Lyrics

Back in Whitefish Bay
Capo 2

Intro: D A G A D

D A
You and I were walking through town
G A D
It was a snowy night in 1971
D A
A couple of days before Christmas
G A D
I knew it was time to run.

D A
So off we went through the streets
G A D
Passing all kinds of Christmas lights
D A
Running through the ice and snow
G A D
It just was the perfect night.


Chorus

A D
Back in Whitefish Bay
A D
The town just had a way
A D
Of making things okay
G A D
Back in Whitefish Bay

INSTRUMENTAL: D A G A D D A G A D



D A
You and I were walking through town
G A D
It was a summer night in 1972
D A
School had just let out
G A D
Time for me to head out of town.

D A
I knew that I’d see you again
G A D
When I came back another day
D A
It might not be til Christmas time
G A D
And those lights would be shinin’ away


Chorus

A D
Back in Whitefish Bay
A D
The town just had a way
A D
Of making things okay
G A D
Back in Whitefish Bay
