Jesse Winchester
[Verse 1]
G                              D
Last night Ellen bid and made a three no-trump
                                    G
And took a hundred dollars from her friends
                                   D
She got a little nest egg when her daddy died
                                  G
And now they're living on the dividends
C                            G
Ellen is the chairman of the Children's Fund
D                                  G
She's the biggest donor, don't you know
    C                                G
And I recall the day the drinks were on the house
     D                             G
When Ellen finally beat the tennis pro
 
[Chorus]
           C                       G
But it's a shame about him, It's a shame about him
          C                      D
When he's trying so hard, And he still just can't win
       G                C
It's a shame about him, Unh unh unh
       G               D
It's a shame about him
 
[Verse 2]
G                           D
It was back in Eisenhower's second term
                               G
Before they put old Elvis in a tank
                                    D
That Ellen married Bill and Sarah's oldest boy
                                      G
The wedding was good news down at the bank
C                                G
Bill Jr. wasn't half the man his father was
D                                  G
And he just let the business go to hell
       C                         G
And if Ellen hadn't waded in and taken charge
     D                           G
The family woulda prob'ly had to sell
 
[Chorus]
           C                       G
But it's a shame about him, It's a shame about him
          C                      D
When he's trying so hard, And he still just can't win
       G                C
It's a shame about him, Unh unh unh
       D               D
It's a shame about him
 
[Verse 3]
G                               D
Well I just saw Bill Jr. in the bank today
                                G
And he's put on an awful lot of weight
                                   D
He was off to see his lawyer so he couldn't talk
                            G
Already he was half an hour late
   C                              G
But Marjorie the teller says the rumor is
D                                G
Ellen told Bill Jr. that they're through
C                                      G
Now watch and see, without that man to hold her down
         D                           G
There is just no telling what she'll do
 
[Chorus]
           C                       G
But it's a shame about him, It's a shame about him
          C                      D
When he's trying so hard, And he still just can't win
       G                C
It's a shame about him, Unh unh unh
       D               D
It's a shame about him
