Dependable Jody Craddock

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A taste of wine that’s matured with age
That brought me on to write this page
And put his name into my written word
Because more and more his name was heard

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Not quick but nor was he slow
Was he brave? Yes, very much so
Jody Craddock became immense
He learned the art of positional sense

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Now, art, I’ve gone and mentioned
He’s retired but not state pensioned
Before he was spent and went over the hill
He reverted to a love of another skill

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Of canvas, paint and brush in hand
Fade will his song from the Jack Harris Stand
Fade not, captain dependable
His artwork is so recommendable

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Paint on, brave Wolves defender
For many a man, a commender
Admire this footballing name
Now playing the artistic game

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But before gold colours are in the shade
Let’s place on record the good impression he made
And deservedly so I can tell
The armband suited, it fit him well

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Jody Craddock, bandage and blood
Taking a hit, an elbow, a stud
Wolves supporters, who all were observant
Jody Craddock a great, great servant
