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

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

[Verse 2]
G G D D Cadd9 Cadd9
Rebekah gave up on the Rhode Island set forever
G G D D Cadd9 Cadd9
Flew in all her Bitch Pack friends from the city
G G D D
Filled the pool with champagne and swam with the big names
Em7 Em7 C C
And blew through the money on the boys and the ballet
G G D D C C
And losing on card game bets with Dalí
N.C.
And they said

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

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

[Interlude]
G G Cadd9 Cadd9 G G

[Chorus]
G G D D
Who knows, if I never showed up,
Cadd9 Cadd9
what could've been
G G D D
There goes the loudest woman
Cadd9 Cadd9
this town has ever seen
G G D D Cadd9 Cadd9
I had a marvelous time ruining everything

[Outro]
G G D D Cadd9 Cadd9
I had a marvelous time ruining everything
G G D D Cadd9 Cadd9
a marvelous time ruining everything
G G D D Cadd9 Cadd9
a marvelous time
G G D D Cadd9 Cadd9
I had a marvelous time
