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


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


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


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


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


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

a flower


FmFm chord              BbBb chord            CmCm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
FmFm chord              BbBb chord            CmCm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
