Atlantic City

Verse 1

Well they blew up the chicken man in Philly last night
They blew up his house too
Down on the boardwalk they're gettin' ready for a hell of a fight
Gonna see what those racket boys can do
Now there's trouble busin' in from outta state
And the D.A. can't get no relief
Gonna be a rumble out on the promenade
And the gamblin' commission's hangin' on by the skin of its teeth

Chorus

Well now everything dies baby that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty
And meet me tonight in Atlantic City

Verse 2

Well I got a job and tried to put my money away
But I've got debts that no honest man can pay
So I drew what I had from the Central Trust
And I bought us two tickets on that Coast City bus

Chorus

Well now everything dies baby that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty
And meet me tonight in Atlantic City

Bridge

Now our luck may have died and our love may be cold but
With you forever I'll stay
We're goin' out where the sand's turnin' to gold
Put on your stockings, babe
Cause the night's getting cold

Verse 3

Now I been lookin' for a job but it's hard to find
Down here it's just winners and losers
And don't get caught on the wrong side of that line
But I'm tired of comin' out on the losin' end
So last night I met this guy and I'm gonna do a little favor for him

Outro

Everything dies baby that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty
And meet me tonight in Atlantic City
