A Moment I'll Never Forget

from Moving Pictures by Jeffrey Scott Stewart



Written with my buddies 'Moke' and Seth at my apartment in Nashville back in 2002. Seth was visiting from California and I think that Moke had already moved to Nashville from California. (None of us live in Nashville now). We're all baseball fans, so this was probably a natural for us. It's pretty sentimental, but I still think it's a good story and a pretty song.

Moke's title and very much a co-write lyrically. Mostly my music. I recorded this at the same apartment.

The day I took my little boy to the ballpark for the very first time
He wore his cap and glove, my little man, standin’ in the ticket line
I took his hand and led him up the ramp
We made our way out on the upper deck
His eyes lit up when he saw that green grass
That’s a moment I’ll never forget

The crowd had started thinning out, the game was over by the bottom of the eighth
So we headed down to the good seats, right behind third base
Next batter swung, the foul ball came toward us
I caught it one bounce off the steps
I was proud to hand it to my son
That’s a moment I’ll never forget

Later on, out in the parking lot, he clutched his treasure in his hands
Looked up at me – all one big grin – and said, thank you, dad

Then he saw a younger boy, in a wheelchair, and he thought for a while
But before he got into the car, he asked me to wait, and he smiled
It was quite a sacrifice he made
He put the ball in that boy’s mitt
Should’ve seen that little guy’s face
That’s a moment I’ll never forget

Should’ve seen the pride on my face
That’s a moment I’ll never forget
