The Byrds      Mae Jean Goes To Hollywood  written by Jackson Browne

F                                 Bb                  F
Honey when I brought you here you said that you would sing(?)
    Bb                  G7                 Bb          F
You said that you would win(?) your way to fortune and fame
    F                        Bb                F
Now I've given everything to keep you warm and clean
  Bb            G7                        Bb       F
I didn't bat an eye when you changed your name
                     Bb             C7               Bb     F
I'm getting tired of hearing people call you someone else
I'm getting tired of seeing you go to work in the morning and eating
supper by myself
         F                      Bb              F
Now this Hollywood producer has offered you the world
Bb                     G7         Bb     F
He lets you drive his  sporty new Camero
F                              Bb               F
Wonder just how many girls he's told that story to
    Bb               G7           Bb      F
How many dreams have gone away in sorrow
                     Bb                  C7          Bb  F
I'm getting tires of biting my nails and pumping gasoline
                     Bb                            C7
I'm getting tired of waiting for you to figure out why this city is

    Bb   F        Eb        Bb                     C7
Mae Jean run back home with me and I'll go back to working on your
daddy's farm
    Bb   F        Eb        Bb
Mae Jean run back home with me
     Bb            G              Bb
This wicked cities bound to do us harm
F                                        Bb           F
Now all this time I helped you with your promising career
  Bb             G7              Bb       F
I never said one word about your singing
F                                       Bb          F
I just want to let you know that you'll still be my star
       Bb             G7
If you say goodbye to Hollywood
            Bb             F
And do your singing in the shower
    Bb    F       Eb        Bb                   C7             Bb F

Mae Jean run back home with me back to where the air is clean + free
    Bb   F        Eb        Bb
May Jean run back home with me
                     G7                      Bb            F
If this city doesn't get us first it's gonna sink into the sea
