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