   INTRO:  Aadd9 - Esus4/B - D6add9
           Aadd9 - Esus4/B - Esus4
           (repeat)


           A        E/B   D
       I.  the stadium in Cashville
           A     F#m7  E
           sits upon a landfill.
               F#m        F#m/A
           the left-field grass,
              Bm
           it sways in the air.
           A      F#m7
           nobody ever  
           E
           plays over there.


           A        E/B        D
      II.  the cheerleaders in Cashville
           A      F#m7   E
           dance upon an anthill.
           F#m        F#m/A
           but in the dark,
                Bm
           when wallets are still,
           A        F#m7
           they all start
                 E
           their strange quadrille...


           D                  A
  CHORUS:  doing the two-step waltz,  (answer on guitar)
           D                  E
           doing the two-step waltz.  (answer on guitar)
              A
           if you can hold onto
           D
           one-two-three, one-two,
           A             E        Aadd9  (into next section)
           you'll do the two-step waltz.


 REPEAT INTRO:  Aadd9 - Esus4/B - D6add9
                Aadd9 - Esus4/B - Esus4
                (repeat)


           A           E/B     D
     III.  each batter makes a single,
           A          F#m7    E
           and fatter pockets jingle.
           F#m            F#m/A
           they never hit anything
           Bm
           over your head.
           A         F#m7
           Cashville plays it
           E
           safe instead.


           A           E/B     D
      IV.  six umpires run the show.
           A       F#m7     E
           players come and go.
           F#m     F#m/A
           some of them
                Bm
           will imitate
           A         F#m7
           movements they
               E
           did not create...


           D                  A
  CHORUS:  doing the two-step waltz,  (answer on guitar)
           D                  E
           doing the two-step waltz.  (answer on guitar)
              A
           if you can hold onto
           D
           one-two-three, one-two,
           A             E        F     Dm   A
           you'll do the two-step waltz.         (into next verse)


                  A      E/B  D
       V.  twelve locks, no  escape-o.
                A      F#m7    E
           send trucks full of capos.
           F#m     F#m/A
           "1 - 4 - 5"
               Bm
           the plates all read.
           A    F#m7
           one  key
              E
           is all you need.


             D                  A
END CHORUS:   (guitar figure)   waltzing a two-step,
             D                  E
              (guitar figure)   dancing a new step,
             A
             from the beginning
             D
             to the ninth inning
                 A         E        Aadd9 - Esus4/B - D6add9
             I'm doing the two-step waltz.
                A
                from the beginning
                D
                to the ninth inning
                    A         E        Aadd9  (into ending)
                I'm doing the two-step waltz.


  ENDING:  Aadd9 - Esus4/B - D6add9
           Aadd9 - Esus4/B - Esus4
           Aadd9 - Esus4/B - D6add9
           Aadd9 - Esus4/B - Aadd9
