Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Sporting Life  Decemberists

[Gmaj7]I fell on the playing field
[Em]the work of an errant heel
[Cadd9]the din of the crowd and the loud commotion
[Am]went deafening silence [Dsus2]and stopped emotion
[Gmaj7]the season was almost done
[Em]we managed it 12 to 1
[Cadd9]so far I had known no humiliation
[Am]in front of my friends a[Dsus2]nd close relations


[Cmaj7]There's my father looking [Gmaj7]on
[Cmaj7]and there's my girlfriend arm in [Gmaj7]arm
[Em]with the captain of the other team
[Cadd9]and all of this is clear to me
[Dsus2]they condescend and fix on me a [Cadd9]frown
[Am]how they [Dsus2]love
[Gmaj7]the sporting life
[Gmaj7]And father had had such hopes
[Em]for a son who would take the ropes
[Cadd9]and fulfill all his old athletic aspirations
[Am]but apparently [Dsus2]now there's some complications
[Gmaj7]but while I am lying here
[Em]trying to fight the tears
[Cadd9]I'll prove to the crowd that I come out stronger
[Am]though I think I might [Dsus2]lie here a little longer
[Cmaj7]There's my coach he's looking [Gmaj7]down
[Cmaj7]the disappointment in his knitted [Gmaj7]brow
[Em]I should've known he thinks again
[Cadd9]I never should have put him in
[Dsus2]he turns and loads the [Cadd9]lemonade away
[Am]and breathes in [Dsus2]deep
[Gmaj7]the sporting life
[Em]the sporting life
[Cadd9]the sporting life
[Gmaj7]how he loves...

[Dsus2]they condescend and fix on me a [Cadd9]frown
[Am]how they [Dsus2]love
[Gmaj7]the sporting life

[Gmaj7]how they love...
