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