Intro: F-C-F-C
C
Last year I took a trip

F
To a world across the Sea

C
I went to Rome and Pisa

F
They didn't do that much for me

Dm
The same goes for Firenze

Gm
and even Napoli

G
But when I saw Ravenna

C
I fell in love with Italy

.......

F C
(chorus) Oh Ravenna Ravenna

F
The jewel of Italy

C
Nestled in Romagna

F
It's where I want to be

Bb m
that's where I met my true love

F Dm
Who's waiting there for me

Gm
In a piazza in Ravenna

C F
In sunny Italy

C
I went to Portofino

F
Took the train up to Milan

C
And over to Torino

F
But I did not belong

Dm
Oh, Genoa was pretty

(kinda whispery Gm
But just not right for me

G
Cause my heart was in Ravenna

C
In the heart of Italy.


F C
(chorus) Oh Ravenna Ravenna

F
The jewel of Italy

C
Nestled in Romagna

F
It's where I want to be

Bb m
that's where I met my true love

F Dm
Who's waiting there for me


Gm
In a piazza in Ravenna

C F
In sunny Italy.


(Instrumental)




Bb
Venice was very nice

F
And I've been to San Remo twice

Bb
And the people in Capri were sweet and kind

Bb
Como should not be missed

F
And Parma's hard to resist

F
But, today there's just one place that's on my

Bb
mind.


F
Oh Ravenna Ravenna

Bb
The jewel of Italy

F
Nestled in Romagna

Bb
It's where I want to be

Eb m
That's where I met my true love

F-C, C-F, F-C-F

F
Well, I Hopped a flight that was far for me
To a place called Italy
Heard they got a sauce
That’s really green
whoever heard of such a thing?

Well, I touched down near
A place called Rome
Banged on the door
Of someone’s home
And asked if they had the sauce that’s green
They said to
(Basso voce: Hop a train, it's a northern thing)


F C
Oh, Pesto, pesto, bright and green

F
You’re the sauce that fills my dreams


Now, day and night and in between

C F
I’m putting pesto on everything.

F C
I’m putting pesto on spaghetti

F
And on potatoes - -- when they’re ready

Roasts and fruit and my pizza pie

C F
If I ever run out I’m gonna die.

C…. F-C-F
F-C-F









F
Well, I sent my baby
for basilico
Some pine nuts and some olio
And a nice, big piece of parmesan
We’ll be making pesto before too long

Well she walked on in with all the stuff.
And she said the cost wasn’t all that rough
She even got some stuff for free
Yeah, baby, we’re talking D.O.P



F C
Oh, Pesto, pesto, bright and green

F
You’re the sauce that fills my dreams


Now, day and night and in between

C F
I’m putting pesto on everything.

F
Well, I opened a shop
To make some sauce
people call me
the pesto boss
I make the best you've ever seen
It's rich and creamy, bright and green.

There's always a line outside the door
people yelling they all want more
They'd be happy with just a drop
When's this madness gonna stop?

Oh, Pesto, pesto, bright and green

You’re the sauce that fills my dreams


Now, day and night and in between
