Natalie Merchant – Ophelia chords
hokai, so ... this is my first submission, so ... having said that, be gentle. ^_^ This is a simple, beautiful and dramatic song. Enjoy! OPHELIA By Natalie Merchant from the album, "Ophelia" Am/F/C/G (I like to capo on the first fret, and I use a basic finger-picking pattern, except during the end, which builds.)Am FOphelia was a bride of God, a novice CarmelliteC Gin sister cells the cloister bells tolled on her wedding nightAm FAnd Ophelia was a rebel girl, a blue stockinged suffragetteC Gwho remedied society between her cigarettesAm FOphelia was a sweetheart to a nation overnightC G Curvacious thighs, vivacious eyes--love was at first sightAm F C GLove was at first sightAm FOphelia was a demi-goddess in pre-war babylonC Gso statuesque, a silhouette in black satin evening gownAm FAnd Ophelia was a mistress to a Vegas gambling manC GSignora Ophelia, Maraschina, Mafia CourtesanAm FAnd Ophelia was a circus queen, the female cannonballC GProjected through five flaming hoops to wild and shocked applause,Am F C Gto wild and shocked applause Hey, hey .... heeeeey hey hey(played louder, dramatically and with feeling)Am FOphelia was a tempest cyclone, a G*d-damned hurricaneC GYour common sense, your best defense lay wasted and in vainAm FFor Ophelia knows your every woe and every pain you've ever hadC GShe'd sympathize and dry your eyes and help you to forgetAm Fand help you to forget ...C Gand help you to forget ...(quietly and slowly)Am FOphelia's mind went wondering, you'd wondered where she'd goneC GThrough secret doors, down corridors, she's wandered them all aloneAm F C GAll alone ...
