This is very basic chord-wise, but super fun lyrics so have fun with it. Verse 1: G Em Saturday summers when I was a kid, C Am We'd run to the school yard and here's what we did, C D7 C D7 We'd pick out the captains and we'd choose up the teams, G Em It was always a measure of my self esteem. C Am Cause the fastest, the strongest played shortstop and first, Am D7 The last ones they picked were the worst. F I never needed to ask it was sealed Dm D7 I just took up my place in right field. Chorus: G Em Playing right field, its easy you know, C D7 C D7 You can be awkward, you can be slow, C Am That's why I'm here in right field, Am D7 G Just watching the dandelions grow. Verse 2: G Em Playing right field can be lonely and dull, C Am Little leagues never have lefties that pull, C D7 C D7 I dream of the day, when they hit one my way, G Em They never did, but still I would pray, C Am C Am That I'd make a fantastic catch on the run, C Am D7 And not lose the ball in the sun. C Am C Am And then I'd awake from this long reverie, C Am C Am And pray that the ball never came out to me. Chorus: G Em Here in right field, its easy you know, C D7 C D7 You can be awkward, you can be slow, C Am That's why I'm here in right field, Am D7 G Just watching the dandelions grow. [solo break] Verse 3: G Em Off in the distance, the game's dragging on, C Am There's strikes on the batter, some runners are on, C D7 C D7 I don't know the inning, I've forgotten the score. G Em The whole team is yelling, and I don't know what for. C Am C Am Suddenly everyone's looking at me, C Am C D7 My mind has been wandering, what could it be? C Am C Am They point to the sky and I look up above, C Am D7 And the baseball falls into my glove! G C Am Here in right field, Its important you know, C Am C D7 You gotta know how to catch, you gotta know how to throw, C Am That's why I'm here in right field, Am D7 G G C Am D7 G Just watching the dandelions grow. My first tab!
