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


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


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


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


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


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

a flower


GmGm chord              CC chord            DmDm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
GmGm chord              CC chord            DmDm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
