[Verse 1]
     D5                              C5
They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town
       D5                       A5
With political connections to spread his wealth around
G5
Born into society a banker's only child
       D5     C5      F5              A5
He had everything a man could want; power, grace and style

[Chorus 1]
F5                   D5
But I    work in his factory
      G5
And I curse the life I'm living,

And I curse my poverty
                                 F5                D5
And I wish that I could be, oh I wish that I could be

[Verse 2]

     D5                              C5
The papers print his picture almost everywhere he goes
       D5                           A5
Richard Cory at the opera, Richard Cory at a show
         G5
And the rumours of his parties and the orgies on his yacht
        D5     C5      F5         A5
Oh, he surely must be happy with everything he's got

[Chorus 2]

F5                   D5
But I    work in his factory
       G5
And I curse the life I'm living,

And I curse my poverty
                                 F5                D5
And I wish that I could be, oh I wish that I could be

[Verse 3]
    D5                          C5
He freely gave to charities, he had the common touch
               D5                                     A5
And they were grateful for his patronage, and they thanked him very much
      G5
So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read
D5       C5        F5                       D5
Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head

[Chorus 3]

F5                   D5
But I    work in his factory
       G5
And I curse the life I'm living,

And I curse my poverty
                                 F5                D5
And I wish that I could be, oh I wish that I could be
     G5                A5                D5
Oh I wish that I could be   -    Richard Cory
