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


CHORUS
C                        Am
   But I ... work in his factory
      D5
And I curse the life I'm living
      D5
And I curse my poverty
      D5                         C                 Am
And I wish that I could be, oh I wish that I could be
     D5                D5        D5 C5    D5 Am
Oh I wish that I could be   -    Ri-chard Co-ry
                     (break)               (break)

VERSE
    Am                              G
The papers print his picture almost everywhere he goes
        Am                         E         E7
Richard Cory at the opera, Richard Cory at a show
         D5                           D5
And the rumour of his parties and the orgies on his yacht
       Am     G       C          E7
Oh, he surely must be happy with everything he's got


CHORUS
C                        Am
   But I ... work in his factory
      D5
And I curse the life I'm living
      D5
And I curse my poverty
      D5                         C                 Am
And I wish that I could be, oh I wish that I could be
     D5                D5        D5 C5    D5 Am
Oh I wish that I could be   -    Ri-chard Co-ry

VERSE
   Am                           G
He freely gave to charities, he had the common touch
              Am                                   E                E7
And they were grateful for his patronage, and they thanked him very much
      D5                                   D5
So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read
Am      G         C                         Am
Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head
                (break)                   (break)


CHORUS
    C                  Am
But I ...  work in his factory
      D5
And I curse the life I'm living,
      D5
And I curse my poverty
      D5                         C                 Am
And I wish that I could be, oh I wish that I could be
     D5                E7sus4    E7          [ Am ] 
Oh I wish that I could be – ee - e    Richard Cory
