EVERYBODY loved Chick Lorimer in our town.

 Far off

 Everybody loved her.

So we all love a wild girl keeping a hold

On a dream she wants.

Nobody knows now where Chick Lorimer went.

Nobody knows why she packed her trunk . . . a few

 old things

And is gone,

 Gone with her little chin

 Thrust ahead of her

 And her soft hair blowing careless

 From under a wide hat,

Dancer, singer, a laughing passionate lover.
Were there ten men or a hundred hunting Chick?
Were there five men or fifty with aching hearts?

 Everybody loved Chick Lorimer.

 Nobody knows where she's gone.
