Picassos Mandolin

Song Author Guy Clark Submitted by: Anonymous
Capo 3

[C7]    
[C7]Now Picasso said in 1910, I'm gonna paint me a [F]mando[C7]lin   
[C7]It could be cubes it could be curves
[C7]I like to mix [F]paint with [C7]nerve
[C7]I load my brush and fire away

Paint me a hole in the light of day

Well you can [G]play it straight or play it from left field
You [Am]got to play it just the [F]way you feel
[G]Come on boys, play it again
[Am]Play it on Picasso's [F]mandolin

[C7]Well it's colouring books and drinking wine
It's hard to stay [F]between the [C7]lines
[C7]There ain't no rule if you don't break it
There ain't no chance if you [F]don't [C7]take it
[C7]The damdest thing he'd ever heard

Was trying to learn a thing from a Mockingbird

Well you can [G]play it straight or play it from left field
You [Am]got to play it just the [F]way you feel
[G]Come on boys, play it again
[Am]Play it on Picasso's [F]mandolin

[C7]Now Picasso said before he died
There's one more painting I'd [F]like to [C7]try   
[C7]Well the doctor held is breathe and then
Picasso nailed a [F]mando[C7]lin   
[C7]He was born in Spain and died in France

He was not scared of baggy pants

Well you can [G]play it straight or play it from left field
You [Am]got to play it just the [F]way you feel
[G]Come on boys, play it again
[Am]Play it on Picasso's [F]mandolin

[G]Play it straight or play it from left field
You [Am]got to play it just the [F]way you feel
[G]Come on boys, play it again
[Am]Play it on Picasso's [F]mandolin



Capo 3


Now Picasso said in 1910, I'm gonna paint me a mandolin
It could be cubes it could be curves
I like to mix paint with nerve
I load my brush and fire away

Paint me a hole in the light of day

Well you can play it straight or play it from left field
You got to play it just the way you feel
Come on boys, play it again
Play it on Picasso's mandolin

Well it's colouring books and drinking wine
It's hard to stay between the lines
There ain't no rule if you don't break it
There ain't no chance if you don't take it
The damdest thing he'd ever heard

Was trying to learn a thing from a Mockingbird

Well you can play it straight or play it from left field
You got to play it just the way you feel
Come on boys, play it again
Play it on Picasso's mandolin

Now Picasso said before he died
There's one more painting I'd like to try
Well the doctor held is breathe and then
Picasso nailed a mandolin
He was born in Spain and died in France

He was not scared of baggy pants

Well you can play it straight or play it from left field
You got to play it just the way you feel
Come on boys, play it again
Play it on Picasso's mandolin

Play it straight or play it from left field
You got to play it just the way you feel
Come on boys, play it again
Play it on Picasso's mandolin
