Intro: C  G x2

C                           G
Everything's so easy for Pauline
C                           G
Everything's so easy for Pauline
Em                                  G
Ancient strings set feet a light to speed to her such mild grace
   Em
No monument of tacky gold
     C                      B7
They smoothed her hair with cinnamon waves
         C               G                   
And they placed an ingot in her breast
        B7          C
to burn cool and collected
Em                         G
Fate holds her firm in its cradle
         C                               C
and then rolls her for a tender pause to savor
B7                          Em      B7  Em
Everything's so easy for Pauline

C                          G
Girl with the parking lot eyes
C                              G
Margaret is the fragments of a name
    Em                          G
Her bravery is mistaken for the thrashing in the lake
       Em                         B7
Of the make-believe monster whose picture was faked
C                              G
Margaret is the fragments of a name
    C                              G
Her love pours like a fountain Her love steams like rage
    Em                               G
Her jaw aches from wanting and she's sick from chlorine
           B7
But she'll never be as clean
       C                      G
As the cool side of satin, Pauline
   Em      G
Pauliiiiiine

B7  Em  x3  

C                       G
Two girls ride the blue line
C                            Em
Two girls walk down the same street
Em                   G
One left her sweater sittin' on the train
    C                               G
The other lost three fingers at the cannery
C               G           B7     Em
Everything's so easy for Pauliiiiiine
       B7    Em
For Pauliiiiine
       C      G
For Pauliiiiine

B7  Em
