WHEN I PAINT MY MASTERPIECE- Bob Dylan

                    A         D           A
Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble
D          A      E         A
Ancient footprints are everywhere
D         A                        D      A
You can almost think that you're seein' double
D     A          E                     A
On a cord, dark night on the Spanish Stairs
E7                                A    D
Got to hurry on back to my hotel room
E7                                          A
Where I've got me a date with Botticelli's niece
D       A                D               A
She promised that she'd be right there with me 
D        A   E          A
When I paint my masterpiece

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

BRIDGE:
 Dm                                 A
Sailin'round the world in a dirty gondola
C#m           D                    E     D  A  B7  E7
Oh to be back in the land of Coca Cola!

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 A       E           D    A Bm A
When I paint my masterpiece

(from Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 2, done around 1971)
