Verse 1:
Bb             F                    Ebadd9
 Rebekah rode up on the afternoon train, it was sunny
Bb                         F                          Ebadd9
 Her saltbox house on the coast took her mind off St. Louis
Bb             F                         Ebadd9
 Bill was the heir to the Standard Oil name and money
Bb                          F                        Ebadd9
 And the town said, "How did a middle-class divorcée do it?"
Bb             F                          Ebadd9
 The wedding was charming, if a little gauche
                                 Bb
 There's only so far new money goes
                   F                           Ebadd9
 They picked out a home and called it "Holiday House"
Bb                  F                          Ebadd9
 Their parties were tasteful, if a little loud
                                       Bb
 The doctor had told him to settle down
                   F                         Ebadd9
 It must have been her fault his heart gave out
-nc-
 And they said
 
Chorus:
Bb               F                   Ebadd9
 There goes the last great American dynasty
Bb              F                                 Ebadd9
 Who knows, if she never showed up, what could've been
Bb               F                           Ebadd9
 There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen
          Bb              F                  Ebadd9
She had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Verse 2:
Bb             F                         Ebadd9
 Rebekah gave up on the Rhode Island set forever
Bb                F                            Ebadd9
 Flew in all her xxxxx Pack friends from the city
            Bb                     F  
 Filled the pool with champagne and swam with the big names
     Gm7                            Eb
 And blew through the money on the boys and the ballet
Bb              F                    Eb
 And losing on card game bets with Dalí
-nc-
 And they said
 
Chorus:
Bb               F                   Ebadd9
 There goes the last great American dynasty
Bb              F                                       Ebadd9
 Who knows, if she never showed up, what could've been
Bb               F                                  Ebadd9
 There goes the most shameless woman this town has ever seen
          Bb              F                   Ebadd9
She had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Bridge:
Cm                Gm7
 They say she was seen on occasion
Bb                          F
 Pacing the rocks, staring out at the midnight sea
Cm                      Gm7
 And in a feud with her neighbor
Bb                      F
 She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green
Cm     Gm7
 Fifty years is a long time
Bb                  F
 Holiday House sat quietly on that beach
Cm       Gm7                  Bb
 Free of women with madness, their men and bad habits
F
 And then it was bought by me
 
Interlude: Bb Ebadd9 Bb
 
Chorus:
Bb              F                                       Ebadd9
 Who knows, if I never showed up, what could've been
Bb               F                                   Ebadd9
 There goes the loudest woman this town has ever seen
          Bb             F                Ebadd9
I had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Outro:
         Bb          F     Ebadd9
 I had a marvelous time ruining everything
Bb            F      Ebadd9
 a marvelous time ruining everything
Bb            F      Ebadd9
 a marvelous time
         Bb       F       Ebadd9
 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
