Right Field v1

Peter, Paul and Mary

 GG/F#EmCC/BAmD/F#
Verse 1
 GG/F#EmG
 Saturday summers when I was a kid,
 CAmD/F#
We'd run to the school yard and here's what we did,
 CDCD
We'd pick out the captains and we'd choose up the teams,
 GG/F#Em
It was always a measure of my self esteem.
 CAm
Cause the fastest, the strongest played shortstop and first,
 C/GD/F#
the last ones they picked were the worst.
 F
 I never needed to ask, it was sealed,
 D/F#
I just took up my place in right field.

Chorus
 GG/F#EmG/D
Playing right field, its easy you know,
 CC/BAmD
 You can be awkward, you can be slow,
 CD
That's why I'm here in right field,
 CD/F#GCG
Just watching the dandelions grow.  

Verse 2
 GG/F#EmG/D
Playing right field can be lonely and dull,
 CC/BAmD/F#
 Little leagues never have lefties that pull,
 CDCD
dream of the day, when they hit one my way,
 GG/F#EmG/D
 They never did, but still I would pray,
 CAm
That I'd make a fantastic catch on the run,
 C/GD/F#
And not lose the ball in the sun.
 F
And then I'd awake from this long reverie,
 D/F#
And pray that the ball never came out to me.
(Chorus)
 GG/F#EmG/D
Here in right field, its easy you know, 
 CC/BAmD
 You can be awkward, you can be slow,
 CD
That's why I'm here in right field,
 CD/F#GCG
Just watching the dandelions grow.  

(Break)
 GG/F#EmG/DCC/BAmD/F#GG/F#E7Am
Verse 3
 GD/F#EmG
 Off in the distance, the game's dragging on,
 CC/BAmD/F#
There's strikes on the batter, some runners are on,
 CDCD
don't know the inning, I've forgotten the score.
 GG/F#Em
The whole team is yelling and I don't know what for,
 CAm
 Suddenly everyone's looking at me,
 C/GD/F#
My mind has been wandering, what could it be?
 F
They point to the sky and I look up above,
 D/F#
And the baseball falls into my glove!

Chorus 2
 GG/F#EmG/D
Here in right field, Its important you know,
 CC/BAmD
You gotta know how to catch, you gotta know how to throw,
 CD
That's why I'm here in right field,
 CDGCG
Just watching the dandelions grow.
