With John Daly in contention at the PGA at Southern Hills, it seemed like the right time to dust off these ridiculous verses I wrote a while back.
JD, I’m still waiting for you to put some music to them.
John Daly, Golf Ball Driving Man
(Based on the folk song, “John Henry, Steel Driving Man”)
John Daly was a golfer
He gripped and ripped and let fly,
“Tee 'em up and swing from the heels,
I'll out drive you or I'll die.”
John Daly's caddy came to him
With a driver in his hand,
He laid his hand on John's shoulder and said:
“This belongs to a golf ball driving man.”
John Daly's caddy said to him:
“I believe a storm's coming in!”
John Daly said to his caddy: “Oh, Lord!
That's my golf ball you hear in the wind.”
John Daly said to his caddy:
“I play for the common man,
When this old life beats me down,
I'll die with a driver in my hand.”
