The Lyrics

Famous names..
Who used to gangster bang
Did Alcatraz..
Sent up to serve hard time,
And hear the cell doors clang
In Alcatraz..

Bootleg booze,
Hijackin' liquor trucks
Piled up illegal bucks
Till it was, "See ya, Pal" to that Rock of Hell

The Rock,
That's Alcatraz
No one...
Escaped from
Alcatraz, (or so they say)

Days drug on - and nights were extra long
At Alcatraz..
Birdman, named Robert Stroud - sat in the fortress strong,
Called Alcatraz..
Found a way
To make the birds his friend
Tougher cons
Who wouldn't break would bend
Thugs from New York and Cal.,
Some never lived to tell

Al Capone
Would get a special suite
In Alcatraz..
But, no favors for
This mob elite
At Alcatraz..
Not like Atlanta, where
He had hurrah..
In here, his health diminished,
Had dementia..
Chicago, he was Don
But just another con
At Alcatraz..

Gray and grim, still standing,
Out in Frisco Bay,
Is Alcatraz..
Just a tourist sight,
That's all it is today,
Old Alcatraz..
Nights, the ghosts of those old mobsters
Prob'lly dine on steak and lobsters
Tellin' tales, while sea wind wails

'Bout the warden's wife
And how they stood the strife

Great job, I've been to Alcatraz too. It is spooky but you gotta remember that the hardcore types did tme there - mobsters, rapists, hit men, bank robbers, perverts, etc. One thing to note: it was shut down in 1962 and from 1969-1971 the vacant Rock was OCCUPIED by Native Americans protesting their rotten treatment. There's evidence of these protest activities there.
