When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease (Harper)
---------------------------------------
                

When the day is done, and the ball has spun
          C                   Fmaj7
In the umpire's pocket away,
       C                Dm          
And all remains, in the groundsman's pains, 
    C                    Fmaj7
For the rest of time and a day.
    C                       G
There'll be one mad dog and his master, pushing for 4 with the spin.
             C                   Em      C                      Dm
On a dusty pitch, with two pounds six, of willowwood in the sun.
      C                Fmaj7              C                 G

When an old cricketer leaves the crease, you never know whether he's gone,
        C             Fmaj7                  C                      Dm
If maybe you're catching a fleeting glimpse, of a twelfth man at silly mid-on.
    C                       Fmaj7                 C                        G
And it could be Geoff, and it could be John, 
        C                     Fmaj7
With a new ball sting in his tail.
       C                     Dm
And it could be me, and it could be thee,
       C                   Fmaj7
And it could be the sting in the ale.........sting in the ale.
       C                         G           Fmaj7

Solo on verse

Verse 2 (chords as above - sorry don't have the words to hand)

Chorus (as above)
--

Chord note for for beginners:
All chords played as normally given in any book in standard tuning in 1st 
position (ie at the bottom of the neck - which is physically the top if you're 
holding the neck upwards!). Note that Roy plays G with 4 fingers - fingering
D on the B string, which makes the chord sound nicer (you dont get the jump
out of a chord, better to miss the 3rd(B) than the 5th(D) in general) 
i.e.:

        ............playing D instead of open B
        :
