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


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


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


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


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


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

a flower


DbmDbm chord              GbGb chord            AbmAbm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
DbmDbm chord              GbGb chord            AbmAbm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
