           G                     Am
Oh Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
       C                     G
i will shout the same to the world
             G                     Am
dear Valerie Plame, so they made a wreck of you
            C                              G
give me the rest of you, and I'll give the world

Em                           Am   
and you were just some silly girl
       C                               G
taking in the sight of your empire's colony
Em                 Am
so i took you into my confidence
          C                            D                   G  C  G
without a thought of consequence to my heart or to my mind

           G                     Am
Oh Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
       C                     G
i will shout the same to the world
            G   Am   C   G
la da da di da etc.

           G                     Am
oh valerie plame, if that really is your name
       C                      G
i will shout the same from on high
             G                     Am
dear valerie plame, i look for that long exchange
       C                     G
outside the bureauchange in Shanghai
    
Em                     Am
i was just some stupid boy on a bus
            C                              G
when you're nom de guerre was codename Caroline (codename Caroline)
Em                     Am
and so my vespa became your chariot
         C                        G
from the greens of mariot, to be etched upon my mind
    
           G                     Am
oh valerie plame, if that really is your name
       C                     G
i will shout the same to the world
    
    
    F             Am           Am/G               F     
    And when they flashed your picture 'cross the screen
    Am                   Am/G
    how my heart seemed to leap out of me
    F          Am        Am/G         F               
    and they attached a list of your identities
    E
    but the one you'll always be

           A                     Bm
is Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
       D                     A
i will shout the same to the world
             A                     Bm
dear Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
       D                     A
i will shout the same to the world
