In this beautiful songs there are at least three guitar tracks.
This tab included all guitar parts except what's played exactly in the
Chorus and the 3. and 4. Verse, since it's impossible to hear clearly.
Anyway, enjoy this Steely Dan pearl and guitar masterpiece! :D

 Guitar Solo:
(Verse + 1x Figure, Verse + 2x Figure)

 LYRICS
**********
Johnny's playroom
Is a bunker filled with sand
He's become a third world man

Smokey Sunday
He's been mobilized since dawn
Now he's crouching on the lawn
He's a third world man

Soon you'll throw down your disguise
We'll see behind those bright eyes
By and by
When the sidewalks are safe
For the little guy

I saw the fireworks
I believed that I was dreaming 
'Til the neighbours came out screaming
He's a third world man

When he's crying out
I just sing that Ghana Rondo
E'lera del terzo mondo
He's a third world man
