Lyrics

There was a man
Who roamed the west
They say he was hard
But he was best

His passion fumed
His flame burned bright
He walked the walk, he talked the talk
And he spurned the flight

The agony the ecstacy
Teddy Whitten was his name

Well I met him once
I’d heard the legend
His grip of steel
His fist of strength

I shook his hand
I did not sway
I still recall
The crushing force of old Footscray

The agony and the ecstacy
Teddy Whitten was his name

He stuck it right up them
He stuck it right up them
Teddy Whitten was his name

And in the end
As death rolled by
He raised his fist
Spat death in the eye

Now there’s a ghost
Who roams the west
His number 3
He saw it clear on his glorious vest

The agony and the ecstacy
Teddy Whitten was his name

He stuck it right up them
He stuck it right up them
Teddy Whitten was his name
