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