Big Ben Went Down to Georgia

March 18, 2010 - Paul Giannamore

My version of a parody of Charlie Daniels' hit "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," admittedly brought about by Big Ben's devil shirt in photographs from his big night in Milledgeville, Ga. And yes, every FM radio station across the nation has done one of these parodies. Mine factors in an outside, fictional, probably improbable shot that Tim Tebow would replace $102 Million Ben.

"Big Ben went down to Georgia,

He was looking for a girl that squeals.

His bus was great, filled with his 'mates

And booze you couldn't steal.

When he came upon this young girl 

Dancing on a pole and she was hot.

Then Ben jumped up on a barstool and said,

'Boys, let me tell you what.

I've heard of that kid Tebow and he's a football player, too

But I'll bet his soul against my two rings because I think I'm better than him."

The boy said, 'My name's Timmy, and  and it might be a sin,

'But I'll take your bet, 'cause you need to regret that you think you're the best that's ever been.'

(Chorus sings)

"Timmy resin up your hand and throw that football hard,

Cause Big Ben's loose in Georgia and the Rooneys hold the cards

And if you win you might get some shiny Super Bowl rings of gold

But if you lose, Big Ben gets your soul....."

(Fiddle break, video of Tim Tebow completing touchdown after touchdown, hitch in his throw not withstanding, compared with Big Ben getting sacked a lot and tossing interceptions. A 2009 Steeler highlights reel, in other words)

Resume song:

"Big Ben bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat

And those Rooneys kind of thought someone stable should take his seat.

Timmy said, "Benny, come on back if you ever want to try again.

I hear Dallas needs a jerk, and you might just fit in."

Timmy sang, "Fire in Pittsburgh, run boys run.

Benny's in the House of the Rising Sun,

Hines Ward's open, throw Tim, throw

Those Cleveland dogs won't bite, no child no."

(Fiddle break. Fade to black.)
