The Boys of Fall (6:31)

Cover of Hemingway's Whiskey

From Hemingway's Whiskey and 4 other releases

According to the Boys of Fall Songfacts, Kenny explained on his website that from the first time he played the tune, he knew he wanted to record it. “I just stopped right there, and played it over and over again,” Chesney said. “I knew — as maybe only someone who has felt that thrill of rushing out onto the field on a cold Friday night can — that was exactly how it is. It also gives you a sense of why playing football in high school is such a powerful thing for anyone who does it. It’s life changing. For anyone who’s never experienced that, this song helps them understand why.”

When I feel that chill, smell that fresh cut grass
I'm back in my helmet, cleats, and shoulder pads
Standing in the huddle, listening to the call
Fans going crazy for the boys of fall

    I love this song. It really embodies the spirit of such a great game. "It's turn and face the stars and stripes...I got your number, I got your back, when your backs against the wall. You mess with one man, you got us all." There is nothing that can match the comraderie, patriotism and passion of football.
