Goodbye Norma Jean 
               A
Though I never knew you at all 
                     E
You had the grace to hold yourself 
                       A
While those around you crawled 
                        E
They crawled out of the woodwork 
         A
And they whispered into your brain 
                    E
They set you on the treadmill 
                              A
And they made you change your name 


       B               B7
And it seems to me you lived your life 
       E             A
Like a candle in the wind 
      E           
Never knowing who to cling to 
         B
When the rain set in 
      A                      
And I would have liked to have known you 
          Dbm
But I was just a kid 
                       B
Your candle burned out long before 
     A           E
Your legend ever did 


E
Loneliness was tough 
             A
The toughest role you ever played 
                    E
Hollywood created a superstar 
                           A
And pain was the price you paid 
              E
Even when you died 
       A
Oh the press still hounded you 
            
All the papers had to say 
         E                        A
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude 
       B               B7
And it seems to me you lived your life 
       E             A
Like a candle in the wind 
      E           
Never knowing who to cling to 
         B
When the rain set in 
      A                      
And I would have liked to have known you

Goodbye Norma Jean
                   A
From the young man in the 22nd row
                                    E
Who sees you as something more than xxxual
                              A
More than just our Marilyn Monroe
