The Seahawks went down to Georgia

Listener Robert Pease brought out the musical side of Dori Friday with his original Seahawks version of The Devil Went Down To Georgia to encourage our team to get the win in Atlanta this weekend against the Falcons.

The full lyrics:


The Seahawks went down to Georgia
They were lookin' for a game to win
Falcons in a bind 'cause They were way behind
Trying to move the ol' pigskin

Ryan came across this Wilson man
Passin' the ball around and playin' it hot
And Ryan jumped up even though in a winnin' slump
And said, "Boy, let me tell you what"

I guess you didnt know it
But I'm a quarterback too
And if you care to take a dare
I'll make a bet with you"

"Now you play football pretty good, boy
But give Ryan his due
I'll betcha my team is gonna cream ya
'Cause I think I'm better than you"

The boy said, "My name's Russell
And it might be a sin
But I'll take your' bet, you're gonna regret
Cause we're the best there's ever been"

Russell resin up your hands and play quarterback hard
Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia and the Ryan deals the cards
And if you win you get this shiny trophy made of gold
But if you lose then Falcons gets to crow

The Ryan opened up to pass
And he said, "I'll start this show"
And the ball flew from his fingertips
As he lined up his throw

And then Sherman intercepted the ball
And fans made an evil hiss
And the nay-sayers joined in
And it sounded something like this

When the Ryan finished
Russell said, "well you're pretty good old son
But sit down in that chair right there
Let me show you how its done

Russell's in the dome, run boys, run
The Hawks in the house of the rising sun
Sacking and tackling the Falcons
Can you catch Lynch? No child, no

The Ryan bowed his head
Because he knew that he'd been beat
And he laid that golden trophy
On the ground at Russell's feet

Russell said, "Ryan, just come on back
If you ever wanna try again
I done told you once you son of a gun
I'm the best there's ever been"

Russell's in the dome, run boys, run
The Hawks in the house of the rising sun
Sacking and tackling the Falcons
Can you catch Lynch? No child, no.
