Verse 1:
Ab             Eb                    Dbadd9
 Rebekah rode up on the afternoon train, it was sunny
Ab                         Eb                          Dbadd9
 Her saltbox house on the coast took her mind off St. Louis
Ab             Eb                         Dbadd9
 Bill was the heir to the Standard Oil name and money
Ab                          Eb                        Dbadd9
 And the town said, "How did a middle-class divorcée do it?"
Ab             Eb                          Dbadd9
 The wedding was charming, if a little gauche
                                 Ab
 There's only so far new money goes
                   Eb                           Dbadd9
 They picked out a home and called it "Holiday House"
Ab                  Eb                          Dbadd9
 Their parties were tasteful, if a little loud
                                       Ab
 The doctor had told him to settle down
                   Eb                         Dbadd9
 It must have been her fault his heart gave out
-nc-
 And they said
 
Chorus:
Ab               Eb                   Dbadd9
 There goes the last great American dynasty
Ab              Eb                                 Dbadd9
 Who knows, if she never showed up, what could've been
Ab               Eb                           Dbadd9
 There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen
          Ab              Eb                  Dbadd9
She had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Verse 2:
Ab             Eb                         Dbadd9
 Rebekah gave up on the Rhode Island set forever
Ab                Eb                            Dbadd9
 Flew in all her xxxxx Pack friends from the city
            Ab                     Eb  
 Filled the pool with champagne and swam with the big names
     Fm7                            Db
 And blew through the money on the boys and the ballet
Ab              Eb                    Db
 And losing on card game bets with Dalí
-nc-
 And they said
 
Chorus:
Ab               Eb                   Dbadd9
 There goes the last great American dynasty
Ab              Eb                                       Dbadd9
 Who knows, if she never showed up, what could've been
Ab               Eb                                  Dbadd9
 There goes the most shameless woman this town has ever seen
          Ab              Eb                   Dbadd9
She had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Bridge:
Bbm                Fm7
 They say she was seen on occasion
Ab                          Eb
 Pacing the rocks, staring out at the midnight sea
Bbm                      Fm7
 And in a feud with her neighbor
Ab                      Eb
 She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green
Bbm     Fm7
 Fifty years is a long time
Ab                  Eb
 Holiday House sat quietly on that beach
Bbm       Fm7                  Ab
 Free of women with madness, their men and bad habits
Eb
 And then it was bought by me
 
Interlude: Ab Dbadd9 Ab
 
Chorus:
Ab              Eb                                       Dbadd9
 Who knows, if I never showed up, what could've been
Ab               Eb                                   Dbadd9
 There goes the loudest woman this town has ever seen
          Ab             Eb                Dbadd9
I had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Outro:
         Ab          Eb     Dbadd9
 I had a marvelous time ruining everything
Ab            Eb      Dbadd9
 a marvelous time ruining everything
Ab            Eb      Dbadd9
 a marvelous time
         Ab       Eb       Dbadd9
 I had a marvelous time

Hannah :)

I recommend playing +5 , it sounds way better. Also just play normal G, not Gadd9

nora

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

I panicked but it wasnt at a disco

AAAA Y E S

DragMeDown28

lol was gonnna say the same thing as Hannah :!!

Evvie

I think it sounds great. You guys might just be playing Em7 instead of Cadd9.

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
