I once again call on the help of the smart people who read these questions and help answer them. I have heard a song on the radio a couple of times, and I know a bit of the lyrics, but I cannot find the name of the song. "My boy's gonna play in the big leagues, my boy's gonna knock 'em dead" I believe those are the right words. Could anyone help me with this? Thanks.

That'd be a song by Tom Cochrane, but there is a cover done by the CEO's.

The big league

When he was a kid, he'd be up at five

Take shots till eight, make the thing drive

Out after school, back on ice

That was his life, he was gonna play in the Big League

The Big League

Not many ways out of this cold northern town

You work in the mill and get laid in the ground

If you're gonna jump it will be with the game

Real fast and tough is the only clear lane to the Big League

My boy's gonna play in the Big League

My boy's gonna turn some heads

My boy's gonna play in the Big League

My boy's gonna knock 'em dead

The Big League

All the right moves when he turned eighteen

Scholarship and school on a big U.S. team

Out with his girl near Lake McClean

Hit a truck doing seventy in the wrong lane

To the Big League

My boy's gonna play in the Big League

My boy's gonna turn some heads

My boy's gonna play in the Big League

My boy's gonna knock 'em dead

Never can tell what might come down

Never can tell how much you get

Just don't know, no you never can tell

Sometimes at night I can hear the ice crack

It sounds like thunder and it rips through my back

Sometimes in the morning I still hear the sound

Ice meets metal...

"Can't you drive me down to the Big League?"

My boy's gonna play in the Big League

My boy's gonna turn some heads

My boy's gonna play in the Big League

My boy's gonna knock 'em dead

Never can tell what might come down

Never can tell when you might check out

Just don't know, no you never can tell

So do right to others like you do to yourself

In the Big League

no...not the running guy, I meant the *new* one. But this old one has warm fuzzy feelings of songfacts history attached to it. That's really the only thing keeping me from changing mine even though I'm (obviously) totally wasted in the picture and I don't even drink anymore. Avatar history commands it to be so.
