An Old Story, by Edwin Arlington Robinson

Am G
Strange that I did not know him t hen.

That friend of mine!

Am
I did not even show him then
G
One friendly sign;
Am G
But cursed him for the ways he had

To make me see

Am G
My envy of the praise he h ad

A C G
I would have rid the earth of him

Once, in my pride.

A C G
I never knew the worth of him

Until he died.
