We Played Football Lyrics – Buddy Brown

If you left your holding shoulder pads
On Friday morning before class
And you felt like you just been reborn
If you rode with your buddies to school that day
In one big old truck going down the highway
Got to school, climbed out wearing uniforms
And that pep rally cranking up the drum line
The cheerleaders ain’t never looked so fine
And you think, “Hell, 10 games ain’t enough”
Volunteers made food before the big game
But we were too nervous and nobody ate
Is it all coming back, have you felt this way?

Then you probably played football
You know how good it feels
To see the coin toss on the 50 yard line
And the home team take the field
You probably played football
No you just can’t let it go
If they called your number right now
You’d be ready to throw your helmet on
Almost game time, you can’t wait to tear ’em up
It feels like thunder in the stadium
Yeah man we played football

If with every year that goes by
You ran a faster 40 time
Than what you said you ran last year
If you’d give anything to go out for one pass
The head coach telling you to hit that grass
He’s been retired ten years but still hates my ass, yeah

And you probably played football
You know how good it feels
To see the coin toss on the 50 yard line
And the home team take the field
You probably played football
No you just can’t let it go
If they called your number right now
You’d be ready to throw your helmet on
Almost game time, you can’t wait to tear ’em up
It feels like thunder in the stadium
Yeah man we played football

If you stood there as the time ran out
On an empty field one knee on the ground
And you couldn’t believe that it was over
And the last thing you ever wanted to do
Is head back inside that locker room
‘Cause this is what you love and what you’re born to do

And you probably played football
No you just can’t let it go
If they called your number right now
You’d be ready to throw your helmet on
Almost game time, you can’t wait to tear ’em up
It feels like thunder in the stadium
Hell yeah, we played football
