Song lyrics
From Calamity Jane..
Calamity .. Boys chicagees the biggest noise in Illanois..

I just blew in from the windy city
the windy city is mighty purdy
but they aint got what we got
no siree

They got shacks up to seven stories
Never see any mornin' glories
But a step from our doorway
We got 'em for free

They've got those minstrel shows
purdy ladies in the big chapeaux
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 purdy
But they aint got what we got
Im tellin' you boys
We got more life in Deadwood City than in all Illinois

On the street was a dancing feller
all dressed up in a suit a yeller
and the dance that he did there
went something like this.

(does a dance)

Calamity. Whistle

(men start to whistle)

Calamity. More

(they whistle more)
(Calamity does a tap dance)

You shoulda seen me a window shopping
window shopping with eyes a poppin'
at 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 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 oughta
cause a haircut costs a quarter

I just blew in from the windy city
the windy city is mighty purdy
But they aint got what we got
I'm tellin' you boys
I aint a swopping half a Deadwood
for the whole of Illanois

That's far more likely to be 'Cigar stores' (you know, the ones with the wooden indian outside?) than 'Seaguard Stores'. Especially as the received 'wild west' pronounciation of 'cigar' would be 'see-gar' with the sylables equally stressed.
