lyrics

The crooked river was still burning
the steel mills were closing down
our quarterback was intercepted
the raiders took away our crown

winter hung around for April
dirty snowforts into May
seemed wed never see the sunshine
until we heard that fella say

It's a perfect game for lenny barker
a perfect day for my home town
a flower blossomed in a snowbank
picked us up when we were down

a perfect game for lenny barker
a perfect day for my home town
can't you see that broken city
floating ten feet off the ground

sing a song of cellar dwellers
who finally hold their heads up high
when 43 showed the replay
i think i saw my old man cry

bang that tom tom mister adams
Big Rick Manning dont you fall
7000 fans are chanting
the great joe tait he has the call

It's a perfect game for lenny barker
a perfect day for my home town
a flower blossomed in a snowbank
picked us up when we were down

a perfect game for lenny barker
a perfect day for my home town
can't you see that broken city
floating ten feet off the ground

a man from fort knox kentucky
picked us up when we were down
