Artist: The Decemberists
 Album: Picaresque
  Song: The Sporting Life

G
I fell on the playing feild
Em
The work of an errant heel
C
The din of the crowd and the loud commotion
Am             D
When deafening silence and stopped motion
G
The season was almost done
Em
We'd managed it twelve to one
C
So far I had known no humiliation
Am             D
In front of my friends and close relation

Cmaj7                        G
There's my father looking on
Cmaj7                            G
And there's my girlfriend arm in arm
         Em
With the captain of the other team
    C
And all of this is clear to me
     D                         C
They condescend to fix on me a frown
Am       D
How they love
    G
The sporting life

G
And father had had such hopes
Em
For a son who would take the ropes
C
And fufill all his old athletic aspirations
Am             D
But apparently now there's some complications
G
But while I am lying here
Em
Trying to fight the tears
C
I'll prove to the crowd that I come out stronger
Am                     D
Though I think I might lie here a little longer

Cmaj7                                      G
'Cause there's my coach, he's looking down
Cmaj7                                  G
The disappointment in his knitted brow
  Em
I should have known he thinks again,
   C
"I never should have put him in"
   D                           C
He turns to load the lemonade away
    Am          D
And breathes in deep
    G
The sporting life
    Em
The sporting life
    C
The sporting life
       G
How he loves

(Interlude:)
G Em C G

Cmaj7                        G
There's my father looking on
Cmaj7                            G
And there's my girlfriend arm in arm
         Em
With the captain of the other team
    C
And all of this is clear to me
     D                         C
They condescend to fix on me a frown
Am       D
How they love
    G
The sporting life
    Em
The sporting life
    C
The sporting life
         G
How they love

(Outro:)
G Em C G

Some of the chords are a lot weirder than this. They're actually (something like) Gmaj7 instead of G, C9(?) which I play 032030 instead of C, and I have no idea for the D, something close to a maj7 or maj9. The rest are fine. I figured this out from a video of Colin playing it solo on Youtube.
