From the 1976 album "Warren Zevon"
(For the "Preludes" demo version, use a capo at the first fret.)
[D] [D/F#] [D] [D] [A] [D] [Bm7] [A] [A7]  
[D]How're you going to make your way in the world, woman
When you [G]weren't cut [A]out for [D]working?
When your [G]fingers are [D/F#]slender and [A]frail?
[G]How're you going to get [D/F#]around
In this [G]sle[D/F#]azy [Em7]bedroo[D]m town
If you [G]don't put your[D/F#]self up for [Asus4]sale?[A]
[G]Where will you go with your [F#m7]scarves and your mir[D]acles?
[G]Who's gonna [D/F#]know who you [A]are?
[G]Drugs and wine and [D/F#]flattering light
You must [G]try it again till you [D/F#]get it right
[G]Maybe you'll end [D/F#]up with someone [Em]different every [Bm7]night[F#m] [F#m7]
[A]All these [G]people with no [D/F#]home to [G]go [D/F#]home to
They'd [G]all [D/F#]like to [A]spend the [D]night with [Em]you
Maybe I would, [G]too[G] [E/G#] [A]
But tell me
[D]How're you going to make your way in the world, woman
When you [G]weren't cut [A]out for [D]working
And you [G]just [D/F#]can't [Em]con[D]cent[A]rate
And you [G]alw[D]ays [A]show [D]up l[G]ate
You [G]said you were an [D]actress
Yes, I [G]believe you [D]are
[G]I thought you'd be a [D/F#]star
So I [D7]drank up all the [G]money,
Yes, I [G]drank up all the [D]money,[Bm]
With these [G]phonies [D]in this [A]Holly[D]wood [G]bar,
These [G]friends of [D]mine in this [A]Holly[D]wood [G]bar
[Em]Loneliness and [F#]frustration
[Bm]We both came [A]down with an a[G]cute case
And when the [D/F#]lights came up at two
I [A]caught a glimpse of you
And your [Bm]face looked [A]like something
[G]Death brought [D]with him in his [G]suitcase
Your pretty [D]face
It looked so [G]wasted
Another pretty [D]face
[A] The [F#m7]French Inh[D]aler
[G] He stamped and [D]mailed her
[G]"So [D]long, [A]Norm[D]an"
[D]She said, "[G]So [D]long, [A]Nor[D]man" [D] [Em7] [A] [Asus4] [A] [D]
