Capo 2

Intro:
C F C F Am

Verse 1:
Am                       E
 From candles burning, shadows in the night,
Am               E
 People praying for eternal life,
         Dm
 But my mind just keeps on wandering,
   Em                                 F
 Away from this serene and hallowed place,
       C       G
 To a woman's face.

Verse 2:
Am                E
 She was lovely, lovely as a dream,
Am                        E
 She had the beauty, the beauty of a queen,
               Dm                       
 They say that every man who meets her,
  Em                   F
 sooner or later will fall,
       C            G
 Even me that they call.

Chorus:
      C                        Am
 The master of invention, the painter of our times,
        Dm                              G               G7
 I can take you round the Heavens and show you how to fly,
          C                                Am
 'Twas a moment caught forever, there was something in her eyes,
        Dm                        G          C     F C F
 But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled.

Verse 3:
Am                        E
 She sat before me, this woman so divine,
Am                       E
 Something eternal was shining in her eyes,
      Dm           
 Oh, Lisa del Giocondo, 
     Em                         F
 you opened up a world of mystery,
                G          G7
 When you were looking at me.

Chorus:
      C                        Am
 The master of invention, the painter of our times,
        Dm                              G               G7
 I can take you round the Heavens and show you how to fly,
          C                                Am
 'Twas a moment caught forever, there was something in her eyes,
        Dm                        G          Am
 But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled.

Bridge:
Am                      F           Dm                   G
 Shame the devil in my heart but I can't stop thinking about her,
       Dm                 G            C 
 And what she's doing to me, doing to me.

Chorus:
Am Dm G G7
          C                         Am
 'Twas a moment of perfection, the canvas never lies,
        Dm                        G          C    F
 But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled.
                 C     F
 Why Mona Lisa smiled?
                 C     F
 Why Mona Lisa smiled?
                 C     
 Why Mona Lisa smiled?
