Daddy was a cop,
on the east side of Chicago.
Back in the U.S.A.,
back in the bad old days.

                          Gm  F   C7                        F
In the heat of the summer night,  in the land of the dollar bill.

                         Gm F   C7                     F
when the town of Chicago died,  and they talk about it still.

                      Gm              C7                 F
When a man named Al Capone,  tried to make that town his own,

                          Gm            C7            F
and he called his gang to war,  with the forces of the law.

           F                                     Gm
I heard my mama cry,  I heard her pray the night Chicago died.

C7                                  C7
brother what a night it really was, brother what a fight it really was.

F                    F                                    Gm
glory be. I heard my mama cry, i heard her pray the night Chicago died.

C7                                   C7
Brother what a night the people saw, brother what a fight the people saw.

Yes indeed.

                            Gm F   C7                         
And the sound of the battle rang,  through the streets of the old east side.

                             Gm F  C7                    F
till the last of the hoodlem gang, had surrendered up or died.

                          Gm      C7                       F
there was shouting in the street, and the sound of running feet,

                        Gm    C7                        F
and I asked someone who said, about a hundered cops are dead.


                           Gm F  C7                      F
Then there was no sound at all,  but the clock up on the wall.

                         Gm F   C7                     F
Then the door burst open wide,  and my daddy stepped inside,

                        Gm    C7                       F
and he kissed my mama's face, and he brushed her tears away,

          F                       F
the night Chicago died. the night Chicago died.

(Chorus)(3 times)
