The Oils Back In Town

This song is by Corb Lund.

They got the Coliseum rockin' and they're making quite a din
Singin' "here we go Oilers, here we go" again
There ain't no louder building than the house of ninety-nine
Got the echoes of the dynasty a burnin' in their minds
You better cheer 'em on, they're the roughest necks around.
'Cause it's hockey night in Edmonton, the Oil's back in town, yeah!

Skatin' quick and passin' pretty, fastest ice around the league
The goalie stacks 'em up and makes a save you can't believe
Elbows in the corners and she's getting kinda rough
But I know we've got some boys that ain't afraid to drop the gloves
You better cheer 'em on, they're the roughest necks around
'Cause it's hockey night in Edmonton, the Oil's back in town, yeah!

All they got is broken noses, missin' teeth and blackened eyes
Beards and blood and guts and stitches keepin' playoff hopes alive
And the spirit of the boys from the Eighties in their eyes

Come on and say it with me, say it "Five cups, five!"
You better cheer 'em on, 'cause they're better than the rest
They got the blue and orange colours of the Oilers on their chests, yeah!

Well, I got me a couple tickets, take my baby to the game
'Cause the road trip's over, winnin' every game away
Don't really need my radio, but bring it anyway
Catch the skipper, Roddy Phillips, call the play-by-play
You better cheer 'em on, they're the roughest necks around
'Cause it's hockey night in Edmonton, the Oil's back in town.

Yeah, you better cheer 'em on, 'cause they're better than the rest
They got the blue and orange colours of the Oilers on their chests, yeah!
