about

I knew this guy once hey.

lyrics

So I’m 3 drinks in at the Buckhorn Tavern
Got to noticing a picture hung behind the bar
“Hey, Ole, who’s in this photo?
The young man standing next to Dillinger’s car?”

And my buddy Ole the bartender says, “His name was Walleye Fingers
Had a shop in Crivitz where he sold live bait
Told stories that would blow your mind
He knew everything to know about the Dairy State”
He was...
Walleye... Walleye Fingers
He just missed making all the history books
Walleye... Walleye Fingers
Bonafide legend of the great Northwoods

He carved a Log for his friend Les Paul
And he did a little sketching for Frank Lloyd Wright
Brokered a trade for a young Brett Favre
And he taught Hank Aaron ‘bout gemutlichkeit
He was...
Walleye... Walleye Fingers
He just missed making all the history books
Walleye... Walleye Fingers
Bonafide legend of the great Northwoods

Now, you might find it difficult believing
I asked him one time if it all was true
He said, “I swear on the mustachioed reliever
My brother Rollie wouldn’t let me lie to you”

He was a lifelong confidant of Liberace
Showed Suzy Favor how to lengthen her stride
The inspiration for Arthur Fonzarelli
And he gave Bob Uecker “Just a bit outside!”
He was...
Walleye... Walleye Fingers
He just missed making all the history books
Walleye... Walleye Fingers
Bonafide legend of the great Northwoods

Walleye... Walleye Fingers
You’re not gonna find him in the history books
Walleye... Walleye Fingers
Bonafide legend of the great Northwoods
He was a bonafide legend of the great Northwoods
