Scary Song Lyrics, Alabama

For the Record: 41 Number One Hits album at
Alabama's, "Mountain Music"
The Lyrics:
Playing baseball with chert rocks,
Using sawmill slabs for bats
Chert, a rock made of microcrystalline silica (tiny quartz crystals), is quite hard, because quartz is about the hardest of really common minerals. So such a baseball game would be scary. Think about the catcher and fielders who would have to try to catch those chert rocks, pitched hard or hit hard (and sometimes high) by those sawmill slabs! And any batter hit by a chert rock might be hard put to walk to first base.
