E                                 E7
The morning sun touched gently on
     A             E
the eyes of Lucy Jordan

in a white suburban bedroom
       B                    B7
in a white suburban town.
        E                          E7
As she lay there 'neath the covers
         A               E
dreaming of a thousand lovers
           B                      B7
till the world turned to orange
                             E     E7
and the room went spinning round.

        A
At the age of thirty-seven
       E
she realized she'd never ride

through Paris in a sports car
                           B
with the worm wind in her hair.

        E                          E7
So she let the phone keep ringing
        A                  E
as she sat there softly singing
       B
the nursery rhymes she'd memorize
         A            E
in her daddy's easy chair.

                            E7
Her husband is off to work
         A                E
and the kids are off to school

and there were oh so many ways
     B                   B7
for her to spend a day.

            E                        E7
She could clean the house for hours
   A                 E
or re-arrange the flowers
    B
or make it through the shady stream
                   E
screaming all the way.

        A
At the age of thirty-seven
       E
she realized she'd never ride

through Paris in a sports car
                           B
with the worm wind in her hair.

        E                          E7
So she let the phone keep ringing
        A                  E
as she sat there softly singing
       B
the nursery rhymes she'd memorize
         A            E
in her daddy's easy chair.

                                  E7
The evening sun touched gently on
     A             E
the eyes of Lucy Jordan

on the roof top where she climbed
                                B     B7
when all the laughter grew too loud.

          E                           E7
And she bowed and cursed to the man (?)
       A                    E
who reached out ... off to her his hands (?)
     B
and led her down to a long white car (?)
                        E    E7
that waited, past the crowd.

        A
At the age of thirty-seven
     E
she knew that she'd found heaven

as she rode along through Paris
                           B
with the worm wind in her hair.

Just a quick note. This song was not written by Marianne Faithfull, it was written by Shel Silverstein. Got young children? Get them and read to them his "Where The Sidewalk Ends" collection of poems.
