The Ode to Lyndon Byers

If you were drivin down the turnpike Š in winter two thousand three
On the back every dirty truck - were the words Free LB
So for those who donÕt remember - what that message was about
let me tell you all about it - so thereÕll wonÕt be any doubt

Lyndon was a leap year baby - born in 1964
Nipawin Saskatchewan - was where he learned to score
He was a skater and a scrapper - and he often fought like hell
he was off to the black and gold - the Bruins in the NHL

It was Lyndon the enforcer - wearin' number 34
That boy made a lot dentists rich - down on that Garden floor
He won himself a lotta fans - scored a goal in the Stanley Cup
Then skated to the airwaves - when he hung his jersey up

He hooked up with the Hillman - doin' sports on AAF
That station up in Boston - that plays the music that makes you deaf
When they called in LB -corrections- heÕd tell 'em all to go to hell
But it was those Miss Mantown erections - that put him in a spell

gave his time to charities - couldn't find a better pal
played golf and hockey for a cause - and a punk in Shallow Hal
He rode rode his Harley long and hard - but let the truth be told
that underneath that gritty frame - beats a hunka-hunka heart of gold

FREE LB (modulation)

Folks say he had some kind of trouble - with some dude from the State Police
something about he shouldn'ta been drivin' or something - it said in his release
I guess the judge didn't like that shit - he was out to make him pay
So they hauled his ass off to the county jail - where he stayed for sixty days.

Well the fans they sure did miss him - Mantown was not the same
Until they got their buddy back - they'd keep alive his name
So each and every morning - as they began their day
They'd shout it, write it, scratch it, fax it, - this is what they'd say

Chorus
FREE LB on a Mack truck
FREE LB on a Ford
FREE LB on a school bus
FREE LB won't you Lord
I know it's not for nothin'
but I hope you'll hear my plea

FREE LB

FREE LB

I know it's not for nothin'
but I hope you'll hear my plea

FREE LB...
