The Lyrics

This is a tribute to the Chicago suburb of Evanston, Illinois
Evanston, oh Evanston,
I still hear your lake winds blowin'
And the eastern sunrise glowin'
The Purple Line takes you to Evanston

Evanston, oh Evanston,
I still hear your lake winds blowin'
Purple waves of pure emotion
I watch the game and dream of Evanston

I still see NU right on the lakefront
Standing there lookin' out to sea
And as Chicago waits for me
On the beach where we used to run

Evanston, oh Evanston,
I am so afraid of losing
Before the oak leaves change the colors
Before I watch the oak leaves flying in the wind
At Evanston, At Evanston,
