Story Behind the Song

Sad end to a great career

Lyrics

Arnold Palmer

Stopped off at Pebble Beach one day
Got a drink up at the first tee
It was right next door to the 18th hole
Spectators quiet as they could be

I'd been driving down the coast for some time
Glad to get some kind of break
My upset stomach had been out of line
Didn't know how much more I could take

Pre Chorus (Spoken)

My gut got more and more nervous
A thundering came to the surface
The IBS came to its head
Like something from "Dawn Of The Dead"........



Chorus


I spoiled Arnie's finale on the Senior Tour
And denied him a final prize
Been on my conscience , you can be sure
And for that I apologise
This is what happened , guys



Verse


It was Arnie's final round on the Seniors' Tour
And he was playing hole 18
He hit a perfect drive up the fairway
In pole position just off the green

He was about to play a chip towards the hole
My gut erupted like a thunderclap
Arnie sliced his ball way off course
Plunked down in the deepest sand trap






Chorus


I spoiled Arnie's finale on the Senior Tour
And denied him a final prize
Been on my conscience , you can be sure
And for that I apologise
This is what happened next, guys




Verse


It took him 5 more shots before he holed out
The fans erupted with hoots and cheers
But it left him wondering what had just occurred
At the end of his great career

I wished that I'd been swallowed up by the ground
When I ruined Arnold Palmer's last round
But now The King's said his last goodbye
No chance to apologise

Chorus


I spoiled Arnie's finale on the Senior Tour
And denied him a final prize
Been on my conscience , you can be sure
And for that I apologise
I ruined Arnie's finale, guys


Outro (Spoken)


He was distracted by a hellish, ghoulish sound
I ruined Arnold Palmer's last round

If folks had known, I'd have been run right out of town
I ruined Arnold Palmer's last round

I ruined Arnold Palmer's last round

I ruined Arnold Palmer's last round
