[Verse 1]
   D                           D/F#    G
Goodbye, Norma Jeane, though I never   ...knew you at all,
             G4   G  D/F#
You had the grace to hold yourself,
       D4   D   Dsus2  D           G   C/G
While those a - round you crawled----,
        G                  D       D4
They crawled out of the woodwork,
 D         D/F#      G
And they whispered   ...into your brain
                    D/F#               D4   D   Dsus2   D        G  
They set you on a treadmill, and they made you change your name----!


[Chorus]
          A                          A4   A7      D4   D       G
And, it seems to me, you lived your life like a candle in the wind,
         D                 D4  D            A            A7
Never knowing who to cling to  ...when the rain set in,
         G                                    G/A  Bm
And I would've liked to have known you, but I was just a kid,
                       A                     G
Your candle burnt out long before ...your legend ever did!

   G *     D/F# *  Em    D                    D4  D      A
|  /    /    /     /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /__/  / |  /  /  /  /  |

[Verse 2]
    D                              D/F#   G
Loneliness was tough, the toughest role    ...you ever played,
            G4    G    D/F#         D4   D      Dsus2  D   G   C/G
Hollywood created a superstar, and pain was the price you paid,
      G        D    D4 D           G
Even when you died,      oh, the press still hounded you,
               D/F#
All the papers had to say...
             D4     D   Dsus2       D   G
...Was that Mari - lyn     ...was found in the nude!


[Chorus]
          A                          A4   A7      D4   D       G
And, it seems to me, you lived your life like a candle in the wind,
         D                 D4  D             A            A4 A
Never knowing who to cling to  ...when the rain set in,
         G                                    G/A  Bm
And I would've liked to have known you, but I was just a kid,
                       A                     G
Your candle burnt out long before ...your legend ever did!

[Verse 3]
   D            D4    D            D/F#   G
Goodbye, Norma Jeane,     though I never   ...knew you at all,
             G4   G  D/F#
You had the grace to hold yourself,
       D4   D   Dsus2  D            G    C/G G
While those a - round you crawled-----,
  D                  D4            D      D/F#     G
Goodbye, Norma Jeane,   from the young man in the 22nd row,
                 G4      G   D/F#
Who sees you as some - thing more than sexual,
           D4   D  Dsus2  D      G
More than just our    ...Mari - lyn Monroe!


[Chorus]
          A                          A4   A7      D4   D       G   C/G G
