Lyrics
[v]

I saw her in a cocktail lounge
At the lakeshore Ramada In
The way she dressed
She was way out of my league
but when our eyes connected
We both found something we needed
On a lonely Windy City Summer night
[c]

One night in Chicago
On a Sultry Labor Day
Our wedding rings were flashing
Like Sunlight on the lake
Her eyes were supernovas
In a sky of velvet sin
she was drinking Vodka Martinis
I was drinking Rye Manhattans
It wasn't supposed to happen
But it did
One night in Chicago
One night in Chicago
---

[v]
Her husband was at a Union Hall
speaking in Detroit
I was going
to a gig outside Des Moines.
She wanted to escape the pressure
of being an administrator
just feel like a woman for a night


[c]

[b]
Sometimes I see her on the news
Elegant and looking fine
Her husband and her daughters by her side.
And I think that in a certain light
That little girl
seems to have my eyes
[c]
