    Oh Marie

    (Sheryl Crow/Jeff Trott/Bill Bottrell)

     

    CAPO 1

     

    Strum:

    D   D U   U X U

    1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

     

     

    INTRO:  G x4

     

    G                                F#7                      C  Em

    Here she comes, she's all dressed up in daisies

    G                             F#7                     C  Em

    Half the time you'd swear that she is crazy

    Am

    Flowered drinks and a low-cut dress

    B

    That's the way I know her best

           Am

    She says she's lonely, how could she be?

    B

    Every night she's got company

     

    Chorus:

    C     Em

    Oh, Marie

    D        C                Bm    Am

    I sure hope you're happy

    C     Em

    Oh, Marie

                       D  C     Bm   Am

    What about me,     Marie

     

    G                                F#7                 C  Em

    She likes the way she looks in her camaro

                   G                 F#7                        C  Em

    She likes lingerie but he prefers the sombrero

    Am

    She's so famous on the block

          B

    She stumbles home around four o'clock

         Am

    She claims the guys are hard to please

               B

    She wears teen perfume behind her knees

     

     

    Chorus

     

     

    Solo: 

    Am   Em    C   G   Am   Em   C   D   C   Bm   Am

     

    G                       F#7                    C  Em

    All day long she fills me up with dogma

                   G                    F#7                     C  Em

    She's all magazines and Benzedrine and vodka

              Am

    There was one man she truly loved

                  B

    He took everything but her bear-skin rug

        Am

    And now and then it's clear to me

            B

    That need is love and love is need

     

    Chorus

     

    C      Em

    Oh, Marie

    D                    C       Bm    Am

    What are you looking for

    C       Em

    Oh, Marie

    D                C    Bm   Am

    Always an open door

    D                    C        Bm   Am   G

    What are you looking for
