Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Richard Cory  Simon & Garfunkel

[Am]They say that Richard Cory owns one [G]half of this whole town
With [Am]political connections to [E7]spread his wealth around
[D5]Born into society a banker's only child
He had [Am]every[G]thing a [C]man could want; [E7]power, grace and style


[C]But I -- work in his [Am]factory
And i [D5]curse the life I'm living,
And I curse my poverty
And i wish that I could be, [C]oh I wish that I could [Am]be
Oh I [D5]wish that i could [D7]be   -    Richard [Am]Cory

The p[Am]apers print his picture almost [G]everywhere he goes
Richard C[Am]ory at the opera, Richard [E7]Cory at a show
And the r[D5]umours of his parties and the orgies on his yacht
Oh, he s[Am]urely m[G]ust be h[C]appy with e[E7]verything he's got

[C]But I -- work in his [Am]factory
And I [D5]curse the life I'm living,
And I curse my poverty
And i wish that I could be, [C]oh I wish that I could [Am]be
Oh I [D5]wish that i could [D7]be   -    Richard [Am]Cory

He f[Am]reely gave to charities, he [G]had the common touch
And they were g[Am]rateful for his patronage, and they [E7]thanked him very much
So my [D5]mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read
[Am]Richard [G]Cory went [C]home last night and put a [Am]bullet through his head

[C]But I -- work in his [Am]factory
And i [D5]curse the life I'm living,
And I curse my poverty
And i wish that I could be, [C]oh I wish that I could [Am]be
Oh I [D5]wish that i could [E7]be   -    Richard [Am]Cory
