E Lurleen: Oh the bases were empty on the diamond of my heart, Fm When the coach called me up to the plate, E I'd been swingin', and missin', at lovin' and kissin', A E My average was point double oh eight. E So I spit on my hands, knocked the dirt from my spikes, A And pointed right towards centre field, A E This time I'm hitting a home run, A E This time the love is for real. A I'll slide... I'll steal... I'll sacrifice E A lovin' fly for you, C#m I been slumping all season but now I found a reason, A I struck on a love that is true. A E I used to play the field, A E I used to be a roamer, A B E But the season's turning 'round for me now, A B E I finally bagged me a homer. A B E D - A That's right, I finally bagged me a Homer.
