​Swinging For The Fence

This song is by Billy Dean and appears on the album Let Them Be Little (2005).

Home game
Little league
Bottom of the 9th
It was up to me
The bunt sign
A man on 3rd
Tie the game, Coach?
That's absurd

I made my mind up at the plate
If I see that fast ball
Well, I just might have to swing away

Big deal
So what
I had to take that homerun cut
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the fence

Home girl
Major league
Everybody said she's too good for me
Prom night
She had a date
But I asked her to dance anyway

Then I gave her a kiss on her front porch swing
Then she thought it was funny
When I said, 'Someday I'm gonna buy you a ring'

Big deal
So what
If it takes everything I got
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the fence

Home game
Minor league
She up in the stands
Still pulling for me
The bunt sign
A man on 3rd
I'm looking for that inside curve
But he came hard with his fast ball
Last time I saw-
It was heading out over center-field wall

Yeah!
Big deal
So what
Now they want to pay me a million bucks
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the...

Big deal
So what
I had to take that homerun cut
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the fence

Swinging for the fence
Swinging for the fence
Cold Beer!
Hot dogs!
