This tab is almost perfect (in my opinion). The only thing I'm not
sure of is the chords C#*(a modified C# chord) & C#?(don't know the
real name for either chord). These chords don't sound quite right
but they are the closest I could come. I ask one thing though... I
you like it or don't or think I did a good job at it or have any
other comments PLEASE SEND THEM TO ME!!! This is my first tab and I
want to know how I did. Enjoy! :)

Capo on 1st Fret or no capo and play a half step lower than the

 C#* C#? G* A

E Em E Em E Em

            E    Em
I read your book
              E       Em
And I find it strange

That I know that girl
That I know her world
             E    Em
A little too well

             E    Em
And I didn't know
             E    Em
By giving my hand

That I would be written down,
sliced around, passed down
                E     E
Among strangers hands

              G    D
Three days in Rome
      C#*      C#?
Where do we go
              G      D
I'll always remember
              E    Em
Three days in Rome
[ Tab from: ]
E Em E Em

       E    Em
Never again
                 E    Em
Would I see your face

You carry a pen
and a paper and no time

And no words
    E     Em
You waste
         E      Em
You're a voyeur
                  E     Em
The worst kind of thief

To take what happened to us
To Write down everything

that went on
E                  E
Between you and me

              G    D  C#*
Three days in Rome
And I'll stand alone
              G      D
I'll always remember
              E    Em
Three days in Rome

--Wurlitzer Solo--
(Not too sure what a Wurlitzer is but here's the solo tabbed for 6-
sting. Just put full bass on your amp and keep turnin' up the gain
until it sounds close to what's on the CD.)
          G*       A          E
|-----------------------------------| {Play twice}

              E   Em
And what do I get
           E     Em
Do I get revenge

While you let all out
Without any doubt
                  E   Em
Of how this would end

             E    Em
Sometimes it goes
             E    Em
Sometimes we come

To learn by mistake
That the love you once made
           E    E
Can't be undone

Oh but Three days in Rome
I laid my heart out
C#*                   C#?
I laid my soul down alone
              G      D
I'll always remember
Three days in Rome
