Doris Day - Just Blew In From The Windy City Lyrics




The windy city is mighty pretty
But they ain't got what we got, no sirree
They've got shacks up to seven stories
Never see any Morning Glory's
But a step from our doorway
We got 'em for free

They've got those minstrel shows
Pretty ladies in the big chateau's
Private lawns, public parks
For the sake of civic virtue
They've got fountains there that squirt you

I just blew in from the windy city
The windy city is mighty pretty
But they ain't got what we got
I'm tellin' ya, boys
We got more life in Deadwood City
Than in all of Illinois

You should-a seen me a-windo' shoppin'
A-windo' shoppin' with eyes a-poppin'
At the sights that you see there, yes sirree
Press a bell and a moment later
Up you go in an elevator
Just as fast as a polecat a-climbin' a tree

I heard claim hundreds came
To a thing they call a baseball game
Cigar stores, revolving doors
They got new inventions coming
'Stead of outdoor, indoor plumbing

I just blew in from the windy city
The windy city is mighty pretty
But they ain't got what we got
I'm tellin' ya, boys
I ain't a-swappin' half of Deadwood
For the whole of Illinois

Doris Day Just Blew In From The Windy City Comments
  1. Rianne Voet

    Alix, I had the same, wanting to be Calamilty Jane when I was young. I think she was a feminist role model for me. one of the few that were available on television...

  2. Buffalo 66

    Wow what a voice a fantastic talent a wonderful beautiful human being from the golden age now gone. May she rest in peace ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  3. peterah7957

    Used to watch this with my granny Everytime I would visit...timeless classic

  4. Kino

    2:16 today their would be like 20 wires attached and invisible green screen stunt men lifting her up

  5. Alexandra Alberti

    I just blew in from the windy city
    The windy city is mighty purty
    But they ain't got what we got, no sirree
    They got shacks up to seven storeys
    Never see any morning glories
    But a step from our doorway
    We got 'em fer free

    They've got those minstrel shows
    Purty ladies in the big chapeaus
    Private lawns, public parks
    For the sake of civic virtue
    They've got fountains there that squirt you

    I just blew in from the windy city
    The windy city is mighty purty
    But they ain't got what we got.
    I'm telling you, boys,
    We got more life in Deadwood city than in all of Illinois!

    On the street was a dancin' feller
    All dressed up in a suit of yeller
    Aand the dance that he did there
    Went somethin' like this...

    Whistle! (whistling) More!

    (Dance Interlude)

    You shoulda seen me a-winder shopping
    A-winder shopping with eyes a-poppin'
    At the sights that you see there, yes sirree!

    Press a bell and a moment later
    Up you go in an elevator
    Just as fast as a polecat a-climbin' a tree

    I heard claim hundreds came
    To a thing they call a baseball game!
    Cigar stores, revolving doors
    Men wear sideburns and they oughter
    'Cause a haircut costs a quarter

    I just blew in from the windy city,
    The windy city is mighty purty
    But they ain't got what we got.
    I'm tellin' ya, boys
    I ain't a-swappin' half of Deadwood for the whole of Illinois!

    Calamity Jane songs

  7. JoMac

    At a time when celebrities had to have at least an iota of talent, today the completely untalented can get a run eg Kim Kardashian

  8. LuciusEsox1

    My second love, my first was Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins. I was about 8..... :)

  9. Anne Ott

    I saw this as a teen ager and I wanted to be her...in the movies and sing my heart out!! She did this so well, Anything she did was perfect. But, this movie stands out to me because it made such an impression on me

  10. Ianzweb

    Center stage

  11. Xavier Cho

    This reminds me so much of Annie Get Your Gun in many ways. Considering it was such a bit hit which was released just 3 years ago, maybe it was not a coincidence. But I have to admit that Doris hold her own in this sequence.

  12. Robert Pollock

    Tho one and only Doris RIP

  13. Booker DeWitt

    An now Chiraq is the murder capital of the country.

  14. William Perrigo

    When i watched her movies i wanted to be her leading man and her at the same time! That’s how good she was!

    Belinda van der Plaat

    Indeed!

  15. Emmanuel Viala

    The best ever in Technicolor! Emmanuel from Paris France, what an historical performance! No words!

  16. Burrrnet

    OH THE MEMORY'S

  17. Robert Price

    How marvellous that Doris puts so much energy and charm into her film roles. This routine was flawless despite its undoubted difficulties. So athletic and seamless. Nobody comes near her commitment. Maybe gone but certainly not forgotten. RIP dear Doris.

  18. ALAN GRANVILLE

    She is incomparable as Calamity and i can't think of anyone who could get anywhere near her level. As a direct contrast she was magnificent in "Love Me or Leave Me" opposite the great James Cagney.

  19. Emmanuel Viala

    So much moderne way! Thanks so much

  20. Emmanuel Viala

    She's the greatest!

  21. Specialized 29er

    Wonder if the Windy City had a Baked Bean factory.

    I just blew in from the Windy City
    The Windy City is mighty pretty
    But they ain’t got what we got
    No siree

    They’ve got shacks up to seven stories
    Never see any morning glories
    But a step from my doorway
    We got 'em for free

    They’ve got those minstrel shows
    Pretty lady’s in the big chapeaus
    Private lawns, public parks
    For the sake of civic virtue they’ve got fountains there that squirt you

    I just blew in from the Windy City
    The Windy City is mighty pretty
    But it ain’t got what we got
    I’m telling you boys
    We got more life In Deadwood City then in all of Illinois

    On the street was a dancing feller
    All dressed up in a suit of yeller
    And the dance that he did there
    Went something like this

    ~Dance scene~

    You should a-seen me a- window shopping
    A-window shopping with eyes a-popping
    And the sites that you see there
    Yes siree

    Press a bell and a moment later
    Up you go in an elevator
    Just as fast as a polecat
    A-climbing a tree

    I heard claim, hundreds came
    To a thing they call a baseball game
    Cigar stores
    Revolving doors
    Men wear side-burns and they oughter
    'Cus a hair cut costs a quarter

    I just blew in from the Windy City
    The Windy City is mighty pretty
    But they ain’t got what we got
    I’m telling you boys
    I ain’t a-swapping half of Deadwood
    For the whole of Illinois

I renember when I was maybe 10 or 11, I tried to do that dance she did with salt, and I poured salt all over the floor, 😅, I'm 14 now, and suffer from major anxiety and depression, and still love to watch this when I'm down or sick. R.I.P Doris, never will be forgotten!

    RIP to Ms. Doris Day. True talent and she had a heart of gold. My favorite movie of Doris if I had to choose were The Glass Bottom Boat and Calamity Jane. They sure don't make movie like that anymore😢

  46. Garry Wood

    A DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE FROM DORIS AT 31. IN THE TOP 5 MUSICALS EVER MADE IN MY OPINION.

  47. goanna83

  48. Tom Sparks

    God, she was great.

  49. tulkas 42o

    Someone must have been scorned in chi-town to write this. Chicago has always been full of life since way back before the civil war through Capone and after the political mayhem that still blows hard. Now were known for our sports teams, food, historical ethnic neighborhoods, crazy weather,music, cool ass hard working people. Anywhere in this beloved USA you will find us,someone from Chicago. People never leave Chicago...they take it with them everywhere...always!!!💪

  50. Francelina Camilo

    She was so beautiful and talented rest in peace and continued singing and haven ❤🙏 she never will be forgotten she left behind beautiful memories

  62. Norman Smith

    Her movies were a safe and a wholesome fun for all the family to watch and spend quality time together ..
    I call her The Elegant Mother as she was a mother in most of her movies .. kind, loving and yes Elegant.
    She retired in Carmel, CA where she bought a cute hotel only to allow pets in as other hotels in town were not allowing pets.
    She represented the best in our American culture.
    God bless her soul and accept her in His Mercy and in His Paradise.

  68. JojoChampion

    She utilized every inch of that set. Brilliant.

  69. Pumpup Jam

    In an interview, she said this film Calamity Jane, was her all time favorite. She was a tomboy at heart and wanted to do this part cause it involved jumping and climbing and everything a child wants to do. Now she is asleep in death, Calamity outlived Adelaide Adams by 66 years.
