Who whistled the tune that teaches our feet to go with a will?
Who hoisted the sail that carries the boat across the bay?
And who lighted the fire to give us a song at close of day?
The Chief, the Chief, a song at close of day,
Twas he lighted the fire to give us a song at close of day
His game is for those who haven't a bat or even a ball
His game is for those with little or nothing at all.
No matter the kind of weather, the place or time of day,
For his game for ever that all of us can play
He gave us a law as old as the stars that shine in the sky
He gave us a host of friends & a sign to know them by.
He gave us a way to climb & run & ride & swim
To dwell at peace in Our Father's house & we thank the Lord for him
