....Illinois, home of the Kickapoo Pow Wow,
and a center of business, that's what it is now;
from insurance to Beer Nuts, that all started here,
and Beer Nuts are still made here, if you have a beer.

Abe Lincoln practiced law here in the courts,
and Adlai Stevenson 2nd is still here in sorts,
this is a larger town than most we go to,
maybe we'll hike the Constitution Trail, before we are through.
