I will admit it.

About 2 weeks ago when I first heard this song, I teared up.  It’s a tremendous song.  It’s one of those that will be played at the funerals of many coaches for a long, long time.

Country star Kenny Chesney is a big football fan.  His song “Boys of Fall” is another tremendous reflection of high school football in America.

Read the lyrics here.

“Coach”

We loved some, and we fought some
We won some, and we lost some
We were awful, we were awesome
Weren’t we COACH?
We worked hard then we were lazy
We were heroes, we were babies
Made you proud then drove you crazy
Didn’t we COACH?All those mottos
All those reasons
All those rhymes
The stay priceless
They come right back
Right on timeYou were a teacher, a preacher
A mother, a father
A lot less taker than giver
A keeper of secrets
And constantly making
Believers outta quitters
For all of your time
And your heart and your soul
You deserve a lot more than a toast
But here’s to you, and thanks again
We’ll never forget you COACH!The papers loved to hate you
Wasn’t worth near what they paid you
But it never seemed to phase you
Did it COACH?And those fans could be fair weather
But you kept us all together
Found a way to make us better
Somehow COACH

You’re door was always open
Rain or shine
All those hats you wore
Will always blow my mind

You were a teacher, a preacher
A mother, a father
A lot less taker than giver
A keeper of secrets
And constantly making
Believers outta quitters
For all of your time
And your heart and your soul
You deserve a lot more than a toast
But here’s to you, and thanks again
We’ll never forget you COACH!

For all of your time
And your heart and your soul
You deserve a lot more than a toast
But here’s to you, and thanks again
We’ll love you and we’ll hold you in
Our hearts there with
The things that matter most
We’ll never forget you COACH

Oh god bless you, COACH
We’ll never forget you COACH
We’ll never forget you COACH

Give it a listen here!  Thank you Kenny, thank you coaches!
