BALTIMORE CLIPPER

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


       INTRO:  steel scrapes the ice
               like showers of rice
               as the sticks chase the puck
               up the ice, up the ice.

           I.  I don't read the numbers --
               their faces I know.
               the Baltimore Clippers
               move and they flow
               like the wind of freedom.
               newspaper photos
               of out-of-town games,
               autograph books
               that are full of French names...
               wish that I could be them.

      CHORUS:  where have all the heroes gone?
               gone to the majors
               one by one by one.

          II.  a Baltimore Clipper
               I wanted to be.
               but now I am older,
               I have my degree
               and a grey profession.
               now even the veterans
               are younger than me.
               do all the old heroes
               hunger to be
               reliving their obsession?

      CHORUS:  where have all the heroes gone?
               gone to the majors
               one by one by one.
