The Menzingers - Richard Coury chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey folks,
I love this band and I love this song and its meaning. 
I think that the few tabs available aren't any good at all. 
I don't claim that my suggestion is 100% correct but definetely more fitting than 
the other versions you'll find. 
Other tabbers out there, no offense, I appreciate your work. ;)
Alright, so we go with standard tuning, strumming pattern is easy to figure
out, just play along with the album version. 
PS.: for the Em I like to play Em7, sounds nice as well...


1st verse

Am      C                 G
    The amber flow, sweat like the glass
Am          C        G
    Crimson faces forget the past
Am                 C                     G
    With a swisher sweet and a fireman's hack
Am              C                          G
    We can reminisce but we can never look back


1st pre-chorus

  Em           C            G
Unhappiness, a lonely road, who thought success could take such a toll?
  Em           C               G      D Dsus4 D
Unhappiness, a lonely road, oh oh, oh ooohhhh


1st chorus

G       Em          C             G
Richard Coury put a bullet in his brain
G                Em          C            G
Every day is the same, loneliness all the haze
G                           Em                 C                  G
So we live our lives and we have our fun while he wraps his lips around the gun
G       C             G
Richard Coury was his name

//electric guitar is kicking in


2nd verse

Am      C                 G
    Its 5 o'clock time to check the quotes
Am       C      G
    Down 22, rethink my do's and don'ts
Am        C             G
    Secretary won't you hold my calls
Am              C                        G
    Cancel my appointments, I've got something to solve


2nd pre-chorus (a bit different!)

  Em           G            Em                        G
Unhappiness, a lonely road, who thought success could take such a toll?
  Em           G               C      D Dsus4 D
Unhappiness, a lonely road, oh oh, oh ooohhhh


2nd chorus

G       Em          C             G
Richard Coury put a bullet in his brain
G                Em          C            G
Every day is the same, loneliness all the haze
G                           Em                 C                  G
So we live our lives and we have our fun while he wraps his lips around the gun
G       C             G
Richard Coury was his name

//do something like this on the A-string:       A|--0h2h4--2--


last chorus

G       Em          C             G
Richard Coury put a bullet in his brain
G                Em          C            G
Every day is the same, loneliness all the haze
G                           Em                 C                  G
So we live our lives and we have our fun while he wraps his lips around the gun
G       C             G
Richard Coury was his name
