GG chord                                     CC chord              GG chord
Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll sail around the world
AmAm chord                            EmEm chord
I will be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl
     AmAm chord                          DD chord
How many nights of talking in hotel rooms can you take?
     AmAm chord                             DD chord
How many nights of limping round on pagan holidays?
      CC chord                               EmEm chord
Oh elope with me in private and we’ll set something ablaze
   AmAm chord            DD chord         EmEm chord
a trail for the devil to erase


GG chord                               CC chord                    GG chord
San Francisco’s calling us, the Giants and Mets will play
AmAm chord                                EmEm chord
Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay?
   AmAm chord                            DD chord
We hung about the stadium, we’ve got no place to stay
   AmAm chord                            DD chord
We hung about the tenderloin and tenderly you tell
          CC chord                              EmEm chord
About the saddest book you ever read, it always makes you cry
    AmAm chord              DD chord               EmEm chord
The statue’s crying too and well he may


  GG chord                                CC chord            GG chord
I love you I’ve a drowning grip on your adoring face
  AmAm chord                      EmEm chord
I love you my responsibility has found a place 
  AmAm chord                                  DD chord
Beside you and strong warnings in the guise of gentle words
     AmAm chord                          DD chord
Come wave upon me from the wider family net absurd
             CC chord                                EmEm chord
“You’ll take care of her, I know it, you will do a better job”
AmAm chord         DD chord              EmEm chord
Maybe, but not what she deserves


  GG chord                                  CC chord               GG chord
Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll drink ourselves awake
      AmAm chord                            EmEm chord
We’ll taste the coffee houses and award certificates
  AmAm chord                             DD chord
a privy seal to keep the feel of 1960 style
      AmAm chord                             DD chord
We’ll comment on the decor and we’ll help the passer by
       CC chord                               EmEm chord
And at dusk when work is over we’ll continue the debate
     AmAm chord               DD chord             EmEm chord
In a borrowed bedroom virginal and spare


    GG chord                         CC chord             GG chord
The catcher hits for .318 and catches every day
    AmAm chord                              EmEm chord
The pitcher puts religion first and rests on holidays
   AmAm chord                            DD chord
He goes into cathedrals and lies prostrate on the floor
   AmAm chord                                     DD chord
He knows the drink affects his speed he’s praying for 
a doorway 
       CC chord                                EmEm chord
Back into the life he wants and the confession of the bench
AmAm chord               DD chord            EmEm chord
Life outside the diamond is a wrench


  GG chord                                  CC chord             GG chord
I wish that you were here with me to pass the dull weekend
  AmAm chord                                EmEm chord
I know it wouldn’t come to love, my heroine pretend
  AmAm chord                              DD chord
a lady stepping from the songs we love until this day
      AmAm chord                          DD chord
You’d settle for an epitaph like “Walk Away, Renee”
          CC chord                               EmEm chord
The sun upon the roof in winter will draw you out like 

a flower


AmAm chord              DD chord            EmEm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
AmAm chord              DD chord            EmEm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
