Marie Provost

	  		G                      C        D
 Marie Provost did not look her best
G                              C      D
The day the cops bust into her loneli-ness
G                        Em
In the cheap hotel up on Hollywood West
C            D
 July Twenty Nine

G                          C            D
She'd been lying there for two or three weeks
G                              C       D
The neighbours said they never heard a squeak
G                      Em
While hungry eyes that could not speak
C                              D
 Said even little doggies have got to eat

          G      D/F#                        C     B Am
She was a winner      that became a doggie's dinner
                             G
She never meant that much to me
          C  D          G  C  G  D
Who oh oh oh oh poor Ma-rie

G                   C     D
Marie Provost was a movie queen
G                       C      D
Mysterious angel of the silent screen
G                                  Em
And run like the wind the nation's young men steamed
C                       D
 When Marie crossed the silent screen

G                 C             D
Woah she came out west from New York
G                             C                D
But when the talkies came Mar-ie just couldn't cope
G              Gb  Em
The public said Mar-ie take a walk
C                    D
 All the way back to New York

          G      D/F#                        C     B Am
She was a winner      that became a doggie's dinner
                             G
She never meant that much to me
          C  D          G  C  G  D
But now I see  poor Mar-ie

  G         Em     C         D      G         Em     C         D

G                           C        D
Those quaalude bombs didn't help her sleep
G                               C         D
As her nights grew long and her days grew bleak
G                      Gb    Em
It's all downhill once you've passed your peak
C                         D
 Marie got ready for that last big sleep

G                         C        D
The cops came in and they looked a-round
G                           C           D
Throwing up everywhere over what they?d found
G               Gb                   Em
The handiwork of Marie's little dachs-hund
C                   D
 That hungry little dachshund!

          G     D/F#                          C     B Am
She was a winner       that became a doggie's dinner
                             G
She never meant that much to me
          C  D          G  C  G  D
Who oh oh oh oh poor Ma-rie

        G  C  G  D
Poor Ma-rie
        G  C  G  D
Poor Ma-rie
             G  C  G  D
Poor poor Ma-rie
        G  C  G  D
Poor Ma-rie
        G  C  G  D
Poor Ma-rie
