The Book  Sheryl Crow


[E]  [Em]   [E]  [Em]   [E]  [Em]                         
I read your [E]book [Em]
And I find it [E]strange [Em]
That I know that [G]girl
That I know her [D]world
A little too [E]well [Em]
And I didn't [E]know [Em]
By giving my [E]hand [Em]
That I would be [G]written down,
sliced around, [D]passed down
Among strangers [E]hands [E]
Three days in [G]Rome [D]
C#* C#?
Where do we go
I'll always re[G]member [D]
Three days in [E]Rome [Em]

[E]  [Em]   [E]  [Em]                              
Never a[E]gain [Em]
Would I see your [E]face [Em]

You carry a [G]pen
and a paper and [D]no time
And no words
You [E]waste [Em]
You're a [E]voyeur [Em]
The worst kind of [E]thief [Em]

To take what [G]happened to us
To Write down [D]everything

that went on
[E]Between you and me [E]

G D C#*
Three days in Rome
And I'll stand alone
I'll always re[G]member [D]
Three days in [E]Rome [Em]

--Wurlitzer Solo--
(Not too sure what a Wurlitzer is but here's the solo tabbed for 6-
sting. Just put full bass on your amp and keep turnin' up the gain
until it sounds close to what's on the CD.)
G* A E

And what do I [E]get [Em]
Do I get re[E]venge [Em]

While you let all [G]out
Without any [D]doubt
Of how this would [E]end [Em]
Sometimes it [E]goes [Em]
Sometimes we [E]come [Em]
To learn by mis[G]take
That the love you once [D]made
Can't be un[E]done [E]
Oh but Three days in [G]Rome
[D]I laid my heart out
C#* C#?
I laid my soul down alone
I'll always re[G]member [D]
Three days in [E]Rome
