Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Oh, the streets of R[A]ome are fi[D]lled with ru[A]bble
[D]Ancient foo[A]tprints[E] are every[A]where
[D]You can al[A]most think that you're se[D]ein' do[A]uble
[D]On a c[A]ord, dark n[E]ight on the Spanish St[A]airs
[E7]Got to hurry on back to my hotel r[A]oom[D]
[E7]Where I've got me a date with Botticelli's n[A]iece
[D]She prom[A]ised that she'd b[D]e right there wi[A]th me
[D]When I pa[A]int [E]my masterpi[A]ece
Oh, the hours I've spent inside the Coliseum
Dodging lions and wastin' time
Oh, those mighty kings of the jungle
I could hardly stand to see 'em
Yes, it sure has been a long, hard climb
Train wheels runnin' through the back of my memory
When I ran on the hilltop following a pack of wild geese
Someday, everything is gonna be smooth like a rhapsody
When I paint my masterpiece
S[Dm]ailin'round the world in a dirty go[A]ndola
[C#m]Oh to be back [D]in the land of Coca C[E]ola![D] [A] [B7] [E7]
I left Rome and landed in Brussels
On a plane ride so bumpy that I almost cried
Clergymen in uniform and young girls pullin' muscles
Everyone was there to greet me when I stepped inside
Newspapermen eating candy had to be held down by big police Someday,
everything is gonna be different
[D]Wh[A]en I pai[E]nt my master[D]piece[A] [Bm] [A]
(from Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 2, done around 1971)
