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


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


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


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


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


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

a flower


EmEm chord              AA chord            BmBm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
EmEm chord              AA chord            BmBm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
