Now It's On To Chicago Pt.1

Now it's on to Chicago,
know my Doom as it nears;
Now it's on to Chicago,
to stand 'gainst those damned fears;
Now it's on to Chicago,
been walkin' many years.

All this time, I been rollin',
my stride, sometimes, stumblin';
All this time, I been rollin',
seein' all a'tumblin';
can't blame a man goin' slow,
hopin' the sky soon clears.

Way back when, when I started,
was, still, so very young;
Way back when, when I started,
too old to bite my tongue;
here I see the city glow,
blurred by my wellin' tears.

I've passed so many things,
most of 'em taught me blues;
I've passed so many things,
I learned a song or two;
in passin', I learnt the flow,
my steps to the next tiers.

Now it's on to Chicago,
know my Doom as it nears;
Now it's on to Chicago,
to stand 'gainst those damned fears;
Now it's on to Chicago,
been walkin' many years.

Lost myself in weariness,
couldn't track no way out;
Lost myself in weariness,
it was then I knew doubt;
but, all that was meant too show,
that loss ain't got no peers.

Can't count the steps I've taken,
I'm still useless with math;
Can't count the steps I've taken,
now, again, found my path;
knowin' how them numbers grow,
debt's ever in arrears.

It's just like my women,
you know I loved 'em all;
iI's just like my women,
all of 'em worth my scrawl;
and if you say it ain't so,
I'll grin away yer jeers.

Now it's on to Chicago,
know my Doom as it nears;
Now it's on to Chicago,
to stand 'gainst those damned fears;
Now it's on to Chicago,
been walkin' many years.
