I'm unsure about the lyrics.
note: the A is barred A

Capo: 2nd

 E                                   A               E
Elope with me Miss Private and we'll sail around the world

F#m                          C#m
I will be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl

    F#m                         B
How many nights of talking in hotel rooms can you take?

    F#m                             B
How many nights of limping round on pagan holidays?

    A                                 C#m
Oh elope with me in private and we'll set something ablaze

  F#m           B         C#m
A trail for the devil to erase

E                               A                    E
San Francisco's calling us, the Giants and Mets will play

F#m                               C#m
Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay

   F#m                           B
We hung about the stadium, we've got no place to stay

   F#m                           B
We hung about the tenderloin and tenderly you tell

          A                              C#m
About the saddest book you ever read. It always makes you cry

    F#m             B             C#m
The statue's crying too and Willy May.

  E                                A            E
I love you I've a drowning grip on your adoring face

  F#m                     C#m
I love you my responsibility has found a place

  F#m                                 B
Beside you and strong warnings in the guise of gentle words

     F#m                          B
Come wave upon me from the family wider net absurd

             A                                C#m
"You'll take care of her, I know it, you will do a better job"

F#m        B              C#m
Maybe, but not what she deserves

 E                                   A                E
Elope with me Miss Private and we'll drink ourselves awake

      F#m                          C#m
We'll taste the coffee houses and award certificates

  F#m                            B
A privy seal to keep the feel of 1960's style

      F#m                            B
We'll comment on the decor and we'll help the passer by

       A                               C#m
And at dusk when work is over we'll continue the debate

     F#m              B            C#m
In a borrowed bedroom virginal and spare

    E                         A             E
The catcher hits for. 318 and catches every day

    F#m                             C#m
The pitcher puts religion first and rests on holidays

   F#m                           B
He goes into cathedrals and lies prostrate on the floor

   F#m                                    B
He knows the drink affects his speed he's praying for a doorway

       A                               C#m
Back into the life he wants and the confession of the bench

F#m              B            C#m
Life outside the diamond is a wrench

  E                                  A                E
I wish that you were here with me to pass the dull weekend

  F#m                               C#m
I know it wouldn't come to love, my heroine pretend

  F#m                             B
A lady stepping from the songs we love until this day

      F#m                         B
You'd settle for an epitaph like "Walk Away, Renee"

         A                                C#m
The sun upon the roof in winter will draw you out like a flower

     F#m             B            C#m
I'll meet you at the statue in an hour

F#m             B            C#m
Meet you at the statue in an hour
