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


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


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


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


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


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

a flower


EbmEbm chord              AbAb chord            BbmBbm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
EbmEbm chord              AbAb chord            BbmBbm chord
Meet you at the statue in an hour
