Lady time fly away I've been thinking 'bout my yesterday Oh, please listen darlin' to my empty prayers Sleep inside my dreams tonight All I need to know tonight are you and my child
Oh, is he a soldier or is he a dreamer? Is he mama's little man? Does he help you when he can? Or does he ask about me?
Just like a soldier boy I been out fighting wars That the world never knows about But I never win them loud There's no crowds around me
But when I get to thinkin' 'bout the old days When love was here to stay I wonder if we'd ever tried Oh, what I'd give to hold him.

"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
