A Song For Richard And His Friends Lyrics


If you will think now, then you will see
How you can change things
People are waiting, turning away
Tired of killing

Hey now
Will you go away
We're so tired
Of things that you say

Even though you never said word that would help anyone but yourself
Tomorrow is such a bad dream
Oh, bad dream
If you stay now

It will only get worse
Let us pray now
'Cause the truth really hurts
Have to be a man so today with your brothers and sisters lay dying

Tomorrow is such a bad dream
Yeah, such a bad dream
Listen
Please be gone

Go away and leave us alone
Bring police
Go away and leave us in peace
Yeah

Please be gone
Go away and leave us alone
Bring police
Go away and leave us in peace

Will you go now
Will you take all your friends
Woah now, If you'd stood like a man
Even though I know that you cannot be blamed all alone for all the sadness you've caused

Tomorrow is such a bad dream
Yeah, such a bad dream
Oh yeah, such a bad dream
Dig it

If you will think now you will then you will see
How we can change things
People are waiting, turning away
Tired of killing

A Song For Richard And His Friends
  • This did not receive much radio airplay, but is a notorious example of Chicago's political persuasions in the early years of the band. It is a nose-thumbing directed at President Richard Nixon. Nixon was at the apex of his political powers then. Watergate was just around the corner and the notorious burglary that led to his ruin occurred just weeks after the album was released. (thanks, Charles - Charlotte, NC)
  • Robert Lamm, who is one of the founding members of the band, wrote this song.
  • This was the only new song included on the Chicago At Carnegie Hall album, a 4-disc set comprised of songs recorded during a week of concerts at the venue in April 1971.
