  • When I feel that chill, smell that fresh cut grass
    I'm back in my helmet, cleats, and shoulder pads
    Standing in the huddle, listening to the call
    Fans going crazy for the boys of fall

    They didn't let just anybody in that club
    Took every ounce of heart and sweat and blood
    To get to wear those game-day jerseys down the hall
    The kings of the school, man, we're the boys of fall

    Well it's turn to face the stars and stripes
    It's fighting back them butterflies
    It's call it in the air, alright
    Yes sir, we want the ball
    And it's knocking heads and talking trash
    It's slinging mud and dirt and grass
    It's I got your number, I got your back
    When your back's against the wall
    You mess with one man, you got us all
    The boys of fall

    In little towns like mine, that's all they've got
    Newspaper clippings fill the coffee shops
    The old men will always think they know it all
    Young girls will dream about the boys of fall

    Well it's turn and face the stars and stripes
    It's fighting back them butterflies
    It's call it in the air, alright
    Yes sir, we want the ball
    And it's knocking heads and talking trash
    It's slinging mud and dirt and grass
    It's I got your number, I got your back
    When your back's against the wall
    You mess with one man, you got us all
    The boys of fall

    Well it's turn and face the stars and stripes
    It's fighting back them butterflies
    It's call it in the air, alright
    Yes sir, we want the ball
    And it's knocking heads and talking trash
    It's slinging mud and dirt and grass
    It's I got your number, I got your back
    When your back's against the wall
    You mess with one man, you got us all
    The boys of fall

    We're the boys of fall
    We're the boys of fall Writer/s: CASEY BEATHARD, DAVE TURNBULL
