Music Monday: "Home Run"

Memorial Day to us always means attending the local college world series tournament. We've been attending each week of Memorial Day for years, we love it! It is almost like major league baseball to us-- thousands of local friends, family and fans show up for the games.
My daughter and her cousin at the tournament in 2003

We made a CD of songs to play when we go to and from the games, and baseball songs that we like. One such song is called "Home Run" by Geoff Moore.

Home Run
(really long intro)
PLAY BALL!!
(more intro)

The lights go on, another game day 
I grabbed my bat, I'm headed for the plate
but the first pitch was a curve, and I was done!

(umpire) STRIKE ONE!

stepped out of the box, looked the pitcher in the eye
you could read his lips, they poked your mind.
So I gave my way and said, "let's see what you can do"

(umpire) STRIKE TWO!

Gotta keep my eye on the ball, swing straight and true and follow through.
Don't be afraid, what-ever the call!
Because we're never alone, our coach is there to cheer us on.
well, it's the wind-up,
here comes that ball,
You got a brilliant swing, watch it till, it's goin, goin, it's gone!

ho, ohho, ohh, oh,
ho, ohho, ohh, oh, 
ho, ohho, ohh, home run

ho, ohho, ohh, oh,
ho, ohho, ohh, oh, 
ho, ohho, i need a home run!

you know life can be like a baseball game, 
We're on the same team, but were not all the same.
That's why we've got to learn to play together.

I didn't join this team to sit on the bench, 
I'm goin deep, swingin for the fence.
I got some friends on base, I gotta get home!

Gotta keep your eye on the ball
swing straight and through, and follow through.
Don't be afraid, what-ever the call.
Because we're never alone,
Our coach is there to cheer us on.

Well it's the wind-up, 
Here come's that ball,
You got a brilliant swing,
Watch it till it's goin goin, it's gone!
come on!

ho, ohho, ohh, oh,
ho, ohho, ohh, oh, 
ho, ohho, ohh, home run!
i want a home run

ho, ohho, ohh, oh,
ho, ohho, ohh, oh, 
ho, ohho, i want a home run!

We are not the first to play this game, 
or stand over this plate.
We are surrounded by the legacy.
and the're sittin in the stands,
I see them wavin their hands.
sayin, "go, go all the way!"

(umpire) it's goin, it's going it's going, 
it's outta here! that baby is gone (gone)

Come on now, 

ho, ohho, ohh, oh,
ho, ohho, ohh, oh, 
ho, ohho, ohh, home run

ho, ohho, ohh, oh,
ho, ohho, ohh, oh, 
ho, ohho, ohh, home run

are you ready? come on!

(different variation's may vary from this point on.)

ho, ohho, ohh, oh,
ho, ohho, ohh, oh, 
ho, ohho, ohh, home run

ho, ohho, ohh, oh,
ho, ohho, ohh, oh, 
ho, ohho, ohh, home run
(repeat)

ho, ohho, ohh, oh,
ho, ohho, ohh, oh, 
ho, ohho, I
 want a home run!
