Blind Man In The Bleachers-crd  Kenny Starr

Words spoken and strum down one time where the chords are until sung
He's just the [G]blind man in the [C]bleachers to the [G]local hometown [C]fans
G (walk down) Em A7 D
And he sits beneath the speakers way back in the stands
And he [G]listens to the [C]play by play, he's just [G]waiting for [C]one name
He [A7]wants to hear his [D]son get in the [G]game
But the [G]boy's just not a [C]hero, he's [G]strictly second [C]team
G (walk down) Em A7 D
Though he runs each night for touchdowns in his fathers sweetest dreams
[G]He's gonna be a [C]star someday though [G]you might never [C]tell
But the [A7]blind man in the [D]bleachers knows he [G]will
And the [G]last game of the [C]season is a [D]Friday night at [G]home
And [G]no one knows the reason but the [C]blind man didn't [D]come
C D G (walk down) Em
And his boy looks kinda nervous,sometimes turns around and stares
[C]Just as though he [D]sees the old man sitting [G]there
Sung like I
Well, the local boys are tryin' but they slowly lose their will
Another players down and now he's carried from the field
At halftime in the locker room the kid goes off alone
And no one sees him talkin' on the phone
Sung like II
And the games already started when he gets back to the team
And half the crowd can hear his coach yell, "Where the hell you been?"
"Just getting' ready for the second half", is all he'll say
"Cause no you're gonna let me in to play"
Sung like II
And without another word he turns and runs into the game
And though the silence on the field, loudspeakers call his name
It'll make the local papers how the team came from behind
When they saw him playing out his heart to win
Sung like I
And when the game was over the coach asked him to tell
What was it he was thinkin' of that made him play so well
"Well, you knew my Dad was blind", he said, "Tonight he passed away"
"It's the first time that my father's seen me play"
