Sorry that I couldn’t find the Ernestine Anderson version of this, which is my favorite. (“Ain’t nothin’ in Chicago for a sweet little boy like you to do,” sez she.) Apart from his preamble, I do like this Joe Williams version as my second favorite.
As you read these words, I will either be en route to this fine town, or milling about in a hotel there with about a thousand other women bloggeristas. Will report when/if possible.
