[Verse 1]
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
Rebekah rode up on the afternoon train it was sunny
G chordG D chordD
Her saltbox house on the coast took her mind
Cadd9 chordCadd9
off St Louis
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
Bill was the heir to the Standard Oil name and money
G chordG D chordD
And the town said
D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
How  did  a  middle-class divorcée do it
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
The wedding was charming if a little gauche
G chordG
There's only so far new money goes
D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
They picked out a home and called it Holiday House
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
Their parties were tasteful if a little loud
G chordG
The doctor had told him to settle down
D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
It must have been her fault his heart gave out
N.C.
And they said

[Chorus]
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
There goes the last great American dynasty
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
Who knows if she never showed up what could've been
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
She had a marvelous time ruining everything

G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
Rebekah gave up on the Rhode Island set forever
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
Flew in all her Bitch Pack friends from the city
G chordG D chordD
Filled the pool with champagne and swam with the big names
Em7 chordEm7 C chordC
And blew through the money on the boys and the ballet
G chordG D chordD C chordC
And losing on card game bets with Dalí
N.C.
And they said

[Chorus]
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
There goes the last great American dynasty
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
Who knows if she never showed up what could've been

She had a marvelous time ruining everything

[Bridge]
Am chordAm Em7 chordEm7
They say she was seen on occasion
G chordG D chordD
Pacing the rocks staring out at the midnight sea
Am chordAm Em7 chordEm7
And in a feud with her neighbor
G chordG D chordD
She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green
Am chordAm Em7 chordEm7
Fifty years is a long time
G chordG D chordD
Holiday House sat quietly on that beach
Am chordAm Em7 chordEm7 G chordG
Free of women with madness their men and bad habits
D chordD
And then it was bought by me

[Interlude]

this town has ever seen
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
I had a marvelous time ruining everything

[Outro]

a marvelous time ruining everything
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
a marvelous time
G chordG D chordD Cadd9 chordCadd9
I had a marvelous time
