D A D A E (no chord) A D A Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble, E A D ancient footprints are everywhere. A D A You could almost think that your seeing double, E A On the cold, dark night on the Spanish Stairs. E 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. D A D A E (no chord) A D A Oh, the hours we spent, inside the Coliseum. E A Dodging lions, and a-wasting time, D A D A oh those mighty kings of the jungle, I could hardly stand to see'em E A Yes it sure has been a long, hard drive. E A Train wheels a-running thru the back of my memory, E A D When I ran on a hilltop following a pack of wild geese, A D A Someday everything is gonna sound like a rhapsody E A When I paint my masterpiece. Am C#m Sailing round the world in a dirty gondola, D Bb E D C#m D E Oh to be back in the land of, Coca-cola. D A D A Well I left Rome, and landed in Brussels, E A On a plane ride so bumby that I almost cried, D A D A Clergy men in uniform, and young girls pulling mussels, E 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 E A Someday, its gonna be different, When I paint my masterpiece.
