The Batter's Box (My Favorite Bar)
Lyrics
The Batter's Box
© 2006 Jim Gach

IT'S MY FAVORITE PLACE ON THE WHOLE DAMN EARTH
THE PEOPLE THERE DON'T CARE WHAT YOUR WORTH.
IT'S THE LOCAL BAR WHERE I ALWAYS GO
TO CELEBRATE OR WHEN I'M FEELIN' LOW.

OUT ON THE HIGHWAY NUMBERED U.S. 1
THAT GOES ALL THE WAY FROM MAINE TO KEY WEST
SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE NEAR BALTIMORE
IS THE LOCAL BAR THAT I LOVE THE BEST.

CHORUS:
IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE BATTER'S BOX
THE O'S ON TV AND THE PLACE REALLY ROCKS.
MIKE DOES KARAOKE WHILE MARY TENDS BAR
AND IT'S THE ONLY PLACE THAT I KNOW WHERE YOU CAN BE...
WHO YOU ARE.

RAMP:
I'VE BEEN IN THE HONKEY TONKS IN NASHVILLE
AND THE BLUES BARS IN MEMPHIS
I'VE BEEN IN EVERY JOINT ON BOURBON STREET
BUT I ALWAYS COME HOME TO MY LOCAL BAR
CAUSE THE PEOPLE THERE REALLY KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

REPEAT CHORUS

GARY'S WINS TRIVIA CAUSE HE KNOWS LITTLE THINGS
SHELLEY AND ADRIAN ARE WAITING TO SING.
LEIGH'S TENDING BAR , SHE'S QUITE A FOX
ANOTHER SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE BATTER'S BOX.

REPEAT RAMP
REPEAT CHORUS OUT
