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