Marie Provost  Nick Lowe

From the album Jesus of Cool
Tuning: EADGBE
Crazy lyric. Great pop song.
[G] Marie Provost did not [C]look her [D]best
[G]The day the cops bust into her [C]loneli-[D]ness
[G]In the cheap hotel up on [Em]Hollywood West
[C] July Twenty [D]Nine
[G]She'd been lying there for [C]two or three [D]weeks
[G]The neighbours said they never [C]heard a [D]squeak
[G]While hungry eyes that [Em]could not speak
[C] Said even little doggies have [D]got to eat
She was a [G]winner [D/F#] that became a doggie's [C]dinner[/B] [Am]
She never meant that much to [G]me
Who oh oh [C]oh [D]oh poor Ma-[G]rie[C] [G] [D]
[G]Marie Provost was a [C]movie [D]queen
[G]Mysterious angel of the [C]silent [D]screen
[G]And run like the wind the nation's [Em]young men steamed
[C] When Marie crossed the [D]silent screen
[G]Woah she came out [C]west from New [D]York
[G]But when the talkies came Mar-[C]ie just couldn't [D]cope
[G]The public said[/Gb] Mar-[Em]ie take a walk
[C] All the way back to [D]New York
She was a [G]winner [D/F#] that became a doggie's [C]dinner[/B] [Am]
She never meant that much to [G]me
But now I [C]see[D] poor Mar-[G]ie[C] [G] [D]

[G]Those quaalude bombs didn't [C]help her [D]sleep
[G]As her nights grew long and her [C]days grew [D]bleak
[G]It's all downhill once [/Gb]you've [Em]passed your peak
[C] Marie got ready for that [D]last big sleep
[G]The cops came in and they [C]looked a-[D]round
[G]Throwing up everywhere over [C]what they?d [D]found
[G]The handiwork of[/Gb] Marie's little dachs-[Em]hund
[C] That hungry little [D]dachshund!
She was a [G]winner[D/F#] that became a doggie's [C]dinner[/B] [Am]
