[Verse 1]
Marion, born December 5th, 

a Sagittarius
G Mother & father,

two little sisters,

all were immigrants
Am7 America was waiting for you D America was waiting for you G Marion’s family saw his humor

as absurdity
G Nevertheless, he joined

the local university
Am7 And studied for a third of his life D He studied for a third of his life And passed the bar Em7 D G He was a lawyer, working for free C D And was fervid in speech Em7 D G All of the workers that he’d protect C D Say he practiced what he preached
[Verse 2] G Hated the mayor, so he petitionеd

to recall the guy
G For he attеmpted selling off

Seattle City Light
Am7 Two hundred thousand names on the form D Two hundred thousand names on the form G He, with the people on his side,

became a congressman
G Winning a district

often taken by Republicans
Am7 To Washington from Washington State D To Washington from Washington State At thirty-two Em7 D G When re-elected everyone loved him C D Except for his peers Em7 D G A coalition set on his downfall C D Would form in his last years [Bridge] G G Bm He married a woman he knew

for a week 'cause he couldn’t wait
G G Bm C Took part in a riot while
still on his honeymoon
G G Bm They took him away in a jacket

to the sanitarium
G G Bm C Declared as insane,
jumped the fence of the place, & soon
Cm G Returning home, announced his re-election C D D Then called the campaign off again G Almost as if becoming lesser like
Am7 D
yourself had been an art
G Marion, less subdued & sober,
Am7 D
saw the world observe him fall apart

[Verse 3] G He wrote a note & left his

window several stories high
G Landed abruptly near the car

his wife was waiting by
Am7 They say she changed the day

that he died
D They say she changed the day

that he died
G And in the note, he said his only hope

in life had been
G That he’d improve upon the way

the world was living in
Am7 But people only knew him as strange D The people only knew him as strange And nothing more Em7 D G Were you a genius, were you a fool C D Or in need of a cure? Em7 D G Was it in anger, was it in fear C D Or had it been in fervor? [Outro] G All of the quirks we used

to have are now a symptom of
G Acronyms we don’t get to know

that we’re the victims of
Am7 Then people say that we’ll never change D And so, of course, we don’t ever change But still, we try
