“Take Me Out To The Ball Game”
Words by Jack Norworth; Music by Albert Von Tilzer

C                                                 D7
Katie Casey was baseball mad, had the fever and had it bad,
G7                                                                              C
Just to root for the home town crew, ev’ry sou, Katie blew.
On a Saturday, her young beau called to see if she’d like to go,
To see a show, but Miss Katie said, “No, I’ll tell you what I can do:”

C                            G    G7      C                               G
Take me out to the ball game, take me out with the crowd.
A                     A7                Dm                D                     G7
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack; I don’t care if I never get back.
G7       C                                G        G7        C7                           A7
Let me root, root, root for the home team; if they don’t win it’s a shame.
A7       F      D7   C                              A7           D7  G7  C
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out at the old ball game.

Katie Casey saw all the games, knew the players by their first names,
Told the umpire he was wrong, all along, good and strong.
When the score was just two to two, Katie Casey knew what to do
Just to cheer up the boys she knew, she made the gang sing this song:

Take me out to the ball game, take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack; I don’t care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team; if they don’t win it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out at the old ball game.
