lyrics

The Ravenna Song
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

Bb Gm
Who's waiting there for me (waiting there for me)


Cm F
In a piazza in Ravenna

Bb
In sunny Italy







Cm F
In a piazza in Ravenna

Bb F Bb F Bb F Bb
In su - nny I-ta - ly.
