INTRO = FA#m LA MI SIm / FA#m LA MI SIm

VERSE 1
========
FA#m LA MI SI
Did someone give you something to help you ease the pain?
FA#m LA MI SI
Like the liquor in the bottle, we watched you slip away.
FA#m LA MI SI
And I feel as if I know you through the bars of a song.
FA#m LA MI
Always surrounded but alone.

CHORUS
========
RE LA MI FA#m
But no goodbyes, you’ll always be Miss America.
RE LA MI FA#m
We watched you fly, but nothing’s free Miss America.
RE LA MI FA#m
And as you fall apart, we just call it art.
RE LA MI
Was it so hard to breathe?

VERSE 2
========
FA#m LA MI SI
Was the picture in the paper not the face you recognise?
FA#m LA MI SI
Did the make up never make up for the pain behind your eyes?
FA#m LA MI SI
Cos I feel as if I know when you’re on my silver screen
FA#m LA MI
But I don’t know the dark places that you’ve been.

CHORUS
========
RE LA MI FA#m
But no goodbyes, you’ll always be Miss America.
RE LA MI FA#m
We watched you fly, but nothing’s free Miss America.
RE LA MI FA#m
And as you fall apart, we just call it art.
RE LA MI
Was it so hard to breathe?

BRIDGE
========
RE LA
Does another voice sing in Heaven’s choir tonight,
FA#m MI4 – MI
To fill the silence left behind?
RE LA
And I don’t know what goes on in your mind
FA#m MI4 – MI
I’m sure it’s enough to make me cry.
RE LA MI
Someday we’ll find you lived fore – ver.

CHORUS
========
RE LA MI FA#m
But no goodbyes, you’ll always be Miss America.
RE LA MI FA#m
We watched you fly, but nothing’s free Miss America.
RE LA MI FA#m
And as you fall apart, we just call it art.
RE LA MI
Was it so hard to breathe?
