Lyrics:My daddy was a cop on the east side of Chicago
Back in the U.S.A. back in the bad old
days

In the heat of a summer night
In the land of the dollar bill
When the town
of Chicago died
And they talk about it still
When a man named Al Capone
Tried to make
that town his own
And he called his gang to war
With the forces of the law

I
heard my mama cry
I heard her pray the night Chicago died
Brother what a night it really
was
Brother what a fight it really was
Glory be!
I heard my mama cry
I heard her
pray the night Chicago died
Brother what a night the people saw
Brother what a fight the
people saw
Yes indeed!

And the sound of the battle rang
Through the streets of
the old east side
'Til the last of the hoodlum gang
Had surrendered up or died
There
was shouting in the street
And the sound of running feet
And I asked someone who
said
"'Bout a hundred cops are dead!"

I heard my mama cry
I heard her pray the
night Chicago died
Brother what a night it really was
Brother what a fight it really
was
Glory be!
I heard my mama cry
I heard her pray the night Chicago
died
Brother what a night the people saw
Brother what a fight the people saw
Yes
indeed!

And ther was no sound at all
But the clock upon the wall
Then the door
burst open wide
And my daddy stepped inside
And he kissed my mama's face
And he
brushed her tears away

The night Chicago died
Na-na na, na-na-na,
na-na-na-na-na
The night Chicago died
Brother what a night the people saw
Brother
what a fight the people saw
Yes indeed!

The night Chicago died
Na-na na,
na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
The night Chicago died
Brother what a night it really
was
Brother what a fight it really was
Glory be!

The night Chicago
died
Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
The night Chicago died
Brother what a night
the people saw
Brother what a fight the people saw
Yes indeed
