    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
While            those a -        round you      crawled 
              G              D/                                               
They crawled     out of the      woodwork. -  

And they whispered
G/                            Am7/G       G          D/F#/                                   
   into your brain. They set         you    on the         treadmill
          Dsus4/F#        D/F#                    G/        Am7/G

And it     seems to me - you      lived your life -
        D          Em*      D/F#*      G                                                 
like a    candle       in         the     wind
       D/F#                   Dsus4/F#        D/F#
