    Lyrics

    Well they blew up the chicken man in Philly last
    Night now they blew up his house too
    Down on the boardwalk they're gettin' ready
    For a fight gonna see what them 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]
    Everything dies baby that's a fact
    But maybe everything that dies someday comes back
    Put your makeup on fix your hair up pretty and
    Meet me tonight in Atlantic City

    Well I got a job and tried to put my money away
    But I got in too deep and I could not pay
    So I drew what I had from the Central Trust
    And I bough us two tickets on that Coast City bus

    [Chorus]

    Now our luck may have died and out love may
    Be cold but with you forever I'll stay
    We're goin' out where the sand's turnin' to gold
    So put on your stockin's 'cause the night's getting'
    cold and maybe everything dies
    That's a fact but maybe everything that dies
    Someday comes back

    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
    Well I'm tired of comin' out on the losin' end
    So honey last night I met this guy and I'm
    Gonna do a little favor for him
    Well I guess everything dies baby that's a fact
    But maybe everything that dies someday
    Comes back
    Put your makeup on fix your hair up pretty and
    Meet me tonight in Atlantic City
