"On A Freezing Chicago Street" as written by and Richard Charles Edwards....
I did a sick, sick thing to my love.
My lack of loyalty, it swallowed her up.
And she cooks me food.
She squirmed and turned like a skeleton key.

She left her man unattended to me.
Don't call me that.
Don't claim you love me
cause you know that ain't true.

And you're finally free
to twist and turn like a skeleton key.

You've gotta let me know.
You've gotta let me know.

I did a horrible thing to that girl.
I bread my misery and drowned it in her.
And she got me high,
And I hardly noticed there were tears in her eyes.

And I miss you less and less everyday.
This stream of whisky helps to wash you away.

And it's clear to see,
You're nothing special.
You're a skeleton key.

You've gotta let me know.
You've gotta let me know.
You've gotta let me know.
You've gotta let me know.

Whooo!

    General Comment"so if your lover should leave don't get too sad
    and don't compose epic poems to win her back
    'cause when your bird has flown, she'll never return home
    though all your life you'll wait she never will return "

    This is amazing.

    General CommentSo potent, so beautiful. It draws so much power from its perfect balance of tension and release. The uplifting, almost folksy melody contrasts with the percussion at just the right moments to evoke a sorrowful yet hopeful emotion- tying flawlessly into the lyrical message.

    Utterly sublime, it's art in the truest sense of the word.
