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