The Lyrics

This is a song about National Hockey League. The reference to early fall of 2004 is when the CBA expires and everyone expects all hell the break loose because the players are too greedy to accept a salary cap.
Oh Gary
It's a long way you've come
From small town Canada to Anaheim, California
From end to end rushs to the neutral zone trap
From digging in the PAs pockets to them digging in yours

These are the hands that bulit the NHL
Russian, Swede, Finn, Czech
Canadian, Slovak, German, American

I last saw a game in nineteen-ninty nine
As the Great One said a long goodbye
You took your Cup and presented to the Dallas Stars
You gotta live with your league
Don't make it so bad

And these are the hands that built the NHL
These are the hands that built the NHL
The Habs, Blackhawks, Red Wings, Bruins
Leafs, Rangers, Flyers, Oilers

Of all the places
Why is there a team in Nashville?
Of all the dreams
Is a CBA out of reach?

It's early fall '04
There's a cloud in the pro sports skyline
Innocence drags across a thin blue line
These are the hands that built the NHL
These are the hands that built the NHL
