The Lyrics

Not sure about the opening 3 lines
They laid their bets
On the Southside Of Chicago
It was the beginning of a very hazy night

Went to a party late last night
At a place just over the hill
A place where I almost cried
And they talk about it still

I had drivin' into town
My smile turned upside down
And before we started a war
I showed her to the door
And then I gave a sigh

It was the night I almost cried
Brother, what a night it really was
Brother, what a fight it really was

Mercy Me

And then I sighed once more
It was the night that I almost cried
Brother, what a sight the people saw
Brother, what a fight the people saw

Mercy Me

And the sound of her voice still rang
In the recesses of my mind
Til the last of it had gone.......
Then I started up again

There was shouting in the streets
And the sound of running feet
Then I opened up the door
Couldn't believe who was standing there

The Night I almost cried
I had to just give a sigh
It was the night I almost cried
Brother, what a night it really was
Brother what a sight it really was

For Me

I gave another sigh
It was the Night I almost cried
Brother, what a night it really was
Brother, what a fight the people saw

Glory be

Then there was no sound at all
'Cept the tick tocking on the wall
Then a door burst open wide
And my sweetie was stepped inside
And she kissed my gleefull face
And brushed my fears away

The Night I almost cried
Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na
The Night I almost cried
Brother, what a sight the people saw
Brother, what a fight the people saw

Yes, indeed

The Night I almost cried
Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na
The night I almost cried
Brother, what a fight it really was
Brother, what a sight it really was

Mercy me
