INTRO

VERSE 1
D                    A              D             A
 Oh, the streets of  Rome are       filled with   rubble,
        E                    A
Ancient foot prints are everywhere.
D         A                      D      A
You could almost think that your seein' double,
       E                               A
On the cold, dark night on the Spanish Stairs.
E                         E7    A
Gotta hurry on back to my hotel room,
        E                                            A      D
Where I got me a date with a pretty little girl from Greece.
    A               D        A
She promised she'd  be there with me,
       E              A
When I paint my masterpiece.
 
 
INTERLUDE
D  A   D   A   E
 
 
VERSE 2
        D        A                 D   A
Oh, the hours we spent, inside the Coliseum.
        E                    A     D
Dodging lions, and a-wasting time,
         A                                   D               A
Oh those mighty kings of the jungle, I could hardly stand to see'em
       E               E7          A
Yes it sure has been a long, hard climb.
E                                             A
Train wheels a running through the back of my memory,
       E                                         A     D
When I ran on a hilltop followin' a pack of wild geese,
A                           D            A
Someday everything is gonna sound like a rhapsody
       E              A
When I paint my masterpiece.
 
 
BRIDGE
Dm                                    A
Sailing round the world in a dirty gondola,
C#m        D                    E   D    A/C#  Cdim7   E
Oh to be back in the land of, Coca cola.
 
 
VERSE 3
     D      A         D         A
Well I left Rome, and landed in Brussels,
     E                          E7     A
On a plane ride so bumpy that I almost cried,
D             A                       D        A
Clergy men in uniform, and young girls pulling mussels,
             E                         E7        A
Everyone was there to greet me when I stepped inside,
E                       A
Newspaper men eating candy,
E                            A    D
Had to be held down by big police.
A                      D        A
Someday, everything is gonna be different,
       E              A
When I paint my masterpiece.
 
D      A       D       A
