Bob Dylan - When I Paint My Masterpiece: chords

                    A
Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble,
              E               A
Ancient footprints are everywhere.
You can almost think that you're seein' double
                 E                    A
On a cold, dark night on the Spanish Stairs.
 E                          D     A
Got to hurry on back to my hotel room,
            E                       D       A
Where I've got me a date with Botticelli's niece.
           A
Yup, she promised that she'd be right there with me
            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,
as the daylight hours do increase
Someday, everything is gonna be smooth like a rhapsody
When I paint my masterpiece.

F7     A#       D#        A#
I left Rome and landed in Brussels,
       A#/F                    F         A#
With a picture of a tall oak tree by my side.
A#                             D#/A#         A#
Clergymen in uniform and young girls pullin' muscles,
A#/F                    F               A#
Everyone was there and nobody tried to hide.
F                   A#
Newspapermen eating candy
F                      D#    A#
Had to be held down by big police.
A#                     D#/A#    A#
Someday, everything is gonna be diff'rent
       A#/F F         A#
When I paint my masterpiece.
