Dan Fogelberg - Illinois


Intro:

C     Dm/C     F/C     C
C     Dm/C     F/C     C



Verse 1:

C         Dm/C
Dusty day dawning
F/C         C
Three hours late
C        Dm/C
Open the curtains
    F/C          C
And let the rest wait.

C            Dm/C   
My mind goes running
      F/C            C
Three thousand miles east
  C            Dm/C
I may miss the harvest
      F/C            C
But I won't miss the feast.



Chorus:

       G                               F
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again
       G                               F
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again
       G                               F
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again
     C   Fm/C    Dm/C     C
Illinois,        Illinois
     C   Fm/C    Dm/C     C
Illinois,        Illinois


Verse 2:

C         Dm/C
South California
     F/C        C
Your sun is too cold
    C              Dm/C
It looks like your hills
          F/C            C
Have been raped of their gold.
C             Dm/C
I should have come out
     F/C         C
When I was first told
C             Dm/C
This lamb has got to
  F/C         C
Return to the fold.



Chorus:

       G                               F
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again
       G                               F
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again
       G                               F
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again
     C   Fm/C    Dm/C     C
Illinois,        Illinois
     C   Fm/C    Dm/C     C
Illinois,        I'm your boy.


Solo:

C   Dm/C    F/C     C
C   Dm/C    F/C     C


Verse 3:

C           Dm/C
Flat on the prairies
F/C         C
Soil and stone
C             Dm/C
Stretching forever
F/C       C
Taking me home
       C          Dm/C
'Cause I've got a woman
    F/C          C
Who waits for me there
    C        Dm/C
And I need a breath of that
F/C           C
Sweet country air.



Chorus:

       G                               F
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again
       G                               F
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again
       G                               F
And it looks like you're gonna have to see me again
     C   Fm/C    Dm/C     C
Illinois,        Illinois
     C   Fm/C    Dm/C     C
Illinois,        Illinois
     C   Fm/C    Dm/C     C
Illinois,        Illinois
     C   Fm/C    Dm/C     C
Illinois,        I'm your boy
