I Used To Work In Chicago

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Robert Hunter sang this fragment in a performance on 5 April 2003.

I used to work in Chicago
In a department store
I used to work in Chicago
I did, but I don't any more

I used to work in Chicago
In the cake department
A woman came in, she asked for a cake
I asked her what kind she adored
"Layer" she said, lay her I did
I can't work there any more

I used to work in Chicago
In a department store
I used to work in Chicago
I did, but I don't any more

I used to work in Chicago
In the tyre department
A woman came in, she asked for some tyres
I asked her what kind she adored
"Rubber" she said, what else could I do
I don't work there any more
