Tabbed By:Matt Kelly (Ali)
This tab is almost perfect (in my opinion). The only thing I'm not
sure of is the chords C#*(a modified C# chord) & C#?(don't know the
real name for either chord). These chords don't sound quite right
but they are the closest I could come. I ask one thing though... I
you like it or don't or think I did a good job at it or have any
other comments PLEASE SEND THEM TO ME!!! This is my first tab and I
want to know how I did. Enjoy! :)
Capo on 1st Fret or no capo and play a half step lower than the
C#* C#? G* A

[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
