 I'm going to Chicago, that's the last place my baby stayed
I'm packing up my bags, I'm going to leave this town right away
I'm going to find that girl if I have to hitch hike around the world

Hitch hike
Hitch hike, baby

Chicago City, that's what the sign on the freeway read
I'm going to keep on going 'til I get to that street that's called 6th and Main                                                                       
I've got to find that girl if I have to hitch hike around the world                                                                                          

Come on, hitch hike, hitch hike children
Hitch hike, hitch hike baby
Hitch hike, hitch hike baby
Come on, hitch hike, hitch hike darling (children)

Hitch hike, baby
Hitch hike, children

I'm going to St. Louis but my next stop just might be LA, that's what I said
I've got no money in my pockets so I'm going to have to hitch hike all the way
            - hitch hike children
I'm going to find that girl if I have to hitch hike around the world

Come on, come on, hitch hike baby, hitch hike children
Hitch hike, hitch hike darling
Come on, hitch hike, hitch hike children
Hitch... hitch hike, hitch hike baby
