Centerfield
John Fogerty Lyrics


Well, I beat the drum and hold the phone
The sun came out today
We're born again, there's new grass on the field
A-roundin' third and headed for home
It's a brown-eyed handsome man
Anyone can understand the way I feel

Oh, put me in, coach, I'm ready to play today
Put me in, coach, I'm ready to play today
Look at me, I can be centerfield

Well, I spent some time in the Mudville Nine
Watching it from the bench
You know I took some lumps, when the mighty Case struck out
So say hey, Willie, tell the Cobb
And Joe DiMaggio
Don't say it ain't so, you know the time is now

Oh, put me in, coach, I'm ready to play today
Put me in, coach, I'm ready to play today
Look at me, I can be centerfield

Yeah, got it, I got it

Got a beat-up glove, a home-made bat
And a brand new pair of shoes
You know I think it's time to give this game a ride
Just to hit the ball and touch 'em all
A moment in the sun
It's a-gone and you can tell that one good-bye

Oh, put me in, coach, I'm ready to play today
Put me in, coach, I'm ready to play today
Look at me (yeah), I can be centerfield

Oh, put me in, coach, I'm ready to play today
Put me in, coach, I'm ready to play today
Look at me, gotta be, centerfield
Yeah

Whenever baseball starts again they simply MUST play this at the stadium before the game. Thank you John Fogerty ⚾️. Now that I think about it they should have John Fogerty at that 1st game and have him play LIVE.

Jim M

Amen!

Cliff Liese

I'm with you, bro!

Rodney Foster

Mark W Liberals would find something wrong with this song.

Dawn Welch

I used to work for a few seasons at Safeco Field (now T-Mobile Park) 2015-2017...and THIS song would play every time the doors opened to the public! So much fun to sing with my co-workers!!
