Lady Adelaide by Benjamin Gibbard

Chorded by Alaina Musich

This song technically holds a G over the verse.  In practice, it doesn't sound right unless you're 
fingerpicking.  If you'd like your chord to sound more rounded, use a G6 or C back and forth as 
noted.

When the last word of the verse is sung ("unheard" in Verse I), it has 2 vocal notes.  
The first half of the word is played with a D, then C.  Tried to note within the music.


NOTE THAT THE G6 (I6 chord) IS CORRECT, BUT C (IV chord) MAY BE SUBSTITUTED IF PREFERRED.

G6      G     G6         G
Lady Adelaide shows no emotion

G6            G           G6     G
Colder than a wave in the Arctic Ocean

G6                 G     G5        G
She waited all her years for those 3 words

G6                     G
That never reached her ears

G6        G       D     C
They just went unhea----rd


G6            G      G6      G
Porcelain and frail, slender shoulders

G6                G          G6        G
A breeze of gusty gale could knock her over

G6                  G           G6       G
She knew a handsome man who she gave her body

G6                      G
But he did not take her hand

G6                  G     D      C
And her heart broke softly---------

            Am      
Now she's a bird with broken wing

              C
She likes the ideas of things

               G
More than what they are bound to bring

     D
Lady Adelaide

             Am
And with her beauty in slow fade

          C
She is so fearful the will say

              G
That she is a bed that's been unmade

     D
Lady Adelaide
