Music | Songs to Learn

Elenor Rigby

This is a truly beautiful song exhibiting both simplicity & complexity in its final form. See the links at the bottom of the page to see how complex it can get. I am now trying to play this song on the guitar, and possibly on the harmonica as well. I will follow this process:
  1. Learn the Lyrics of the Song First
  2. Learn to Sing the Song with the correct intonation & rhythm
  3. Learn the Chords required, practicing any complex changes
  4. Play the whole song on the guitar along with the orginal
  5. Play and sing together
  6. Finally make it my own
  • Chords: C C/E Em Em7 Em6

    Ah look at all the lonely people
    Ah look at all the lonely people
    Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice
    Eleanor Rigby, In the church where a wedding has been
    Lives in a dream
    Waits at the window, wearing the face
    That she keeps in a jar by the door
    Who is it for
    
    
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong?
    
    
    Father McKenzie, writing the words
    Of a sermon that no one will hear
    No one comes near
    Look at him working, darning his socks
    In the night when there's nobody there
    What does he care
    
    
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong?
    
    
    Ah look at all the lonely people
    Ah look at all the lonely people
    
    
    Eleanor Rigby, died in the church
    And was buried along with her name
    Nobody came
    Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt
    From his hands as he walks from the grave
    No one was saved
    
    
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong?
    
    

    Spanish - Translation

    Ah, toda esa gente sola.
    
    
    Doña Eleonora se lleva el arroz de la iglesia
    después de una boda, vive en un sueño.
    Espera en su casa con una cara
    que guarda junto a la pared,
    ¿y eso para qué?
    
    
    Toda la gente sola
    ¿de dónde es que vendrán?
    Toda la gente sola
    ¿a dónde es que irán?
    
    
    El Padre McKenzie está escribiendo
    un sermón que nadie va escuchar,
    nadie lo hará.
    Esta remendando sus calcetines de noche
    no hay nadie ahí, pobre infeliz.
    
    
    Toda la gente sola
    ¿de dónde es que vendrán?
    Toda la gente sola
    ¿a dónde es que irán?
    
    
    Doña Eleonara murió en la iglesia
    y fue sepultada ayer y nadie fue.
    El Padre McKenzie sacude sus manos
    mientras abandona el panteón.
    Nadie se salvó.
    
    
    Toda la gente sola
    ¿de dónde es que vendrán?
    Toda la gente sola
    ¿a dónde es que irán?
