CD: Boats to Build
From: Andrew@lyonap.force9.co.uk
Capo 3
Intro: C7
[C7]Now Picasso said in 1910, I'm gonna paint me a [F]mando[C7]lin
[C7]It could be cubes it could be curves
[C7]I like to mix [F]paint with [C7]nerve
[C7]I load my brush and fire away
Paint me a hole in the light of day
Well you can [G]play it straight or play it from left field
You [Am]got to play it just the [F]way you feel
[G]Come on boys, play it again
[Am]Play it on Picasso's [F]mandolin
[C7]Well it's colouring books and drinking wine
It's hard to stay [F]between the [C7]lines
[C7]There ain't no rule if you don't break it
There ain't no chance if you [F]don't [C7]take it
[C7]The damdest thing he'd ever heard
Was trying to learn a thing from a Mockingbird
Well you can [G]play it straight or play it from left field
You [Am]got to play it just the [F]way you feel
[G]Come on boys, play it again
[Am]Play it on Picasso's [F]mandolin
[C7]Now Picasso said before he died
There's one more painting I'd [F]like to [C7]try
[C7]Well the doctor held is breathe and then
Picasso nailed a [F]mando[C7]lin
[C7]He was born in Spain and died in France
He was not scared of baggy pants
Well you can [G]play it straight or play it from left field
You [Am]got to play it just the [F]way you feel
[G]Come on boys, play it again
[Am]Play it on Picasso's [F]mandolin
[G]Play it straight or play it from left field
You [Am]got to play it just the [F]way you feel
[G]Come on boys, play it again
[Am]Play it on Picasso's [F]mandolin
