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.
