Thanx Kirk Anderson (kanderso@wheatonma.edu) for chords, he writes:
For the basic intro, verse, chorus riff play Em at fret 7
then pull off fingers 2, 3, and 4: voila the other chord: 777777,
though I don't strum the low E. (X77777 = Bm11)
Slide it up from fret 6 when you feel moved to. Rinse. Repeat.

Em Bm11 Em Bm11
The Mona Lisa's sister doesn't smile
Em Bm11 Em Bm11
She tried to pose but only for a while
Em Bm11 Em Bm11
Leonardo sent her home Since then she has lived alone
D C D C
With her few belongings and a copy Of a painting of herself unhappy
G C D
She is going to burn it when she's ready

Chorus:
Em Bm11 Em Bm11
Get started, start a fire (4 times)

Marilyn was lying all alone With an empty bottle by the phone
Kennedy was not around She was cold when she was found
But she'd gone where goddesses are sleeping
Where the molten tongues of flame are leaping
Or where the angel's hearts are heating (Instrumental VERSE, INTRO RPT)

Joan of Arc was burning at the stake Somebody had made a big mistake
She had lit a cigarette In an aiport where you get
Your fingers taken off for smoking.
Meanwhile up the road a factory's choking
The ones who killed her work there I'm not joking
