INTRO SOLO

East Chicago, is my native home
East Chicago is my native home
Going to Chicago, peoples, and it won't be long

My babe, she don't mean me no good
My babe, she don't mean me no good
She wouldn't give me a nickel, now people, if she could

I was in Chicago, I had my good rags on
I was to Chicago, I had my good rags on
Now I'm in this town, got all my zoot suits in pawn

SOLO (Spoken: Play 'em, boy, play 'em. Make me think about East Chicago, oh, to be back in East Chicago. Somebody up in East Chicago, didn't you know 'er?

East Chicago's on fire, East St. Louis is burning down
East Chicago's on fire, East St. Louis is burning down
All you St. Louis women can run into my hometown

My babe, she don't treat me good no more
My babe, she don't treat me good no more
Gonna pack my grip, up the road I'll go
