Intro: (finger style)

F(X2), G7(X2), C(X2), C/Bb(X2), Fadd9/A(X2), G7sus4(X2), G7(X1 strum)

Am                                                Fmaj7/A
Back in the day you had been part of the smart set
G7                                          C9                       C
You holidayed with kings, dined out with starlets
F                                               Dm6
Am/F                                      E7
In perfume by Chanel and clothes by Givenchy
Am                                         Fmaj7
You sipped camparis with David and Peter
G7                          Csus2          C
At Noel's parties by Lake Geneva
Fmaj7                                      Dm6
Scaling the dizzy heights of high society
Am                                                    E7
Armed only with a cheque-book and a family tree

F                                                       G    
You chased the sun around the Cote d'Azur
C                                                 C/Bb
Until the light of youth became obscured
F                                                    G7
And left you on your own and in the shade
Bb6                             Dm
An English lady of a certain age
F                                                    G
And if a nice young man would buy you a drink
C                                                 C/Bb
You'd say with a conspire-a-tor-i-al wink
F                                                     Fm
"You wouldn't think that I was seventy"
F/G                   G              Am
And he'd say, "no, you couldn't be!"

Am                                                Fmaj7/A
You had to marry someone very, very rich
G7                                          C9                       C
So that you might be kept in the style to which
F                                               Dm6
You had all of your life been accustomed to
Am/F                                      E7
But that the socialists had taxed away from you
Am                                         Fmaj7
You gave him children, a girl and a boy
G7                          Csus2          C
To keep your sanity a nanny was employed
Fmaj7                                      Dm6
And when the time came they were sent away
Am                                                    E7
Well that was simply what you did in those days

Chorus; Sixty three

Am                                                Fmaj7/A
Your son's in stocks and bonds and lives back in Surrey
G7                                          C9                       C
Flies down once in a while and leaves in a hurry
F                                               Dm6
Your daughter never finished her finishing school
Am/F                                      E7
Married a strange young man of whom you don't approve
Am                                         Fmaj7
Your husband's hollow heart gave out one Christmas Day
G7                          Csus2          C
He left the villa to his mistress in Marseilles
Fmaj7                                      Dm6
And so you come here to escape your little flat
Am                                                    E7
Hoping someone will fill your glass and let you chat about how

Chorus; fifty three

F  G  C  C/Bb  F  G7  Bb6  Dm  F  G  C  C/Bb  F  Fm  F/G  G  Am 

(finger style)

C  C/Bb  F/A  Fm  G - Finish on one strum of Am
