Big John Kuhn

Big John Kuhn

Yesterday on Twitter I decided that the world needs a John Kuhn song.  Many people chimed in with suggestions, but all day I couldn't get the words "Big John Kuhn" out of my head.  So this is my tribute to a fan favorite.

Big John

Every morning at the Hutson, you can see him arrive.
He stands 6 feet tall, weighs 250.
Kind of broad at the shoulders, can carry the weight.
And everybody knew you didn't give no lip to Big John.

Nobody seemed to know where John called home
Except for Rob Davis, the world knew none.
He didn't say much, kind of quiet and shy
And if you spoke at all, you'd just said hi to Big John.
Somebody said he came from Pittsburgh,
Where he got into a fight with Cleveland.
And a crash and a blow from a huge right hand,
sent the Browns to the promise land.

Then came the day on a fourth and one,
when a team and a dream had no chance to none.
Fans were praying, and hearts beat fast
and everybody thought they had breathed their last
cept' John.
Through the dust and the smoke of this man made hell,
walked a giant of a man that the fans knew well.
Grabbed the hand off and ran out with a roar,
and like a giant steel train he ran through that line, Big John

And with all of his strength, he gave a mighty shove.
Then a ref yelled out, 'FIRST DOWN!'.
And 11 men scrambled from a 'would be' grave
and there's only one man who saved the day, Big John.
With claps and shouts the fans chimed in
with a chant loud and clear.
And every time the Packers stood in front of a tough line,
everybody knew it was time, for Big John.

Big John

Now every time they near the goal,
the fans cheer out with a joyous sound.
With one word they make their love know,
KUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHN, Big John'

Excellent. Now we need someone to record it? Alternative ending: At the bottom of the pile lies a big big man .... Big John.

As a grad of SU I know where John called home! Great song. Need a few tweeks on the rhyming like "255" instead of 250 would sound better and I don't think John would mind the extra 5 pounds for the sake of the song. Also, how about, Nobody seemed to know where John called home, Except for Ron Davis around Pennsylvania they roamed. And somebody said he came from Pittsburgh, P.A. -----etc. Tweek the rhymes!!!! Thanks Great idea.
