Lyrics

<p><strong>Back in Whitefish Bay</strong></p>
<p>You and I were walking through town</p>
<p>It was a snowy night in 1971</p>
<p>A couple of days before Christmas</p>
<p>I knew it was time to run.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>So off we went through the streets</p>
<p>Passing all kinds of Christmas lights</p>
<p>Running through the ice and snow</p>
<p>It just was the perfect night.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong><em>Chorus</em>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p><strong>Back in Whitefish Bay</strong></p>
<p><strong>The town just had a way</strong></p>
<p><strong>Of making things okay</strong></p>
<p><strong>Back in Whitefish Bay</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>You and I were walking through town</p>
<p>It was a summer night in 1972</p>
<p>School had just let out</p>
<p>Time for me to head out of town.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>I knew that I&rsquo;d see you again</p>
<p>When I came back another day</p>
<p>It might not be til Christmas time</p>
<p>And those lights would be shinin&rsquo; away</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p><em><strong>Chorus&nbsp; </strong></em></p>
<p><strong>Back in Whitefish Bay</strong></p>
<p><strong>The town just had a way</strong></p>
<p><strong>Of making things okay</strong></p>
<p><strong>Back in Whitefish Bay</strong></p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
