Opening Day! (the song)

There are hundreds of songs about Christmas, but I can’t think of one song about the best holiday of the year: Opening Day. So this past weekend, with the excitement of the home-opener building, I sat down and wrote a song about Opening Day. On Sunday night, after my kids were all in bed, I recorded it in my basement onto my Mac laptop using GarageBand software. Five tracks: two acoustic guitars and three vocals. Click on the box to listen. Enjoy!

Opening Day
by Rob Crawford (ASCAP)

Well it’s Opening Day
Winter’s gone, let’s celebrate
Skipping school for the game
Got no choice, it’s in my D.N.A.
Baseball everyday ’til fall
Sing Spangled Stars, then let’s play ball
Yes it’s Opening Day
Life’s good again

Opening Day!
Opening Day!

Well it’s Opening Day
Winter’s gone, spring starts today
Skipping work for the game
Guess I’ll update my resume
From Japan to Canada
U.S.A. to Latin America
Yes it’s Opening Day
Life’s good again

Opening Day!
Opening Day!
This is the year we go all the way
It all starts on Opening Day

Well it’s Opening Day
Winter ended yesterday
Skipping school for the game
It’s a Red Sox Nation holiday
And the rockets’ red glare
The bombs bursting in air
Yes it’s Opening Day
Life’s good again

Baseball everyday ’til fall
No more hot stove, let’s play ball
Yes it’s Opening Day
Life’s good again

Opening Day!

Great job, Mr. VP.

Now that song’s stuck in my head! Not a bad thing though. After all, it is Opening Day…

Hi Rob,

I was one of the final 25 for RSN President. I have read that there will be a governor appointed for each state, starting with the New England ones.

I live in Vermont.

My (losing HAHA) platfrom can still be found here:

Great song. I love to sing and after a chorus I was with you all the way.
Hope you get out to angel stadium so we can all sing the Red Sox Nation song all together.

Great song!!
In Maine opening day has been such a blessing. We still have snow on the ground! When the Sox play in Boston spring is really coming!
Any chance I can get info on how to campaign Governor for Maine or will the Governors be appointed?
Also Jerry Remy announced from Japan new Redsox Nation members would recieve tickets if the signed up that day. I did!
Any info would be helpful.

Thanks and Go SOX!

Hey Rob, I have a harmony for this song! Anyway, I will be at the game on Friday, April 18, and again on Sunday. Hope to see you!
