Verse 1:
G             D                    Cadd9
 Rebekah rode up on the afternoon train, it was sunny
G                         D                          Cadd9
 Her saltbox house on the coast took her mind off St. Louis
G             D                         Cadd9
 Bill was the heir to the Standard Oil name and money
G                          D                        Cadd9
 And the town said, "How did a middle-class divorcée do it?"
G             D                          Cadd9
 The wedding was charming, if a little gauche
                                 G
 There's only so far new money goes
                   D                           Cadd9
 They picked out a home and called it "Holiday House"
G                  D                          Cadd9
 Their parties were tasteful, if a little loud
                                       G
 The doctor had told him to settle down
                   D                         Cadd9
 It must have been her fault his heart gave out
-nc-
 And they said
 
Chorus:
G               D                   Cadd9
 There goes the last great American dynasty
G              D                                 Cadd9
 Who knows, if she never showed up, what could've been
G               D                           Cadd9
 There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen
          G              D                  Cadd9
She had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Verse 2:
G             D                         Cadd9
 Rebekah gave up on the Rhode Island set forever
G                D                            Cadd9
 Flew in all her xxxxx Pack friends from the city
            G                     D  
 Filled the pool with champagne and swam with the big names
     Em7                            C
 And blew through the money on the boys and the ballet
G              D                    C
 And losing on card game bets with Dalí
-nc-
 And they said
 
Chorus:
G               D                   Cadd9
 There goes the last great American dynasty
G              D                                       Cadd9
 Who knows, if she never showed up, what could've been
G               D                                  Cadd9
 There goes the most shameless woman this town has ever seen
          G              D                   Cadd9
She had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Bridge:
Am                Em7
 They say she was seen on occasion
G                          D
 Pacing the rocks, staring out at the midnight sea
Am                      Em7
 And in a feud with her neighbor
G                      D
 She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green
Am     Em7
 Fifty years is a long time
G                  D
 Holiday House sat quietly on that beach
Am       Em7                  G
 Free of women with madness, their men and bad habits
D
 And then it was bought by me
 
Interlude: G Cadd9 G
 
Chorus:
G              D                                       Cadd9
 Who knows, if I never showed up, what could've been
G               D                                   Cadd9
 There goes the loudest woman this town has ever seen
          G             D                Cadd9
I had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Outro:
         G          D     Cadd9
 I had a marvelous time ruining everything
G            D      Cadd9
 a marvelous time ruining everything
G            D      Cadd9
 a marvelous time
         G       D       Cadd9
 I had a marvelous time

Cadd9 doesn’t work here. I use GDEmC and it sounds right.

Livy

The Cadd9 posted is a modified version and it doesn’t fit. If you play Cadd9 on the 5th fret of the C string it fits the song.

Khanhha

i think C sounds better than
Cadd9:)

Swiftie

I eon’t think Cadd9 works well for this song. I feel like it should be G D G C

Swiftie

Don’t

Swiftie

No, GDGEm
