The Rise And Fall Of The Roman Empire
Recorded by Cal Smith
Written by Bobby Fischer and Don Wayne

C F
Russell Roman took his brand new bride
G7 C
Across the threshold to their brand new life
F
With very little money in his jeans
G7 C
And a hundred million dollars worth of dreams

F
He took a job a the Congress Union Bank
G7 C
Worked hard to get ahead but drew a blank
F
One day they paid him off and sent him home
G7 C
Then he swore he'd build an empire of his own

F G7 C
Through the years he worked and dreamed of a Roman empire
F G7 C
And he left his pretty young wife all alone
F G7 C
She didn't share his dreams of a Roman empire
F G7 C
All she dreamed of was a family and a home

F
Hard work and patience brought him wealth and fame
G7 C
And he thought he was a winner in life's game
F
Their empire stretched from Maine to Mexico
G7 C
She had everything but what she needed most

F
When at last her loneliness had run it's coarse
G7 C
The judge granted Mrs. Roman her divorce
F
Now Russell Roman's empire seemed so small
G7 C
And as lifeless as the Rembrandts on the wall

F G7 C
The rise and the fall of the Roman empire
F G7 C
Is a lesson for the likes of you and me
F G7 C
The rise and the fall of the Roman empire
F G7 C
Is just another page in history

F
Russell Roman took the same sweet bride
G7 C
Across the threshold for the second time
F
With very little money in his jeans
G7 C
And not one single dollar in his dreams

F G7 C
That's the fall and the rise of the Roman empire
F G7 C
He gave their fortune to an orphans home
F G7 C
The fall and the rise of the Roman empire
F G7 C
Now his empire is his family and his home
