I remember when baseball was everything
It was little league, but what a big game
There were two men on and one man out
I got a fastball hanging outside
I swung that bat with all my might
And the ball was gone
They say I knocked the cover off
It was the only homer that I ever had
You should of seen my dad

[Chorus]
And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me
As long as I'm holding on
Heaven wouldn't ask it of me
The devil on a good day ain't that strong
I'm keeping it here inside me
As long as I live and breathe
The ball was soaring and the crowd was roaring
And there ain't nobody gonna take that from me

I was nineteen, it was a good job
Moving TV's on a loading dock
Till 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

[Chorus]

And sometimes it feels like
My best years are behind me
Then somehow, out of nowhere
Something sneaks up to remind me
Like this morning, I woke up
To a little voice that spoke up
Saying, "daddy, please
Fix a bowl of rice krispies
You're the bestest friend that I ever had
You know I love you dad"

[Chorus]
