"Born in Chicago" as written by and Nicholas George Gravenites....
Well, I was born in Chicago back in 19 and 41
I was born in Chicago back in 19 and 41
Well, my father told me
Son, you had better get a gun!

Well, my first friend went down when I was 17 years old
Well, my first friend went down when I was 17 years old
Well, there's one thing you can say 'bout that, boy
He got gold

My second friend went down when I was 21 years old
Well, my second friend went down when I was 21 years old
There's one thing you can say 'bout that, boy
He got bread

Well, the blues's all right when there's someone left to play the game
Well, the blues's all right when there's someone left to play the game
All my friends are going
And things just don't seem the same

No, things just don't seem the same, babe
