Richard Coury  The Menzingers

Hey folks,
I love this band and I love this song and its meaning.
I think that the few tabs available aren't any good at all.
I don't claim that my suggestion is 100% correct but definetely more fitting than
the other versions you'll find.
Other tabbers out there, no offense, I appreciate your work. ;)
Alright, so we go with standard tuning, strumming pattern is easy to figure
out, just play along with the album version.
PS.: for the Em I like to play Em7, sounds nice as well...
1st verse
[Am] The [C]amber flow, sweat [G]like the glass
[Am] Crimson [C]faces for[G]get the past
[Am] With a swisher [C]sweet and a fireman's [G]hack
[Am] We can remin[C]isce but we can never look [G]back
1st pre-chorus
Un[Em]happiness, a [C]lonely road, [G]who thought success could take such a toll?
Un[Em]happiness, a [C]lonely road, oh [G]oh, oh [D]oo[Dsus4]ohhhh[D]
1st chorus
[G]Richard [Em]Coury put a [C]bullet in his [G]brain
[G]Every day is the [Em]same, loneli[C]ness all the [G]haze
[G]So we live our lives and we [Em]have our fun while [C]he wraps his lips a[G]round the gun
[G]Richard [C]Coury was his [G]name
//electric guitar is kicking in
2nd verse
[Am] Its [C]5 o'clock time to [G]check the quotes
[Am] Down [C]22, ret[G]hink my do's and don'ts
[Am] Secret[C]ary won't you [G]hold my calls
[Am] Cancel my ap[C]pointments, I've got some[G]thing to solve
2nd pre-chorus (a bit different!)
Un[Em]happiness, a [G]lonely road, [Em]who thought success could [G]take such a toll?
Un[Em]happiness, a [G]lonely road, oh [C]oh, oh [D]oo[Dsus4]ohhhh[D]
2nd chorus
[G]Richard [Em]Coury put a [C]bullet in his [G]brain
[G]Every day is the [Em]same, loneli[C]ness all the [G]haze
[G]So we live our lives and we [Em]have our fun while [C]he wraps his lips a[G]round the gun
[G]Richard [C]Coury was his [G]name
 
 //do something like this on the A-string: A|--0h2h4--2--

last chorus
[G]Richard [Em]Coury put a [C]bullet in his [G]brain
[G]Every day is the [Em]same, loneli[C]ness all the [G]haze
[G]So we live our lives and we [Em]have our fun while [C]he wraps his lips a[G]round the gun
[G]Richard [C]Coury was his [G]name
have fun! :D
