The Ole Ball Coach Came Down to Georgia

THE OLE BALL COACH CAME DOWN TO GEORGIA
to the tune of “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” by the Charlie Daniels Band

The Ole Ball Coach came down to Georgia,
He was looking for a game to win.
He felt fine, he felt sublime,
Against Georgia he had three wins.
When he came across a Dawg Coach calling plays on a Saturday that was hot,
So the Ball Coach jump up and down like a clown and said, “Boy let me tell you what.”

“I bet you didn’t know it, but I’m the Coach all Dawgs fear,
And if you’ve the gall
To throw the ball
We’ll kick that Aaron Murray in the rear!

“You coach pretty good football, boy, but give the Ole Ball Coach his due,
I’ll have four quarters to play,
But it won’t take all day
To show I’m better than you.”

The coach said, “My name’s Richty, and it won’t be no sin,
Let’s get going,
These Dawgs’ll be showing,
They’re the best they’ve ever been.”

Richty huddle up your team,
And fire up their hearts.
Cause it’s hotter than Hades in Georgia,
And the Ole Ball Coach plays it hard.
And if you win, to Atlanta you may be bond,
But if you lose the Bulldog Nation will run you out of town!

The coin was flipped and the Ole Ball Coach said, “I’ll start this show.”
And static crackled in his headphones as he readied his players to go.
He shouted out his play and his team took the field,
With the entire Dawg Nation worried what it would yield.

When the Gamecocks scored three, Richty said, “Well you’re pretty good ole son,
But stay on that sideline there and let us show you how it’s done.”

Fire that pass Murray, run Marshall run!
Gurley takes it to the House, Georgia’s rising, son.
“Chickens” rushing, but onside kick’s a go.
Sonny does your dog bite? Just Gamecocks, you know.

That Ole Ball Coach bowed his head because he knew that he’d been beat,
And he threw that visor down at the ground between his feet.
Richty said, “Spurrier just come on back if you ever wanna try again, cause I told you once, you son of a gun, this team’s the best they’ve ever been!”

And the Dawgs won with,
Fire that pass Murray, run Marshall run!
Gurley takes it to the House, Georgia’s rising, son.
“Chickens” rushing, but onside kick’s a go.
Sonny does your dog bite? Just Gamecocks, you know.
