Mat Kearney – Chicago lyrics
Meet me in Chicago, down by the water line
Step across the gull coast, to my heart into your wine
Maybe Cincinnatti, with the trip in the morning light
Step across the branches I will follow you over the rhine

And it takes one to know one that's what they always said
Waited for the dawn and I've waited for the day
Oh I'm coming on and I'm willing to pray
On a wide open road
On and on and the lights come and go
And everything I might not even know what is the distance
On through the ristance
Singing ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah

Meet me in Portland, roads here and the summer light
See you in the evergreens I will catch you down on the northeast side
Maybe San Diego, moon light at the lowest tide
See you in a shoreline breaker, stepping over my makers line

And it takes one to know one that's what they always said
Waited for the dawn and I've waited for the day
Oh I'm coming on and I'm willing to pray
Step in through haze one more day
On a wide open road
On and on and the lights come and go
And everything I might not even know what is the distance
On through the ristance
Singing ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah

You met me on the back streets
Right there at the end of the line
Where a spark turns into fire
Where a tear turns into life

And it takes one to know one that's what they always said
Waited for the dawn and I've waited for the day
Oh I'm coming on and I'm willing to pray
Step in through haze one more day
On a wide open road
On and on and the lights come and go
And everything I might not even know what is the distance
On through the ristance
Wondering why open road
On and on and the lights come and go
And everything I might not even know what is the distance
On through the ristance
Singing ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah

Meet me in Chicago, down by the water line
Step across the gull coast, step into this heart of mine

    This is absurd! Did you listen to this song once and then type it up. I don't even want to count the things that are wrong. This is not the song Mat Kearney wrote. You have changed several words and that totally changed the meaning of the song. For example: its "gold coast" not "gull coast', its "roast here in the summer light" not "roads here in the summer light, its "thats what they alway SAY" not that's what they always said, I've waited for the dawn not waited for the dawn, Its oh I'm coming low not oh I'm coming on. I could go on but I don't have time to waste on this absurd post. No one has posted a song meaning because you changed the song meaning! Fix it!
