    You’re So Vain

    Carly Simon

     

    Intro:  / Am - - - / x8

     

             Am (2)

    You walked into the party

                            F                    Am
    Like you were walking onto a yacht

                       Am (2)
    Your hat strategically dipped below one eye

                F                   Am
    Your scarf it was apricot

                  F (½)     G (½)    C (½) (Am) (½)
    You had one eye in the mirror as

             F                       C

    you watched yourself gavotte

                      G (½)                       F (2)
    And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner, they'd be your partner, and

     

    Chorus:

    C (2)
       You're so vain

             Dm7                                 C
    You probably think this song is about you

                    Am
    You're so vain (you're so vain)

          F                                     G (2)
    I'll bet you think this song is about you--Don't you? Don't you?

     

            Am (2)  
    You had me several years ago

             F                        Am
    When I was still quite naive

                  Am (2)  
    Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair

              F                             Am
    And that you would never leave

                   F (½)   G (½)      C (½)         (Am) (½)
    But you gave away the things you loved

             F                       C
    And one of them was me

                        G (½)                       F (2)
    I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee, clouds in my coffee, and

    Chorus

    Instrumental Verse (sing last line):

                        G
    (½)                       F (2)
    I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee, clouds in my coffee, and


    Chorus

              Am
    (2)  

    Well, I hear you went up to Saratoga

             F                           Am
    And your horse naturally won

                    Am (2)  
    Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia

                      F                          Am
    To see the total eclipse of the sun

                           F (½)         G (½)     C (½)       (Am) (½)
    Well, you're where you should be all the time

             F                                 C
    And when you're not, you're with
                                 G
    (½)         F (2)

    Some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend, wife of a close friend, and

    Chorus

    / C - - - / - - - - / Dm7 - - - / C - - - /
     

    C (2)
       You're so vain

             Dm7                                 C
    You probably think this song is about you
    C
    (2)
       You're so vain

             Dm7                                 C
    You probably think this song is about you

     

    / C - - - / - - - - / Dm7 - - - / G (hold) /
