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


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


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


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


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


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

a flower


CmCm chord              FF chord            GmGm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
CmCm chord              FF chord            GmGm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
