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

*   This little figure is played tons of times during the song,   *
*   so I find it easier to just refer to it as the "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 +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Jon Sebastian Frederiksen - 23rd /March /10 Just mail me at Maitinin@gmail.com with questions, comments and corrections!
