Ab Db Ab Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll sail around the world Bbm Fm I will be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl Bbm Eb How many nights of talking in hotel rooms can you take? Bbm Eb How many nights of limping round on pagan holidays? Db Fm Oh elope with me in private and we’ll set something ablaze Bbm Eb Fm a trail for the devil to erase Ab Db Ab San Francisco’s calling us, the Giants and Mets will play Bbm Fm Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay? Bbm Eb We hung about the stadium, we’ve got no place to stay Bbm Eb We hung about the tenderloin and tenderly you tell Db Fm About the saddest book you ever read, it always makes you cry Bbm Eb Fm The statue’s crying too and well he may Ab Db Ab I love you I’ve a drowning grip on your adoring face Bbm Fm I love you my responsibility has found a place Bbm Eb Beside you and strong warnings in the guise of gentle words Bbm Eb Come wave upon me from the wider family net absurd Db Fm “You’ll take care of her, I know it, you will do a better job” Bbm Eb Fm Maybe, but not what she deserves Ab Db Ab Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll drink ourselves awake Bbm Fm We’ll taste the coffee houses and award certificates Bbm Eb a privy seal to keep the feel of 1960 style Bbm Eb We’ll comment on the decor and we’ll help the passer by Db Fm And at dusk when work is over we’ll continue the debate Bbm Eb Fm In a borrowed bedroom virginal and spare Ab Db Ab The catcher hits for .318 and catches every day Bbm Fm The pitcher puts religion first and rests on holidays Bbm Eb He goes into cathedrals and lies prostrate on the floor Bbm Eb He knows the drink affects his speed he’s praying for a doorway Db Fm Back into the life he wants and the confession of the bench Bbm Eb Fm Life outside the diamond is a wrench Ab Db Ab I wish that you were here with me to pass the dull weekend Bbm Fm I know it wouldn’t come to love, my heroine pretend Bbm Eb a lady stepping from the songs we love until this day Bbm Eb You’d settle for an epitaph like “Walk Away, Renee” Db Fm The sun upon the roof in winter will draw you out like a flower Bbm Eb Fm Meet you at the statue in an hour Bbm Eb Fm Meet you at the statue in an hour
