Oak Ridge, TN
WHO ARE WE?
I am on the highest of the tee boxes, surrounded by familiar faces
In the bottom below I see some of the others
Across the creek and headed up the hill are the rest
And I think "Who are We?"
I want to focus on the ball
But my mind keeps repeating "Who are We?"
We are Doctors, Businessmen, Engineers
We are Educators, Grandfathers, Fathers, and Sons
We are Laymen and Professional
We are Blue Collar, White Collar, yet really no collar at all
Tied so very tightly together
Mere Children playing a game that is hundreds of years old
We are a group with a past as rich and colorful as Frank's Park
As straight and true as a shot ripped down Freddie's Alley
And with a future as promising as new Zoysia in March
We are driven by a burning desire for Saturday's golf
And yet we will willingly give it all back and more for the Christmas
smiles of children we will likely never meet
So....Who are We?
We are known by many names
We are Papaw and Virgil, Tom Paul and Dale
Preheat and Hot, Hennie and Hugo
Doctor Mitchell and Doctor Jones and Yes, THE Doctor
We are Quick Bob, Kegs, and the World
But mostly we are and forever with be teh DEWSWEEPERS!!!!!
