How To Play

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