"Doc Gooden" as written by and John Darnielle....
Wheels down in Seattle
Three years ago in this town
They sent their best and brightest to me
I sent them all back down

Deluxe coach to the ballpark
There's champagne on the snack trays
Summon up the spirit of a brighter time
Looked bad last week against the Blue Jays

When my name was everywhere
None of you were there
When my name was everywhere

Potholes in the parking lot
You feel the jolts a little harder every year
The bat boy hands out yellow slickers
It never stops raining out here

When my name was everywhere
None of you were there
When my name was everywhere

When the speedball would squeal
With the highlight reel
When the headline hype
Was on the front page in extra large type
It was me, for all the world to see

Don't call it a comeback
I've been here for years
Maximum respect to all the warriors
Who choose to fall down on their spears

When my name was everywhere
None of you were there
When my name was everywhere
