    Goodbye Norma Jean. - 
          Dsus4                                                               
Though I         never 
G/                               Am7/G         G      D/F#/                                 
   knew you at all. You had the         grace     to         hold yourself
       Dsus4/F#             D/F#             G/           Am7/G
