E5        B5         A5
Me, I'm the Lonesome Kicker
E5                 B5              A5
Extra points, field goals at your service
E5                  B5         A5
One might think it comes with glory
E5                 B5                             A5
You might think different after you listen to my story
E5              B5                 A5
My helmet is equipped with a tiny face mask
E5                           B5         A5
What it possibly could protect, I do not know
E5                                  B5                   A5
The other guys on the team like to make fun of my little shoulder pads
E5                           B5                            A5
And also like to hide the special shoe I need to kick in the snow

E5                     B5                             A5
People think it's so easy to kick a field goal from the 30 yard line
     E5                                 B5
They forget to add seven yards for the snap, and 10 more 'cause the
Goal posts are pushed way back

E5              B5
In 1974, the uprights were right on the goal line
But some of the players were running into them, and getting hurt
E5                   B5               A5
So screw the kicker... Who cares about the kicker?

A5                           B5
But I kick that ball, and I pray it goes straight
       E5                             C#5
If it does the coach says "Good job, number 8"
 A5                      B5                  E5             C#5
He doesn't even know my name is Andre Grisumcovitchlavinski, Jr.
    A5                    B5 (twice)
But that's the life I live... The Lonesome Kicker

[ Tab from: ]
E5            B5          A5
Kickoffs can be so very scary
E5                     B5                A5
Especially, if the returner breaks on through
E5                              B5                       A5
And I'm the only guy on the playing field left to tackle him
E5                               B5               A5
I don't want to get hurt, so I pretend to tie my shoe

E5                  B5                                A5
Once again, I'm ignored by my teammates and all my coaches
E5                      B5              A5
"Go back where you came from!" Scream 70,000 fans
E5                                B5
Well, I know I could win their love back by catching a winning
E5                           B5                     A5
But, unfortunately, I was born with these very small hands

A5                                      B5
And I hope that the cameras don't come in too close
              E5                    C#5
Cause they might see the tears in my eyes
     A5                             B5
As I sit on this bench made of cold-hearted wood
            E5                   C#5
And the splinters go deep in my thighs
         A5                           B5 (twice)
And the towel boy snickers as he walks by...The Lonesome Kicker

A5   B5     Another blocked kick

A5   B5     and everybody blames me

A5   B5     But it was the Left Guard

A5   B5     Who didn't pick up his man

A5   B5     Oh, why can't they see...?

E5                                         B5              A5
In my home country, I could have been a minor league soccer player
E5                                B5                 A5
But I came to America seeking fortune and seeking fame
E5                              B5             A5
I didn't realize that if I shanked one, and blew the point spread
E5                                          B5             A5
Some drunk guys would push me into their hibachi after the game.

A5                               B5
So I go home at night, cause I never get invited
         E5                  C#5
To go drinking with the other guys
  A5                          B5
And I sit in my chair, and I soak my foot
            E5                C#5
As I eat a plate of cold French fries
       A5                       B5
And my wife's out with her quote-unquote friend
        E5                     C#5
And my son can't look me in the eyes
 A5                    B5 (twice)
But that's the life I live...The Lonesome Kicker

Kicking for you
They took my snow shoe
They're going for two...   (strum)  A5     B5      E5
