Lyrics

“Daddy, why is there an empty parking lot behind the school?” “Well Son, let me tell you a story…”

Rambling background story of the National Football Hall of Fame opening up the College Football Hall of Fame in 1978, north of Cincinnati, Ohio…

“And there used to be a College Football Hall of Fame
Where the parking lot was paved and smooth.
And the people loved the exhibits
With a joy, unrestrained !
And the Museum was such a Wonder
From the hot-dogs and the …. wait I don’t think they served alcohol at the museum ?
Yes, there used to be a College Football Hall of Fame and Museum Right Here….” “Sing it Frank…”

“And there used to be …… “Rock Candy?”” I don’t know about that…. Yes, the 4th of July is still on the calendar, we still celebrate that…. Yes, and there are fireworks
All across the Summer Sky – well “Fall” would fit better in my paradigm.”

“And the people stared in wonder
How they’d raise the college cheer
And there used to be a College Football Hall of Fame and Museum… right here”

“Now my children try to find it,
and they can’t believe their eyes –
the museum moved to South Bend and then they moved again somewhere south... I don’t know where – could someone ask Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports ?

And now the ground is contaminated
And the field is full of Lead
And the FALL went so quickly this year
