[STARTING PART] E, B, E

(E)Goodbye Norma Jeane
(E7)Though I never(A) knew you at all
(A)You had the grace to (E/G#)hold yourself
While those around you(A) crawled
They crawled out of the (E)woodwork
And they whispered (A)into your brain
They set you on the (E/G#)treadmill
And they made you change your (A)name

And it (B)seems to me you lived your life
Like a (E)candle in the (A)wind
Never (E)knowing who to cling to
When the(B) rain set in
And I would(A) have liked to have known you
But I was(Dbm) just a kid
Your candle burned out(B) long (Bsus4)before (B)
Your (A)legend ever (E)did

[MUSIC PART] E, B, A, E, B

(E)Loneliness was tough
The (E7)toughest(A) role you ever played
Hollywood created a (E/G#)superstar
And pain was the price you(A) paid
Even when you (E)died
Oh the (A)press still hounded you
All the (E/G#)papers had to say
Was that Marilyn was found in the(A) nude

And it (B)seems to me you lived your life
Like a (E)candle in the (A)wind
Never (E)knowing who to cling to
When the(B) rain set in
And I would(A) have liked to have known you
But I was(Dbm) just a kid
Your candle burned out(B) long (Bsus4)before (B)
Your (A)legend ever (E)did

[MUSIC PART] E, B, A, E, B

(E)Goodbye Norma Jeane
(E7)Though I (A)never knew you at all
(A)You had the grace to (E/G#)hold yourself
While those around you (A)crawled
(E)Goodbye Norma Jeane
From the (E7)young man in the 22nd row
(A)Who sees you as something more than (E/G#)sexual
More than just our Marilyn (A)Monroe

And it (B)seems to me you lived your life
Like a (E)candle in the (A)wind
Never (E)knowing who to cling to
When the(B) rain set in
And I would(A) have liked to have known you
But I was(Dbm) just a kid
Your candle burned out(B) long (Bsus4)before (B)
Your (A)legend ever (E)did
