Title: Mr. Richland's Favoite Song
Artist: Harry Nilsson
Album: Aerial Pandemonium Ballet
Transcribed By: Luke Peters and Calvin Vanderbilt

   A               A/G                    
When he was young he sang in the band
      F                            E
and his fans all fans all looked the same
      A                A/G                            
And the fans he had were younger than he 
       F                   E
and they loved to scream his name
     C                      G#         C                      D#
They'd leave at the end of the third show, go home to talk of the fun

   A                 A/G              
Well isn't it nice the parents would say,
F                      E
well isn't nice you've got someone
A             A/G    
Someone to idolize
 F                   E
he must look twice his size
A                      A/G             F      E
I think it's great, you're going through a phase
A                            A/G          F             E  Dsus2  C  B  
And I'm awfully glad it will all be over in a couple of days.

A                                 A/G                    
Well the calendar changed and the pages fell off
      F                   E
but the singer remained the same
     A                   A/G                        
And he never grew tired of singing his song
  F                     E
and his fans still called his name
   C                      G#             C                   D#
They'd leave at the end of the second show, go home to talk of the fun
  A                     A/G                     F               A
For most of the fans were married by then, so they had to be in by one

 A                 A/G                                
I'm awfully glad the husbands would say
  F                    E
I'm awfully glad you got someone
A            A/G      F                      E
Someone I realize, who used to look twice his size
A                   A/G             F        E
I think it's great you still remember his name
    A                       A/G        
And I'll bet if he knew you were there for the show
      F                E  Dsus2  C  B
He'd be awfully glad you came

  A                 A/G        
"The time has come," the Walrus said,
 F              E
"to speak of other things"
     A               A/G                          
Like a fallen star who works in a bar
    F            E
where Yesterday is king
  C                     G#              C                  D#          
The fans will stay for an hour or so, they still remember his fame
      A                 A/G            F-let ring            
But the time has come the Walrus said, to call your fans by name
   A    A/G    F         E    A    A/G    F    E
by name          Do dah de doobie dah dah doo doo yah yahhaa

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. Right off the bat it's wrong: it's in A minor; first chord should be Am, not A. Lots more wrong chords too. But it's a nice start, I guess.
