City Of Chicago Chords/Lyrics/Chorus 

G         D           Em
In the city if Chicago,
G             D            Bm
As the evening shadows fall,
C                  D              Em
There Are people dreaming,
C            D           Am
Of the hills of Donegal.

City Of Chicago Chords/Lyrics/Verse

Am                C
Eighteen forty - seven
D                              Em
Was the year it all began,
Am                          C
Deadly pains of hunger,
D                                         Em
Drove a million from the land.
Am                                      C
They journeyed not for glory,
D                                  Em
Their motive wasn't greed,
Am                C
A voyage of survival,
D                             Em
Across the stormy sea.

City Of Chicago Chords/Lyrics/Chorus 

G         D           Em
In the city if Chicago,
G             D            Bm
As the evening shadows fall,
C                  D              Em
There Are people dreaming,
C            D           Am
Of the hills of Donegal.

City Of Chicago Chords/Lyrics/Verse

Am                     C
Some of them knew fortune,
D                                  Em
Some of them knew fame,
Am                                  C
More of them knew hardship,
D                                           Em
And died working on the plane.
Am                                               C
They spread throughout the nation,
D                                      Em
They rode the railroad cars,
Am                                        C
Brought their songs and music,
D                                  Em
To ease their lonely hearts.

City Of Chicago Chords/Lyrics/Chorus 

G         D           Em
In the city if Chicago,
G             D            Bm
As the evening shadows fall,
C                  D              Em
There Are people dreaming,
C            D           Am
Of the hills of Donegal.
