Simon and Garfunkel 
Richard Cory (1966)

To match the original recording then put on one of those cute ukulele
capos on the 1st fret.

VERSE
     C#m                            B
They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town
     C#m                      G#                 G#7
With political connections to spread his wealth around
F#                   F# 
Born into society a banker's only child
       C#m   B       E               G#7
He had everything a man could want: power, grace and style


CHORUS
E                        C#m
   But I ... work in his factory
      F# 
And I curse the life I'm living
      F# 
And I curse my poverty
      F#                          E                 C#m
And I wish that I could be, oh I wish that I could be
     F#                 F#       F# E     F# C#m
Oh I wish that I could be   -    Ri-chard Co-ry
                     (break)               (break)

VERSE
    C#m                             B
The papers print his picture almost everywhere he goes
        C#m                        G#        G#7
Richard Cory at the opera, Richard Cory at a show
        F#                            F# 
And the rumour of his parties and the orgies on his yacht
       C#m    B       E          G#7
Oh, he surely must be happy with everything he's got


CHORUS
E                        C#m
   But I ... work in his factory
      F# 
And I curse the life I'm living
      F# 
And I curse my poverty
      F#                         E                 C#m
And I wish that I could be, oh I wish that I could be
     F#                F#        F# E     F# C#m
Oh I wish that I could be   -    Ri-chard Co-ry
                     (break)               (break)

VERSE
   C#m                          B
He freely gave to charities, he had the common touch
              C#m                                  G#               G#7
And they were grateful for his patronage, and they thanked him very much
      F#                                   F# 
So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read
C#m     B         E                         C#m
Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head
                (break)                   (break)


CHORUS
    E                  C#m
But I ...  work in his factory
      F# 
And I curse the life I'm living,
      F# 
And I curse my poverty
      F#                         E                 C#m
And I wish that I could be, oh I wish that I could be
     F#                G#7sus4   G#7        [ C#m ] 
Oh I wish that I could be – ee - e    Richard Cory
