Ball Video Lyrics

James Otto


If I hadnt dropped the ball, I wouldve took it all the way
Homecoming 89 with ten seconds left to play
We were drivin toward the goal line, they were screamin in the stands
I had the chance to be a hero, but it slipped right through my hands
There wouldve been a big pep rally, the wouldve hung my jersey on the wall
If I hadnt dropped the ball

Me and Cindy Miller were supposed to meet after the game
I waited by the bleachers, but she never came
I found a note on my windshield underneath the wiper blade
With goodbye bleedin through it in the cold October rain
We probably wouldve gotten married
And those recruiters in from Bama wouldve called
If I hadnt dropped the ball

(Chorus:)
My life wouldve been so different if in that instant
Things had gone the way i planned
But the fact is that they didnt, and the hand i wound up getting
Is something that ill never understand

I ran away that summer, took a job out on the coast
And thats where I met your mama, and the rest I guess you know
If I had the chance to go back and score that last touchdown
Well, son, I wouldnt do it, cause you wouldnt be here now
And I wouldnt be your hero, I wouldnt be around to catch you when you fall
If I hadnt dropped the ball

(Chorus:)
My life wouldve been so different if in that instant
Things had gone the way i planned
But the fact is that they didnt and the hand i wound up getting
Is the one that god intended me to have

No, I wouldnt be the man I am at all
If I hadnt dropped the ball
