  1. Kings Among Kings

From the recording New American Century

Lyrics

On the diamond so many summers ago
With that spring in your knees the daylight wouldn't end
But you must have known on the bus rides to your home
The girl is often the curve of two friends

Of two friends, of two friends
Of two friends, of two friends

But you were the one who kept me going so long
Fitted caps and the all-star hotels
We did our time in the dirt on the hill in the sun
And I was the one who could never warm up to a calling that I didn't know
We were kings among kings, if only for awhile

I don't remember the stats the scores or the games
Only that knuckled feeling the day that she ran
Now the choice of the boy deceased in so many words
Is the living ghost of regret to the man

Is the living ghost of regret to the man

But you were the one who kept me going so long
Fitted caps and the all-star hotels
We did our time in the dirt on the hill in the sun
And I was the one who could never warm up to a calling that I didn't know
We were kings among kings
We were kings among kings
We were kings among kings if only for awhile
