Berikut ini lirik dan chord lagu "The Last Time I Saw Richard" dari Joni Mitchell.

The last time I saw Richard was Detroit in '68
            Am                                                            A7
And he told me all romantics meet the same fate someday
Em                                   Am                                            G
Cynical and drunk and boring someone in some dark café
You laugh he said you think you're immune
      Am                                    A7
Go look at your eyes they're full of moon
              Em                              Am                                   G
You like roses and kisses and pretty men to tell you all those pretty lies
           C                                                                 F
Pretty lies when you gonna realize they're only pretty lies
              G                  Am       A7 D7
Only pretty lies just pretty lies

He put a quarter in the Wurlitzer and he
Am                                           A7
Pushed three buttons and the thing began to whirr
        Em                                             Am
And a bar maid came by in fishnet stockings and a bow tie
And she said "Drink up now it's getting' on time to close"
"Richard, you haven't really changed" I said
                      Am                                           A7
It's just that now you're romanticizing some pain that's in your head
                                 Em                    Am                                   G
You got tombs in your eyes but the songs you punched are dreaming
Listen, they sing of love so sweet, love so sweet
When you gonna get yourself back on your feet?
             G                                   Asus
Oh and love can be so sweet Love so sweet

Richard got married to a figure skater
And he bought her a dishwasher and a coffee percolator
              Em                                                    Am
And he drinks at home now most nights with the TV on
And all the house lights left up bright
I'm gonna blow this damn candle out
I don't want nobody comin' over to my table I got nothing to talk to anybody about
Em                                       Am
All good dreamers pass this way someday
G                                                         C
Hidin' behind bottles in dark cafes, dark cafes
                                                           F                                    G
Only a dark cocoon before I get my gorgeous wings and fly away
                               Am             G  Asus
Only a phase these dark café days
