The Fastest Swimmer in Comanche County

Standard

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted any lyrics. This is a new song I’ve been playing for the last month or so live.

The Fastest Swimmer in Comanche County

Have you heard of Eric Murdock?
Let me be the first to tell you
He’s the fastest swimmer in Comanche County
From Cache to Chattanooga

He’s going to be an Olympic swimmer
He’s gonna live the American dream
From Wheatie’s boxes, to razor blades to Nike

Have you heard of Eric Murdock?
He clocks in at six foot four
He’s strong as an ox, fast as a shark
Thin as a board

He’s gonna win enough gold to swim in
He’s gonna put this small town on the map
And people will come from miles around
Just to see it

He trains like clockwork every day
From six to five and he’s hired a coach from out of state
He’s got tudors, nutritionist, pastors and machines
He’s gonna be the best of us all

Did you hear about Eric Murdock?
Let me be the first to tell you
He shot out of our town draped in our flag
Then used it for a parachute

Wanted to be an Olympic swimmer
Wanted to live the American dream
But when the bubble burst on our small town
It changed everything

Have you heard about Eric Murdock?
He took first, five times in the state
But on a National level against the best in the world
He never had what it takes

But it wasn’t from lack of trying
If anything he tried too hard
But the talk in this town
Is that he let us all down
And embarrassed us all

Have you heard about Eric Murdock?
He owns six dealerships in the state
And he’s the number one seller in Oklahoma
Of Chevrolets

He was written off as a failure
By all who’d never tried
But truth be told if I’m telling it
He’s a hero of mine
