Although he is often credited as the songwriter, several songs have been identified as precedents. Numerous artists have interpreted the song in a variety of styles. Five of Chicago's professional sports teams have played the song at their games in one form or another. If anybody don't believe I've got a Red Cross man Go out in my back yard to get my Red Cross can Oh, baby don't don't you want to go, go with me and my man down to the Red Cross Store . And it's hey, hey baby, baby don't you want to go Back to that eleven light city, back to sweet Kokomo . In , Jabo Williams recorded "Ko Ko Mo Blues," with the same refrain, but included a counting line: "One and two is three, four and five and six". But I'm cryin' hey baby, Honey don't you want to go Back to the land of California, to my sweet home Chicago . Johnson sang this as the first verse and used it as the refrain. Otherwise, his verses retained the structure of Arnold's recording, with similar counting verses. Johnson succeeded in evoking an exotic modern place, far from the South, which is an amalgam of famous migration goals for African Americans leaving the South.

While Rhett Miller seems to always be penning songs of love and heartbreak, he earns bonus points for lyrics about making out and breaking up on the train She's Babs up and down on Belmont right by the train.
