Say It Ain't So Baseball
Lyrics
SAY IT AIN?T SO BASEBALL

SON, YOU WANT TO KNOW THE BEST PLAYER I EVER SAW?
ONE WHO COULD HIT, FIELD, AND THROW WITHOUT FLAW
THIS MAN WHO HAD A GLOVE WHERE TRIPLES WENT TO DIE
THREW FURTHER AND HIT PURER THAN BABE OR TY

IN THE MOVIE FIELD OF DREAMS HE HAD A GHOSTLY FORM
I SAW HIM PLAY FOR REAL IN HIS WHITE SOX UNIFORM
SHOELESS JOE PLAYED FOR WAYCROSS IN ?TWENTY FIVE
WHEN HE STEPPED ON THE FIELD THE CROWD CAME ALIVE

AT THE END OF THE INNING IF HE CAUGHT THE BALL
HE?D RUN DEEP AND TOUCH THE CENTERFIELD WALL
JOE SHOT THE BALL BACK LIKE A JET IN THE SKY
WAY OVER THE BACKSTOP IT CONTINUED TO FLY

CHORUS

SAY IT AIN?T SO BASEBALL SAY IT AIN?T SO
DON?T DENY THE HALL OF FAME TO SHOELESS JOE
JOE SERVED HIS TIME, NEVER PLAYED PRO BALL
BASEBALL HIT A GRAND SLAM PUT JOE IN THE HALL

JOE PLEADED WITH COMMISKY DON?T MAKE ME PLAY
THEN IT WOULDN?T MATTER WHAT THE GAMBLERS SAY
THE OLD ROMAN SAID NO IT WASN?T GOING TO BE
SHOELESS JOE WAS PLAYING THE REST IS HISTORY


HE THREW OUT FIVE MEN AT HOME AND GAVE THE REDS FITS
HITTING THREE SEVENTY FIVE WITH A RECORD TWELVE HITS
SHOELESS JOE WASN?T GUILTY ON THE FIELD OF PLAY
WHY ISN?T SHOELESS JOE IN THE HALL OF FAME TODAY?

REPEAT CHORUS and fade
