BALTIMORE CLIPPER

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter



       INTRO:  C - Am - G
               C - Am - G

               G                 C
               steel scrapes the ice
                               Am
               like showers of rice
                                       Em
               as the sticks chase the puck
                                  G
               up the ice, up the ice.


                 C
           I.  I don't read the numbers --
                     Am      G
               their faces I know.
                   D
               the Baltimore Clippers
               Bm            F#m    Em
               move and they flow
               A7               D          F   G
               like the wind of freedom.
               C
               newspaper photos
                  Am          G
               of out-of-town games,
               D
               autograph books
                        Bm             F#m    Em
               that are full of French names...
               A7                D           Dsus4   D
               wish that I could be them.


               G          F#m     A      D
      CHORUS:  where have all the heroes gone?
               G           A  Aadd9
               gone to the majors
               A   Aadd9  A   Aadd9   G
               one by     one by      one.


INSTRUMENTAL:  C - Am - Em - G
(like intro vocal)


                 C
          II.  a Baltimore Clipper
                 Am        G
               I wanted to be.
                   D
               but now I am older,
                 Bm        F#m   Em
               I have my degree
               A7            D          F   G
               and a grey profession.
                   C
               now even the veterans
                   Am           G
               are younger than me.
                  D
               do all the old heroes
               Bm        F#m   Em
               hunger to be
               A7               D         Dsus4   D
               reliving their obsession?


               G          F#m     A      D
      CHORUS:  where have all the heroes gone?
               G           A  Aadd9
               gone to the majors
               A   Aadd9  A   Aadd9   G
               one by     one by      one.


INSTRUMENTAL:  C - Am - G
(like verse)   D - Bm - F#m - Em - A7
               D - Dsus4 - D
