Lyrics
Mister, you're a baseball man
As anyone can plainly see
Greatest game in this great land
Take a little tip from me

I work here nights parking cars
Underneath the moon and the stars
Same ones that we all knew
Back in 1952

And if you wanna know
Where a local boy like me is coming from
3rd base, Dodger Stadium

2nd base, right over there
I see Grandma in her rocking chair
Watching linens flapping in the breeze
And all the fellows choosing up their teams

Hand over hand on that Louisville
Crowning the top king of the hill
Mound to home, sixty feet
Baseball been very good to me

And if you wanna know
Where a local boy like me is coming from
3rd base, Dodger Stadium
3rd base, Dodger Stadium

Back around the 76 ball
Johnny Greeneyes had his shoeshine stall
In the middle of the 1st base line
Got my first kiss, Florencia was kind

Now, if the dozer hadn't taken my yard
You'd see the tree with our initials carved
So many moments in my memory
Well sure was fun, 'cause the game was free
It was free

Hey Mister, you seem anxious to go
You'll find that seat in the 7th row
Behind home plate, we used to meet
When we were young, we had dreams

Just a place you don't know
Up a road you can't go
Just a thought, laid to rest
In my mind, just a time

You care to know where I'm gonna go
When I hit my last home run
3rd base, Dodger Stadium
3rd base, Dodger Stadium
3rd base, Dodger Stadium

Hey Mister, you are a baseball man
Yes, I'm a baseball man myself
Yes, I'm a baseball man too
Baseball been very good to me
Yes, baseball been very good to me
