I was born in chicago in 1941
I was born in chicago in 1941
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 I can say 'bout that boy
He got bold


Well my second friend went down when i was 21 years of age
Well my second friend went down when i was 21 years of age
Well there is one thing i can say about that boy
He got brave

Well my rules are alright if there's someone left to play the game
Well my rules are alright if there's someone left to play the game
All my friends are going
And things just don't seem the same
Oh things just don't seem the same baby
