VERSE 1

D                        Bm7 
Katie Casey was baseball mad,

Em 
Had the fever and had it bad;

A7                   Em        A7 
Just to root for the home town crew,

                D 
Every sou Katie blew

                         Bm7 
On a Saturday, her young beau

Em 
Called to see if she'd like to go,

   E7                  A 
To see a show but Miss Kate said "no,

     B7            E7      A 
I'll tell you what you can do:"

CHORUS

D                  A7 
Take me out to the ball game,

D                    A7 
Take me out with the crowd;

B7                      Em 
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,

E7                A7 
I don't care if I never get back,

       D                        A7 
Let me root, root, root for the home team,

   D                     G 
If they don't win it's a shame

         Em7  Bb7  D 
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out,

       E7  A7   D 
At the old ball game.

VERSE 2

D                       Bm7 
Katie Casey saw all the games,

Em 
Knew the players by their first names;

A7              Em     A7 
Told the umpire he was wrong,

                   D 
All along good and strong

                               Bm7 
When the score was just two to two,

Em 
Katie Casey knew what to do,

E7                   A 
Just to cheer up the boys she knew,

    B7            E7        A 
She made the gang sing this song:

CHORUS

D                  A7 
Take me out to the ball game,

D                    A7 
Take me out with the crowd;

B7                      Em 
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,

E7                A7 
I don't care if I never get back,

       D                        A7 
Let me root, root, root for the home team,

   D                     G 
If they don't win it's a shame

         Em7  Bb7  D 
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out,

       E7  A7   D 
At the old ball game.
