    Em                                                       D

    They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town,
                Em                                 B
    With political connections to spread his wealth around.
    A
    Born into society, a banker's only child,
                Em      D        G                A       B
    He had everything a man could want: money, grace, and style.
    
    Em
    
    Em                                                   D                       
             Dsus4
    The papers print his picture almost every place he goes
                    Em                                     B
    Richard Cory at the opera, Richard Cory at a show.
                  A
    And the rumour of his parties and the orgies on his yacht!
          Em      D          G    A       B
    He really must be happy with everything he's got.
    
          G                    Em
    But I, I work in his factory
               Am                   Em
    And I curse the life I'm living
       Am                    Em
    I curse my poverty
       Am                     Em
    I wish that I could be,
       Am                     Em
    I wish that I could be,
             Am                       B
    Oh, I wish that I could be

    Em
    
    Em                                          D
    He freely gave to charity, he had the common touch,
                             Em                                           B
    And they were thankful for his patronage and they thanked him very much,
                 A
    So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read:
    Em          D              G                                       Em
    "Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head."
    
         G                  Em
    But I work in his factory
               Am                    Em
    And I curse the life I'm living
       Am                    Em
    I curse my poverty
        Am                     Em
    I wish that I could be,
             Am                     Em
    Oh, I wish that I could be,
             Am                       B
    Oh, I wish that I could be
    
    Richard Cory.
