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


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


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


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


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


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

a flower


DmDm chord              GG chord            AmAm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
DmDm chord              GG chord            AmAm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
