Chicago Promenade

My door is locked, my debts are paid
I'll do the Chicago promenade
My back was turned I did not see
That shadow climbing up on me

I took my turn at fixing hearts
But that goes bad before it starts
I'm desperate now, I must say
I'll do the Chicago promenade

If I die now before I'm old
My story will be less than told
There's so much more to suffer through
Before I meet again with you

And I've tried so hard and I've been so blind
I thought we could all grieve, one at a time

I lost a friend, it felt like five
A man who wouldn't compromise
I'll think of him on New Year's day
And do the Chicago promenade
