"What It Was Was Football" by Deacon Andy Griffith, as he called himself in those days, is not a poem or song but a prose monologue, a story told from the point of view of a rube who knows nothing about football, seeing his first game. It was first released on both sides of a 78-rpm record. The text has been posted by Spaw here.
