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                     Dsus2
went deafening silence 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                      Dsus2
in front of my friends and close relations


Cmaj7                     Gmaj7
There's my father looking on
Cmaj7                            Gmaj7
and there's my girlfriend arm in arm
Em
with the captain of the other team
Cadd9
and all of this is clear to me
Dsus2                           Cadd9
they condescend and fix on me a frown
Am       Dsus2
how they 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             Dsus2
but apparently 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                     Dsus2
though I think I might lie here a little longer


Cmaj7                         Gmaj7
There's my coach he's looking down
Cmaj7                             Gmaj7
the disappointment in his knitted brow
Em
I should've known he thinks again
Cadd9
I never should have put him in
Dsus2                  Cadd9
he turns and loads the lemonade away
Am              Dsus2
and breathes in deep
Gmaj7
the sporting life
Em
the sporting life
Cadd9
the sporting life
Gmaj7
how he loves...

There's my father looking on
Cmaj7                            Gmaj7
and there's my girlfriend arm in arm
Em
with the captain of the other team
Cadd9
and all of this is clear to me
Dsus2                           Cadd9
they condescend and fix on me a frown
Am       Dsus2
how they love 
Gmaj7
the sporting life
Em
the sporting life
Cadd9
the sporting life
Gmaj7
how they love...
