The Lyrics

If it feels like I've been lost in strike outs, If you think I'm getting older and missing my younger days, then you should have known me much better, 'cause the past was something that never, got in my way,

Still I would not be here now if I never had the power, and I'm not ashamed to say the White Sox were my friends, 'cause I never felt the desire 'till I started setting balls on fire, then I was saved, that's why I'm keeping the faith, yeah yeah yeah yeah keeping the faith,

we wore Nike cleats only Nemo's had them with the longer laces, blue pinstriped socks with the same color shirt, and a tight pair of dirt pants, I put on my White Sox jacket, you know the ones with the latex collar, and ditty bop shades, I took a fresh wooden bat and a some thing called tobacco, my old man's courage and his Old Spice after shave, wore a shirt with a new decor, like the rest of the Babe Ruth's wore, a permanent wave, we're keeping the faith, yeah yeah yeah yeah keeping the faith,

You can get just so much from a good pitch, you can linger too long in your dreams, say good bye to the old but good pitchers, 'cause the good old days were'nt always good, this pitcher ain't as good as he seems,

Learned stick ball as a formal education, lost a lot of games but it told me how to loose ok, I heard about strikes but not enough, learned you can strike out but still look tough any way, oh yes I did, Found out the games weren't just getting later, ate an awful lot of late night drive in food, drank a lot of take home pay, I thought I was the duke of earl, when I grand slammed off Carlton's ball in '78, I was keeping the faith, yeah yeah yeah yeah keeping the faith,

ya know the good old days were'nt always good, this pitcher ain't as good as he seems,

Now I told you my reasons to not retire, now I'm going outside to jack a few more balls in the shade, I'm gunna listen to the Yanks survive, ain't it wonderful to be alive when Bobby Mercer's voice plays, When the Yankees invade, yeah, when your keeping the faith, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, keeping the faith, I'm keeping the faith
