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


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


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


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


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


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

a flower


AbmAbm chord              DbDb chord            EbmEbm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
AbmAbm chord              DbDb chord            EbmEbm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
