[Intro]
Dsus4  G  C9  D       Dsus4  G  C9  D

Dsus4           G                          C9                         D
Sweet Lor raine the        fiery head         brown eyed schemer

who         came from a    long line of      drinkers and dreamers

who         knew that       sunshine don?t   hold up to dark

whose      businesses      fail who            sleep in the park

Lor          raine who       spoke of           paintings in Paris

and          outlandish      things to her     family just to scare us

whose      heart went      pokin? where     it shouldn?t ought

         C9                        G              D
whose mother could only, spit at the thought

      C9    Dsus4      G        C9  D      Dsus4  G  C9  D
Lorraine, sweet Lorraine


Dsus4           G                          C9                           D
Her          father would    tear out like a   page of the Bible

then he?d  burn down the  house to       announce his arrival

her           mother was     working and     never was home

Lor          raine carved    out a little        life of her own



Dsus4  G                                    C9                 D
Lor      raine started working, Lorraine went to   school

her       mother threw stones         at her on the   day that she moved

now     isn?t that a                       very strange    thing to do

    C9                                   G         D
for someone who never really wanted you

     C9     Dsus4     G               C9  D
Lorraine, sweet Lorraine


       Am                                    C
Her daddy called her a slut and a whore
          G                    D                   Am
on the night before her wedding day
                                C
the very next morning, at the church
      D                  C9
her daddy gave, Lorraine away, Lorraine away
              Dsus4      G
Lorraine, sweet Lorraine


Dsus4           G                          C9                                    D
In the       battle of         time, in the             battle of will

it?s          only your        hope and your         heart that gets killed

and it?s     harder and     harder Lorraine, to      believe in magic
                                                                             C9

                 C9                                             G         D
when        what came      before you was        so very tragic
  C9         Dsus4    G
Lorraine, sweet Lorraine

Dsus4      G         C9  D       Dsus4  G  C9  D
Sweet Lorraine
