Verse 1:
E             B                    Aadd9
 Rebekah rode up on the afternoon train, it was sunny
E                         B                          Aadd9
 Her saltbox house on the coast took her mind off St. Louis
E             B                         Aadd9
 Bill was the heir to the Standard Oil name and money
E                          B                        Aadd9
 And the town said, "How did a middle-class divorcée do it?"
E             B                          Aadd9
 The wedding was charming, if a little gauche
                                 E
 There's only so far new money goes
                   B                           Aadd9
 They picked out a home and called it "Holiday House"
E                  B                          Aadd9
 Their parties were tasteful, if a little loud
                                       E
 The doctor had told him to settle down
                   B                         Aadd9
 It must have been her fault his heart gave out
-nc-
 And they said
 
Chorus:
E               B                   Aadd9
 There goes the last great American dynasty
E              B                                 Aadd9
 Who knows, if she never showed up, what could've been
E               B                           Aadd9
 There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen
          E              B                  Aadd9
She had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Verse 2:
E             B                         Aadd9
 Rebekah gave up on the Rhode Island set forever
E                B                            Aadd9
 Flew in all her xxxxx Pack friends from the city
            E                     B  
 Filled the pool with champagne and swam with the big names
     Dbm7                            A
 And blew through the money on the boys and the ballet
E              B                    A
 And losing on card game bets with Dalí
-nc-
 And they said
 
Chorus:
E               B                   Aadd9
 There goes the last great American dynasty
E              B                                       Aadd9
 Who knows, if she never showed up, what could've been
E               B                                  Aadd9
 There goes the most shameless woman this town has ever seen
          E              B                   Aadd9
She had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Bridge:
Gbm                Dbm7
 They say she was seen on occasion
E                          B
 Pacing the rocks, staring out at the midnight sea
Gbm                      Dbm7
 And in a feud with her neighbor
E                      B
 She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green
Gbm     Dbm7
 Fifty years is a long time
E                  B
 Holiday House sat quietly on that beach
Gbm       Dbm7                  E
 Free of women with madness, their men and bad habits
B
 And then it was bought by me
 
Interlude: E Aadd9 E
 
Chorus:
E              B                                       Aadd9
 Who knows, if I never showed up, what could've been
E               B                                   Aadd9
 There goes the loudest woman this town has ever seen
          E             B                Aadd9
I had a marvelous time ruining everything
 
Outro:
         E          B     Aadd9
 I had a marvelous time ruining everything
E            B      Aadd9
 a marvelous time ruining everything
E            B      Aadd9
 a marvelous time
         E       B       Aadd9
 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
