Song by Paper Lace<br /><br>

In the heat of a summer night<br>

In the land of the dollar bill<br>

When the town of Chicago died<br>

And they talk about it still<br>

<br>

When a man named Al Capone<br>

Tried to make that town his own<br>

And he called his gang to war<br>

With the forces of the law<br>

<br>

I heard my mama cry<br>

I heard her pray the night Chicago died<br>

Brother what a night it really was<br>

Brother what a fight it really was<br>

Glory be<br>

<br>

I heard my mama cry<br>

I heard her pray the night Chicago died<br>

Brother what a night the people saw<br>

Brother what a fight the people saw<br>

Yes indeed<br>

<br>

And the sound of the battle rang<br>

Through the streets of the old east side<br>

'Til the last of the hoodlum gang<br>

Had surrendered up or died<br>

<br>

There was shouting in the street<br>

And the sound of running feet<br>

And I asked someone who said<br>

Bout a hundred cops are dead<br>

<br>

I heard my mama cry<br>

I heard her pray the night Chicago died<br>

Brother what a night it really was<br>

Brother what a fight it really was<br>

Glory be!<br>

<br>

I heard my mama cry<br>

I heard her pray the night Chicago died<br>

Brother what a night the people saw<br>

Brother what a fight the people saw<br>

Yes indeed<br>

<br>

And ther was no sound at all<br>

But the clock upon the wall<br>

Then the door burst open wide<br>

And my daddy stepped inside<br>

And he kissed my mama's face<br>

And he brushed her tears away<br>

<br>

The night Chicago died<br>

The night Chicago died<br>

Brother what a night the people saw<br>

Brother what a fight the people saw<br>

Yes indeed<br>

<br>

The night Chicago died<br>

The night Chicago died<br>

Brother what a night it really was<br>

Brother what a fight it really was<br>

Glory be<br>

<br>

The night Chicago died<br>

The night Chicago died<br>

Brother what a night the people saw<br>

Brother what a fight the people saw<br>

Yes indeed<br>

<br>
