Thread Name: Sporting hero songs?
Subject: Lyr Add: JOLTIN' JOE DIMAGGIO^^
Used in a series on HBO about baseball called "When It Was A Game", there's Willie, Mickey, and the Duke.

And of course the Alan Courtney song that was a hit for Les Brown:


"Who started baseball's famous streak
"That's got us all aglow?
"He's just a man and not a freak,
"Joltin' Joe DiMaggio.
"Joe, Joe DiMaggio
"We want you on our side.
"From Coast to Coast, that's all you hear
"Of Joe the One-Man Show.
"He's glorified the horsehide sphere,
"Joltin' Joe DiMaggio.
"Joe, Joe DiMaggio.
"We want you on our side. "He'll live in baseball's Hall of Fame,
"He got there blow-by-blow.
"Our kids will tell their kids his name,
"Joltin' Joe DiMaggio."
