The Night Chicago Died (La noche que murió Chicago) – Paper Lace

Está canción me hace regresar en el tiempo cuando estaba en 4o. grado de primaria. Esto fue en 1974.
The Night Chicago Died (La noche que murió Chicago), pegó con ganas, se escuchaba bastante en las radios de Guatemala, en Español la versión que conocí fue la que interpretó Mirla Castellanos (estoy en deuda con mi amigazo "Antulio PanzaDeAgua Muñoz" que hace tiempo me pidió la canción "Bombolo" que está al otro lado del 45 R.P.M.), existen más versiones pero esa fue la que más me gustó.

La canción es original del grupo "Paper Lace", originarios de Inglaterra.

The Night Chicago Died
Paper Lace

1974

.
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 there 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….
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….
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….
The night Chicago died……
