Pitchin' Day

© E. Patrick Johnson
August 2005

You know it's a goodtime with seldom seen friends
Just pass away the day on a long weekend
No better time, No better place
In my back yard, there is a space
Gonna work out my blues
Over a game of horseshoes


A double ringer is what you want but a leaner is what you'll get
A lot more practice is what we need nobody's placing bets
Wind up for the toss keep your eye on the stake
It's all in the delivery, man
Lets end this game with a handshake
It's alright, It's okay come over man it's a pitchin' day


You can have your golf
You can play base, foot or basket ball
I don't really give a damn
Just get the shoes off the wall
40 feet from peg to peg
That shoe weighs 2 lbs 8 oz, and you cleared the hedge
It's alright, It's okay come over man it's a pitchin' day


A little practice you can throw that thing
A little more you might hear it ring
Across the street, across the hood
Don't you know you really should
Work out your blues
Over a game of horseshoes
And maybe a couple of brews
