Put Pete In


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
When a kid, I played with Pete Carroll, now the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.
I was ahead of him at wingback then I broke my finger and pretty much ended by playing in tackle football,
I got into guitar, Beatles then other forms of guitar etc.

Pete's relatives loved to push Pete to glory :^)

Years later I found the trophy (our pop warner team won 3 years in a row and never lost).
It was passed as a tennis trophy and wound up at a garage sale, found it and gave it to Ron Stewart our defensive coach before he died.

Lyrics
D G D
I remember it well, we were just kids
D A
On a team that won every game
D G
Northern California champs with a big trophy to show
A D
Now your in a city that wins and always has rain
---------------------------------------
D G
You were number 40 I was 41,
D A
we sat side by side
D G
Your brothers always called out, “put pete in”
A D
Now Seattle your the pride
-----------------------------------------
D G D
Decades later I heard your coaching USC
D A
I just ran a tiny little company
D G
You became bigger than life
A D
Truly pro history football history
———————————————————————
Chorus
Bm G
It hurt that day 9’ers & SeaHawks played.
D A
The playoff game before the super bowl
D G
But I can understand why you so cheered
A D
Your their coach now you won and made it your goal
----------------------
Bm G
It was bad enough when my home team lost
D A
And you went on to the last game :(
D G D
Coachin your team to Super Bowl victory
A D
And Denver sadly went down like a flame
======================
Verse
D G D
It hurts to see you go so far
D A
Me I’m just another guy down the street
D G D
I hope in your stadium the ole niners will rise
A D
And the Seahawks go down in defeat :)
---------------------------------------------
Bm G
Hope I’ll hear the silents of your 12th man !
D A
Stop the echoes of “Put Pete in”

In a way, playing as kids is a lot more real than what comes after, not?

Lovely track.

But was I depressed after the Seahawks beat the 49ers!

I just had to get this whole thing off my chest in someway.

Put Pete In
Lovely gentle, fluid opening, Bill. Fine story telling, too. The reverb gives the post a wistful, almost melancholic vibe. Thanks, Peter.
