Capo 1
Intro (piano): E7 E7|A7|E7|

   A7    
Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
  
   E7 
Tessie is the tune they always sung

   E7 

Tessie echoed April through October nights

   D                                 E7
After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
   
  A7
Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
  
 E7
Tessie is a maiden with a love

   E7
She doesn't know the meaning of her sight

   D                         E7
She's got a comment full of love


(Interlude):
A7|A7|E7|E7|E7|E7|D|E7 


 A7
And sometimes when the game is on the line

 E7 
Tessie always carried them away

 E7
Up the road from "Third Base" to Huntington

 D                           E7 (mute right before Two three four)
The boys will always sing and sway
 
Two! Three! Four!
 
  
A        A7                        D
Tessie, "Nuf Ced" McGreevey shouted


We're not here to mess around
 
 A                  E
Boston, you know we love you madly

           A                 E7
Hear the crowd roar to your sound

  A                   A7
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you

 D
You know we couldn't live without you

 E                   E7          A     E7
Tessie, you are the only only oooooooonly
 

 
A7
The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day

 E7
They found their seats had all been sold

 E7
McGreevey led the charge into the park

 D                                     E7
Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
 
 

A7
The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright

 E7
Boston's tenth man could not be wrong

 E7
Up from "Third Base" to Huntington

 D                           E7 (mute before two three four)
They'd sing another victory song
 
Two! Three! Four!
 

  A       A7                         D
Tessie, "Nuf Ced" McGreevey shouted


We're not here to mess around

  A                  E
Boston, you know we love you madly

           A                 E7  
Hear the crowd roar to your sound

 A                    A7
Don't blame us if we ever doubt you

D
You know we couldn't live without you

E                    E7         A      E7
Tessie, you are the only only ooooooonly
 
 A7                                          (mute)  
The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright


Boston's tenth man could not be wrong

E7
Up from "Third Base" to Huntington

D                            E7 (mute right before two three four)
