A fun, easy song.  No capo, comment with corrections, done by ear.

                           F
This city is silver in the moon
                                  Am
And mountains heaped with sugar spoons
                             Dm
The click and clatter of my feet
             Bb               C
Along the crooked cobbled streets
          F
Like castanets

                              F
Down past the window shuttered tight
                          Am
The hollow of a haunted night
                              Dm
It's raining now out on the beach
              Bb             C
The chitter chatter of my teeth
          F
Like castanets


                           F
I'm following the coffee trail
                               Am
And drink it black and by the bail
                         Dm
The pesos turn to paper cups
              Bb            C
My fingers tremble at the touch
           F

And on the cable car I climb
                          Am
Up to the sacred virgin shrine
                              Dm
This city's smothered in the smog
             Bb           C
The snippy snap of wild dogs

I ask just what they celebrate

Daniello says he can't explain
                 Bb       C
But he'll be clappin' anyway
