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 But she doesn't know that 109 West Charlotte Is the address of the West Side Mission Home Now I'm walkin' on the sidewalks of Chicago If I buy the bread, I can't afford the wine Now I'm walkin' on the sidewalks of Chicago Wishing I had lived some other time (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2012)
