A Man Named Jed


94 HJY Audio: The Ballad of Jed Lowrie

And a BDD Reader Chimes In with Lowrie Lyrics, Hillbillies-Style, Too...

"Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed A poor minor leaguer, barely kept his family fed, Then one day he was swingin at a pitch, And laced a single to right, that clutch son of a bitch!

RBI that is, playoff gold, Red Sox Nation glee.

Well the first thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire, Kinfolk said
"Jed move away from there"
Said "Fenway Park is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

Massachusetts, that is. Yuppies, dinks.

Well now its time to say goodbye to Jed and all his friends.
And they would like to thank you folks fer comin to the Fens.
You're all invited back a gain to this locality To watch the Sox crush Tampa Bay in totality

AL pennant that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

Y'all come back now, y'hear? -- To the theme of The Beverly Hillbillies, By Mark Foley

"So there's a Hooters here, I went to Hooters the other day in Beijing. I've been to probably 250 Hooters across the country and world. It's the only Hooters I've ever been to that didn't have any Bud Light or blonds. I was very disappointed." -- 8.11.08, Craig Sager, in the DCSportsBlog
