SONG HISTORY – “YANKEE STADIUM”

   Hello everyone.  Nils Lofgren here.  I wanted to give you some history on this new song, “Yankee Stadium.” 
   My fabulous wife Amy (a Jersey girl), remains a life-long Yankee fan with a great, emotional history of experience in Yankee Stadium from childhood to present.  Her concept and the song’s chorus;
“everyone is beautiful in Yankee Stadium,” was born from those memories and experiences.  She’s been asking me to write this song for a while and here it is.   
   I’m a long time fan myself, especially of the mythical and mystical nature of old Yankee Stadium, which I’ve been fortunate to experience first hand.  This song is an homage born of respect and gratitude for all the emotional and spiritual beauty Yankee Stadium has offered to so many, for so long.  We hope all you Yankee fans out there enjoy it!

“Yankee Stadium” (3:05)

Sweet Amy cheers in wide-eyed wonder 
from her Daddy’s arms as Babe Ruth thunders   
another home run out of the park   
for all to see


Our hotdog vendor shouts and smiles   
his peg leg from the real War   
strolls these hallowed miles
we marvel at his endless stream   
of funny wisecracks at the opposing team

In Yankee Stadium   
in Yankee Stadium   
in Yankee Stadium   
everyone is beautiful   
everyone is beautiful

  The weary single Mom sits up straight   
to her four young girls she radiates   
a dignity
As DiMaggio storms the plate   
a century of worship so commonplace

  I squeeze my girl’s hand sit side on side   
the Bronx twilight and her face collide
A picture so sweet I could cry   
a joy and time stand still

  In Yankee Stadium   
in Yankee Stadium   
in Yankee Stadium   
everyone is beautiful   
everyone is beautiful
In Yankee Stadium

  For every soul who entered here   
we raise a glass we shed a tear
A beauty in every face appears   
hope and love’s alive tonight

  In Yankee Stadium   
in Yankee Stadium   
in Yankee Stadium   
everyone is beautiful   
everyone is beautiful

  (In Yankee Stadium) oh my Yankee Stadium   
everyone is beautiful   
everyone is beautiful

  Oh my Yankee Stadium   
goodbye my beautiful Yankee Stadium
