Intro: G G


G G Am7 Am7
Rebekah rode up on
C C
The afternoon train, it was sunny
G G Am7 Am7
Her saltbox house on the coast 
C C
Ttook her mind off  St. Louis
G G Am7 Am7
Bill was the heir
G G C C
To the Standard Oil name and money
G G
And the town said
Am7 Am7 C C
"How did a middle-class divorcée do it?"
G G Am7 Am7
The wedding was charming
C C
If a little gauche
G G
There's only so far new money goes
Am7 Am7
They picked out a home
C C
And called it "Holiday House"
G G Am7 Am7
Their parties were tasteful
Em Em
If a little loud
C C
The doctor had told him to settle down
G G Am7 Am7
It must have been her
C C
Fault his heart gave out

And they said


D D G G C C G G
There goes the last great American dynasty
D D G G
Who knows, if she never showed up
C C G G
What could've been
D D G G
There goes the maddest woman
C C
This town has ever seen
G G
She had a marvelous time
Am7 Am7 C C
Ruining everything


G G Am7 Am7
Rebekah gave up on
C C
The Rhode Island set forever
G G Am7 Am7
Flew in all her Bitch Pack
C C
Friends from the city
G G Am7 Am7
Filled the pool with champagne

And swam with the big names
Em Em
And blew through the money
C C
On the boys and the ballet
G G Am7 Am7 C C
And losing on card game bets with Dalí

And they said


D D G G C C G G
There goes the last great American dynasty
D D G G
Who knows, if she never showed up
C C G G
What could've been
D D G G
There goes the most shameless woman
C C
This town has ever seen
D D G G C C G G
She had a marvelous time ruining everything


Am7 Am7 Em Em
They say she was seen on occasion
G G
Pacing the rocks, staring
D D
Out at the midnight sea
Am7 Am7 Em Em
And in a feud with her neighbor
G G D D
She stole his dog and dyed

It key lime green
Am7 Am7 Em Em
Fifty years is a long time
G G D D
Holiday House sat quietly on that beach
Am7 Am7 Em Em
Free of women with madness
G G
Their men and bad habits
D D
And then it was bought by me

( G G C C G G )


D D
Who knows, if
G G
I never showed up
C C G G
What could've been
D D G G
There goes the loudest woman
C C G G
This town has ever seen
D D G G C C G G
I had a marvelous time ruining everything
D D G G C C
I had a marvelous time
G G
Ruining everything
D D G G C C
A A marvelous time
G G
Ruining everything
D D G G C C G G
A A marvelous time
D D G G C C
I had a marvelous time
