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


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


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


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


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


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

a flower


BbmBbm chord              EbEb chord            FmFm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
BbmBbm chord              EbEb chord            FmFm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
