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?
