There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Here's another simple one, using only three repeating chords for the whole song. In this country, the duo
decides to make a change in their diet and eat some thinly-slide potato wedges that have been cooked in 
hot oil, a staple food apparently referred to as "fries." 




G                       D
So there we were in the heart
      C                               G
Where everything that we know got its start
C                 D
Then it all fell apart
       G                     C
Well I guess that's what you get
         C           D        G
When you spread yourself too thin

           G              D
But we had bigger fish to fry
     C                  G
Like findin' a place to sleep at night
  C                 D
I bought a slice of pizza
        G                 C
Just to try and kill some time
          C           D         G 
And for a minute everything was fine

         G             D
We had a number in our notebook
           C               G 
But it was way too late to call
       C          D
It was well after midnight
         G                             C
When our train passed through the city walls
          C         D       G
We didn't know this girl at all

   G              D 
So we got out our travel book
   C              G
To read about the neighborhood
C                   D
Said it wasn't very good
       G               C
But it felt alright to me
      C         D           G
All I wanted to do was go to sleep

      G                 D
So we walked around the corner
       C             G
And we found a cheap motel
   G                D
We knew we couldn't afford it
       C      G      
But we said, "Oh well"

                 C                G  
When you've been on the train all day
         C                 G           
In a big city in a new country
            C              G
You're real tired and it's late
               C              G
Sometimes it's better just to pay

That's the way it goes
Sometimes you know
It'd be okay
D         C      D       G
And after all we were in Rome

     G                  D
Well it had been a long time
      C              G
Since we had slept inside
   C                D
We woke up late the next day
        G               C
And the sun was shining bright
   C                  D                G
We paid our bill, we cried, we went outside

         G                   D
Now they got their bread and circus
            C     G
And I guess so do we
    C                   D
But they got theirs for free
             G                  C
I think that we're bein' ripped off
          C           D            G
We must destroy all empires at any cost

            G             D
When you're standin' in a temple
               C               G
Of a long-gone God it seems so simple
C         D        G              C    
Everybody dies, no matter who you are
          C                     D            G
From far enough away our sun is just another star

        G               D
And the statue of Moses that we saw
    C                         G
Had horns on his head and was eight feet tall
C                  D
Maybe that was the case,
        G                C
No it's not our place to say
C                 D               G
Maybe some things just don't translate

G                 D 
We called up this girl
        C          G
Who had ordered a CD
            C             G
She was the first from Italy
       D              G
And we asked for hospitality
C                 G    C               G
She said we could stay at her parents' place

     C                G
They were so sweet to us
          C              G
It was so nice to meet a punk
She took good care of you and me
She bought us soy ice cream
Her mom cooked dinner every night
          C        D     G
It was so hard for us to leave

G                        D
And the stray dogs of Pompey
C                    G
Were our guides that day
They became our friends,
We were a lot like them
     G              C
They taught us many things
C                            D              G
And all they wanted was some food for their pay

G                   D
Then we went to the coast
          C                  G
Where the roads are wound so close
        C                 D
And the buses bounce from side-to-side
   G                     C
We thought that we might die
C                           D                 G
We couldn't find a place to sleep at all that night

G                    D
The city filled with scooters
        C          G
Held so many mysteries
  G                D
I saw the weirdest thing there
       C               G
That I think I'll ever see
         C                 G
It was a pizza topped with octopus,
  C                 G
A whole arm on each slice

C                   G
But I got my dinner there
         C                 G
It was a pizza topped with fries
And Italy was nice
Made us feel right at home
Our money's in the fountain
       C      D       G
And we will return to Rome
