The Greatest
By Kenny Rogers  written by Don Schlitz
 
C
Little boy in a baseball hat
       G7                    F        C
Stands in the field with his ball and bat
 
Says I am the greatest player of them all
         G7                         F             C
Puts his bat on his shoulder and he tosses up his ball
 
        G7
And the ball goes up and the ball comes down
F                          C
Swings his bat all the way around
    G7
The world so still you can hear the sound
    F                     C
The baseball falls to the ground
 
 
Now the little boy doesn't say a word
G7                F        C
Picks up his ball he is undeterred
 
Says I am the greatest there has ever been
                 G7           F        C
And he grits his teeth and he tries it again
 
        G7
And the ball goes up and the ball comes down
F                         C
Swings his bat all the way around
    G7
The world so still you can hear the sound
    F                     C
The baseball falls to the ground
 
F
He makes no excuses he shows no fear
        C                   G7
He just closes his eyes and listens to the cheers
 
C
Little boy he adjusts his hat
G7                F             C
Picks up his ball stares at his bat
 
Says I am the greatest the game is on the line
                G7    F        C
And he gives his all  one more time
 
        G7
And the ball goes up and the moon so bright
F
Swings his bat with all his might
    G7
The world's as still as still can be
    F                                C
The baseball falls and that's strike three
 
 
Now it's supper-time and his momma calls
G7                     F                C
Little boy starts home with his bat and ball
 
Says I am the greatest that is a fact
         G7              F                C
But even I didn't know I could pitch like that
 
 
Says I am the greatest that is understood
         G7              F                C
But even I didn't know I could pitch that good
