Eddie Vedder's Cubs Song

I am a big Pearl Jam fan, so I was pretty excited to run hear that Eddie Vedder debuted a song about the Cubs at the Vic on Thursday.  After listening to it I think we may be looking at a lasting anthem, or a theme song type gig.  It is really good; Vedder is a terrific songwriter, and here his focus in on Cubs fans, what the team means to them and what they mean to each other.  

Here is the link to a YouTube video of the performance. http://youtube.com/watch?v=wdwu3A6z_jA

Vedder's songs are difficult enough to understand; a streaming video captured on a cell phone camera leaves a lot to be desired.  I posted below the lyrics I was able to work out below.  If you can decipher any more please add them in the comments.  But take a look at the lyrics - I think they are kind of cool.

Someday we WILL go all the way!

Vedder's (as far as I know untitled) Cubs Song

... it's just a game
But I've seen other teams and it's never the same
When you go to Chicago...
The first time you walk into Wrigley Field
Heroes in pinstripes, heroes in blue
Give us the chance to feel like you're old school
And whether we win and if we should lose
We know someday we'll go all the way
Hey, someday we'll go all the way

We are one with the Cubs, with the Cubs we're in love
We hold our heads tall as the underdogs
We are not fair-weather, but foul-weather fans
We are brother in arms in the streets and the stands
There's magic in the ivy and the old scoreboard
The same one I stared at as a kid keeping score
In a world full of green we could never want more
And someday we'll go all the way
Hey, someday we'll go all the way

Well here's to the men and the legends we've known
Deep in our... and deep in our souls
United we stand and united we'll fall
...???...
Ernie Banks said, oh "Let's play two!"
...???...
...Wrigley...
The hope of our joy and our fears

Deep in traditions and wishes...
The Place where our grandfathers followed Babe Ruth
A spiritual feeling if I ever knew
But when the day comes...
...???...
I'll look to the sky -- and know I was right!
`Cause someday we'll go all the way.
Yeah, someday we'll go all the way.
