[Verse 1]

           C                  Fmaj7               C               Dm
When the day is done and the ball has spun in the umpires pocket away,
     C                    Fmaj7                    C                   Dm 
And all remains in the groundsman's pains for the rest of time and a day;
              C                 Em      C                          Dm              
There'll be one mad dog and his master, pushing for four with the spin
      C                 Fmaj7               C                 G
On a dusty pitch, with two pounds six, of willow wood in the sun.


[Chorus]

         C              Fmaj7                  C                      Dm
When an old cricketer leaves the crease, you never know whether he's gone;
    C                           Fmaj7                  C                    G    
If sometimes you're catching a fleeting glimpse of a twelfth man at Silly Mid-On;
        C                      Fmaj7                 C                     Dm
And it could be Geoff, and it could be John, with a new ball sting in his tail;
        C                    Fmaj7                            C             G    Fmaj7    
And it could be me, and it could be thee, and it could be the sting in the ale, sting in the ale.


[Verse 2]

          C                      Fmaj7                    C                    Dm
When the moment comes, and the gathering stands, and the clock turns back to reflect
         C                       Fmaj7                   C                    Dm
On the years of grace, as those footsteps trace for the last time out of the act;
           C             Em             C                       Dm
Well this way of life's recollection, the hallowed strip in the haze,
     C                    Fmaj7               C                               G
The fabled men, and the noonday sun, are much more than just yarns of their days.


[Chorus]

         C              Fmaj7                  C                      Dm
When an old cricketer leaves the crease, you never know whether he's gone;
    C                           Fmaj7                  C                    G    
If sometimes you're catching a fleeting glimpse of a twelfth man at Silly Mid-On;
        C                      Fmaj7                 C                     Dm
And it could be Geoff, and it could be John, with a new ball sting in his tail;
        C                    Fmaj7                            C             G    Fmaj7    
And it could be me, and it could be thee, and it could be the sting in the ale, sting in the ale.

[Repeat Chorus]

         C              Fmaj7                  C                      Dm
When an old cricketer leaves the crease, you never know whether he's gone;
    C                           Fmaj7                  C                    G    
If sometimes you're catching a fleeting glimpse of a twelfth man at Silly Mid-On;
        C                      Fmaj7                 C                     Dm
And it could be Geoff, and it could be John, with a new ball sting in his tail;
        C                    Fmaj7                            C             G    Fmaj7    
And it could be me, and it could be thee, and it could be the sting in the ale, sting in the ale.
