The Simpsons - Talkin' Softball (music by Terry Cashman)

Capo 1

G G#dim7 Am D7

      G             Gmaj7/F#
Well, Mr. Burns had done it,
     G7/F            G6/E
The Power Plant had won it,
      Am            Ammaj7           Am7    D7
With Roger Clemens clucking all the while,
      Am               Ammaj7           Am7   D7
Mike Scioscia's tragic illness made us smile,
       D7               Am              Fdim/G#   D7
While Wade Boggs lay unconscious on the bar-room tile.

               G  G#dim7
We're talkin' softball,
      Am           D7
From Maine to San Diego,
         G  G#dim7
Talkin' softball,
 Am            D7
Mattingly and Canseco,
     Am           D7              Am    D7
Ken Griffey's grotesquely swollen jaw,
 Am               D7              Am    D7
Steve Sax and his run-in with the law,
               Am      Am/B D7
We're talkin' Homer,
               G    G#dim7   Am  D7
Ozzie and the Straw.

the less common chords:

G#dim7   4x343x (you can leave the high E string open if you want to)
Ammaj7   x02110
Fdim/G#  xxx101
Am/B     x2x210 (it's just a little walkup to the D7)

During the verse I play these chords as follows:

G        xx5003
Gmaj7/F# xx4002
G7/F     xx3001
G6/E     xx2000
Am       xx2210
Ammaj7   xx2110
Am7      xx2010
D7       xx0212
thumb strike^ the third string on the Am chords to emphasize the walkdown.
