HIT SOMEBODY!
(THE HOCKEY SONG)
(Warren Zevon & Mitch Albom)
From My Ride’s Here

           D                     G                       
Intro:    / / / /    / / / /    / / / /    / / / /  
           D                     G          D     A
          / / / /    / / / /    / / / /    / /   / /

        D                        Bm
He was born in Big Beaver by the borderline
     G              D             A       
He started playing hockey by the time he was nine
     D                                    G
His dad took the hose and froze the back yard
        D                        A          D
And Little Buddy dreamed he was Rocket Richard
    G                          Bm
He grew up big and he grew up tough
    D                           A          Bm
He saw himself scoring for the Wings or Canucks
        G           A            D
But he wasn't that good with a puck.


D                        Bm
Buddy's real talent was beating people up
     G           D               A       
His heart wasn't in it but the crowd ate it up
         D                                  G
Through pee-wee's and juniors, midgets and mites
    D                             A              D
He must have racked up more than three hundred fights
    G                                        Bm
A scout from the flames came down from Saskatoon
               D                   A         Bm
Said, "There's always room on our team for a goon
            G                      A
Son, we've always got room for a goon."





            D             Bm            D               Bm
There were Swedes to the left of him, Russians to the right
    D           Bm          G            A
A Czech at the blue line looking for a fight
  G          D          Bm            Em
Brains over brawn-that might work for you
      G         D       A         Bm
But what's a Canadian farm boy to do? (Hit Somebody!)
      G          D             A     D
What else can a farm boy from Canada do? (Hit Somebody!)
      G         D      A          Bm
But what's a Canadian farm boy to do? (Hit Somebody!)
      G          D             A     D                    G          D     A 
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?      / / / /    / / / /    / /   / /


D                    Bm
“Hit somebody!” was what the crowd roared
      G         D         A       
When Buddy the goon came over the boards
D                                   G
"Coach," he'd say, "I wanna score goals"
     D                     A           D
The coach said, "Buddy, remember your role
     G                                       Bm
The fast guys get paid, they shoot and they score
    D                       A                 Bm
Protect them, Buddy, that's what you're here for.”


   D
Protection is what you're here for
   G
Protection, it's the stars that score
   D
Protection, kick somebody's ass
   G
Protection, don't put the biscuit in the basket…





     D                     Bm
Just hit some, Buddy! it rang in his ears
G             D       A       
Blood on the ice ran down through the years
      D                                  G
The king of the goons with a box for a throne
   D                     A      D
A thousand stitches and broken bones
G                                  Bm
He never lost a fight on his icy patrol
     D                       A           Bm
But deep inside, Buddy only dreamed of a goal
    G                    A
He just wanted one damn goal.


            D            Bm           D           Bm
There were Swedes at the blue line, Finns at the red
  D               Bm            G                 A
A Russian with a stick heading straight for his head
G             D         Bm            Em
Brains over brawn that might work for you
G           D      A          Bm
What's a Canadian farm boy to do? (Hit Somebody!)
      G          D              A     D
What else can a farm boy from Canada do? (Hit Somebody!)
 G          D      A          Bm
What's a Canadian farm boy to do? (Hit Somebody!)
      G          D               A   Bm
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?


       G     D               A
In his final season, on his final night
G            D              A
Buddy and a Finn goon were pegged for a fight
G               Em       F#m          Bm
Thirty seconds left, the puck took a roll
     G              D     A       Bm
And suddenly Buddy had a shot on goal.





         D                                    Bm
The goalie committed, Buddy picked his spot
G                        D                 A       
Twenty years of waiting went into that shot
        D                                                   G
The fans jumped up, the Finn jumped too
         D                                   A         D
And coldcocked Buddy on his follow through
        G                                               Bm
The big man crumbled but he felt all right
                  D                                      A               Bm
'Cause the last thing he saw was the flashing red light
      G                           A
He saw that heavenly light.


            D            Bm            D               Bm
There were Swedes to the left of him, Russians to the right
    D           Bm          G           A
A Czech at the blue line looking for a fight
      G             D         Bm             Em
Take care of your teeth that might work for you
     G          D      A          Bm
But what's a Canadian farm boy to do? (Hit Somebody!)
      G          D              A     D
What else can a farm boy from Canada do? (Hit Somebody!)
G           D      A          Bm
What's a Canadian farm boy to do? (Hit Somebody!)
      G          D              A    Bm
What else can a farm boy from Canada do? (Hit Somebody!)
G           D      A           Bm
What's a Canadian farm boy to do? (Hit Somebody!)
      G          D              A     D
What else can a farm boy from Canada do?
