I remember when baseball was everything
It was Little League, what a big game
There were two men on and one man out

I got a fastball hangin' outside
I swung that bat with all my might
And ball was gone

They say I knocked the cover off
Was the only homer that I ever had
Should've seen my dad

And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me
As long as I'm holdin' on
Heaven wouldn't ask it of me
Devil on a good day ain't that strong

Well, I'm keepin' it here inside of me
As long as I live and breathe
The ball was soarin' and the crowd was roarin'
And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me

I was nineteen, it was a good job
Movin' TV's on a loading dock
'Til the boss said, "Son
Try to lose every seventh one"

"I got it worked out with a good friend
Keep your mouth shut and we'll cut you in
Now what do you say?"

"Don't you want to be rich one day?"
I lost a real good job that night
But I kept my pride

And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me
As long as I'm holdin' on
Heaven wouldn't ask it of me
The Devil on a good day ain't that strong

Well, I'm keepin' it here inside of me
As long as I live and breathe
I said goodbye with my head held high
And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me

And sometimes it feels like
My best years are behind me
Then somehow, out of nowhere
Something sneaks up to remind me

Like this mornin', I woke up to a little voice that spoke up
Sayin', "Daddy, please, fix a bowl of Rice Krispies
You're the bestest friend that I ever had
Oh, I love you, Dad"

And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me
As long as I'm holdin' on
Heaven wouldn't ask it of me
The Devil on a good day ain't that strong

Well, I'm keepin' it here inside me
As long as I live and breathe
I got more than I ever asked for
And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me

Nobody
