Philomena  The Decemberists

You can use D7 instead of D during the verse, it'll sound nice. :)
G Em Am D x5
[Em](Ve[D]rse 1:)
[G]Oh, Philom[Em]ena, you [Am]in a tawdr[D]y-gown
[G]Lean to your [Em]window, [Am]let slip a [D]ribbon down
A[G] cure to your [Em]boredom, if o[Am]nly you'll [D]let me go
[Em]Down, down [D]down
[G]Long sunny [Em]days can l[Am]ead to [D]lazy vices
[G]Boys all at [Em]idle, [Am]left to their [D]own devices
[G]Open up your [Em]linen [Am]lap and [D]let me go
[Em]Down, down [D]down
(Chorus:)
[B]All I ever wanted in the [Em]world was just to [Am]live to see a naked [D]girl
[B]But I found I've quickly [Em]bored, I wanted [C]more, I wante[D]d more
(Verse 2:)
So [G]I'll be your [Em]candle and I[Am]'ll be your [D]statuette
[G]I'll be your [Em]lash and [Am]loop of [D]leatherette,[G] and oh
Philo[Em]mena, [Am]if only you'l[D]l let me go
[Em]Down, down [D]down

(Verse 2:)
S[G]o I'll be you[Em]r candle and[Am] I'll be you[D]r statuette
[G]I'll be your [Em]lash and [Am]loop of [D]leatherette,[G] and oh
Philo[Em]mena, [Am]if only you'l[D]l let me go
[Em]Down, down [D]down
Go [Em]down, down [D]down
Go [Em]down[D]
Go [G]down
