Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice in the church

where a weeding has been, lives in a dream.

that she keeps in a jar by the door, who is it for?

of a sermon that no one will hear, no-one comes near.
Em Em C C Em Em
Look at him working, darning his socks

in the night when there’s nobody there,what does he care?

Em Em C C Em Em
from his hands as he walks from the grave, no-one was saved.

Suggestions for chord improvements...Replace "C" in the verse with "C6", which is just all 4 strings open. Also can play "Cmaj7" instead of "C/E" in the chorus, it's a nice dissonance to add there (what I do is play the first C/E in each chorus as Cmaj7 and then play the 2nd one C/E as its marked).

About this song

"Eleanor Rigby" is a song by The Beatles, originally released on the 1966 album Revolver. The song was primarily written by Paul McCartney, although John Lennon claimed that "the first verse was his and the rest are basically mine." Pete Shotton, a close friend of Lennon who was present at the time, said "Though John (whose memory could be extremely erratic) was to take credit, in one of his last interviews, for most of the lyrics, my own recollection is that 'Eleanor Rigby' was one 'Lennon-McCartney' classic in which John's contribution was virtually nil.
