Piazza New York Catcher Chords

[Verse 1]

G                                    
Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll 
C              G
sail around the world
Am                            Em
I will be your Ferdinand and you my 
wayward girl
    Am                          D
How many nights of talking in hotel 
rooms can you take?
    Am                             
How many nights of limping round on 
D
pagan holidays?
     C                               
Oh elope with me in private and we’ll 
Em
set something ablaze
   Am            D         Em
A trail for the devil to erase


[Verse 2]

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


[Verse 3]

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


[Verse 4]

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


[Verse 5]

   G                         C       
The catcher hits for .318 and catches 
     G
every day
   Am                              
The pitcher puts religion first and 
Em
rests on holidays
  Am                            
He goes into cathedrals and lies 
D
prostrate on the floor
  Am                                
He knows the drink affects his speed 
    D
he’s praying for 
A doorway
      C                            
Back into the life he wants and the 
   Em
confession of the bench
Am               D            Em
Life outside the diamond is a wrench


[Verse 6]

 G                                  
I wish that you were here with me to 
C             G
pass the dull weekend
 Am                                
I know it wouldn’t come to love, my 
Em
heroine pretend
 Am                              D
A lady stepping from the songs we love 
until this day
     Am                          D
You’d settle for an epitaph like “Walk 
Away, Renee”
         C                          
The sun upon the roof in winter will 
    Em
draw you out like 
A flower

Am              D            Em
Meet you at the statue in an hour
Am              D            Em
Meet you at the statue in an hour
