Lyrics

LOUIS SOCKALEXIS


CHORUS

LOUIS SOCKALEXIS OF THE PENOBSCOT NATION
WAS A TURN OF THE CENTURY SPORTS SENSATION
THE FIRST TO MAKE THE HOLY CROSS SPORT?S HALL
THE NATION?S BEST COLLEGE PLAYER OF THEM ALL

IN HIS LAST YEAR THERE HE HIT FOUR FORTY FOUR
GOD GAVE HIM THE TALENT TO DO EVEN MORE
DID HE SMASH 600 FOOT HOMERS? COULD THAT BE TRUE?
LOUIS SOCKALEXIS A LEGEND THROUGH AND THROUGH

IN THE DEAD BALL ERA HE BELTED TITANIC BLOWS
BEYOND THE BASEBALL FIELD THRU FOURTH STORY WINDOWS
HE THREW STRIKES TO THE CATCHER 400 FEET AWAY
IF RUNNERS TRIED TO SCORE LOUIS MADE THEM PAY

REPEAT CHORUS

NOT THE FIRST NATIVE AMERICAN TO MAKE IT TO THE MAJORS
BUT THE FIRST TO HEADLINE THE NATION'S SPORTS PAGES
HE BLAZED LIKE A COMET ACROSS THE BASEBALL SKY
TO HALL OF FAMERS LOUIS WAS A MARVEL TO THE EYE

THE IMMORTAL JOHN McGRAW SURELY SPOKE THE TRUTH
HE COULD'VE BEEN BETTER THAN TY COBB, WAGNER OR RUTH
HE NOT ONLY INSPIRED HE WAS FRANK MERRIWELL
LOUIS WAS MYTH COME TO LIFE UNTIL HE FELL

FOR THOUGH FASTER THAN THE FLEET FOOTED COBB
LOUIS COULDN'T OUTRUN HIMSELF OR BASEBALL?S MOB
FANS HOUNDED HIM WITH WAR HOOPS IN EVERY CITY
THE BEATING OF THEIR DRUMS LEFT HIM NO PITY

REPEAT CHORUS

BLACKS WERE BARRED BUT THEY HAD A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN
LOUIS PLAYED IN THE WHITE MAN'S MAJORS ALL ALONE
HOW MANY WAR HOOPS PIERCED HIS HEART?
HOW MANY CARTOONS TORE HIM APART?



THOUGH THERE WAS MUCH WONDER IN LOUIS' LIFE
THE PAIN INSIDE AND OUT CUT HIM LIKE A KNIFE
SOON THIS CYCLONE OF FAME WHIRRLED HIM OUT WITH THE RAIN
BACK TO THE LAND HE LOVED, HE DIED IN THE WOODS OF MAINE

REPEAT TAGLINE AND FADE

MANY ASK WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WHEN SPEAKING OF HIS NAME
LOUIS LIVES IN HIS PEOPLE?S HEART. THE TRUE HALL OF FAME
