Taylor Swift - the last great american dynasty Chords

[verse 1]
G             Am
 Rebekah rode up on the
          C
afternoon train, it was sunny
G                         Am
 Her saltbox house on the coast
                      C
took her mind off St. Louis
G             Am
 Bill was the heir
                    Em        C
to the Standard Oil name and money
         G
And the town said,
           Am                    C
"How did a middle-class divorcée do it?"
Em              Am
 The wedding was charming,
                C
if a little gauche
                                 Em
There's only so far new money goes
                   Am
They picked out a home
                       C
and called it "Holiday House"
Em                 Am
 Their parties were tasteful,
                Em
if a little loud
                C                      Em
The doctor had told him to settle down
                   Am
It must have been her fault
                  C/E
his heart gave out

And they said

[chorus]
D               G/B                 C       G
 There goes the last great American dynasty
D              G/B
 Who knows, if she never showed up,
              C   G
what could've been
D               G/B
 There goes the maddest woman
              C
this town has ever seen
          G
She had a marvelous time
Am                C
ruining everything

[verse 2]
G             Am
 Rebekah gave up on
                   C
the Rhode Island set forever
G                Am
 Flew in all her Bitch Pack
                 C
friends from the city
            G/B
Filled the pool with champagne and
Am
swam with the big names
     Em
And blew through
                 C
the money on the boys and the ballet
G              Am                  C
 And losing on card game bets with Dalí

And they said

[chorus]
D               G                 C       G
 There goes the last great American dynasty
D              G
 Who knows, if she never showed up,
                 C   G
what could've been
D               G
 There goes the most shameless woman
     C
this town has ever seen
          D
She had a marvelous time
G                 C
ruining everything

[bridge]
Am                Em
 They say she was seen on occasion
G
 Pacing the rocks,
        D
staring out at the midnight sea
Am                      Em
 And in a feud with her neighbor
G
 She stole his dog
    D
and dyed it key lime green
Am     Em
 Fifty years is a long time
G                  D
 Holiday House sat quietly on that beach
Am       Em
 Free of women with madness,
G
their men and bad habits
D
 And then it was bought by me

[instrumental]
D  G  C  G

[chorus]
D              G
 Who knows, if I never showed up,
                   C   G/B
what could've been
D               G
 There goes the loudest woman
            C          G/B
this town has ever seen
          D
I had a marvelous time
  G                 C    G/B
ruining everything

[outro]
         D          G  C G/B
I had a marvelous time ruining everything
D            G   C  G/B
a marvelous time ruining everything
D            G    C G/B
a marvelous time
         D        G     C
I had a marvelous time
