"Open the Door, Richard" is a song first recorded on the Black & White 
Records label by saxophonistist Jack McVea at the suggestion of A&R man 
Ralph Bass. In 1947, it was the number-one song on Billboard's "Honor Roll 
of Hits" and became a runaway pop sensation. In 1967, Bob Dylan and The 
Band recorded an homage to the song as part of The Basement Tapes. Entitled 
"Open the Door, Homer", the chorus nevertheless repeated the phrase "Open 
the door Richard."

VERSE
               A
Now, there’s a certain thing
       F#m
That I learned from Jim
A                                   E
That he’d always make sure I’d understand
    A
And that is that there’s a certain way
F#m
  We all must swim
        D
If we expect to live off
                  E
Of the fat of the land


CHORUS
         Bm
Open the door, Richard
     Bm
I’ve heard it said before
         Bm
Open the door, Richard

I’ve heard it said before

But I ain’t gonna hear it said no more


VERSE
               A
Now, there’s a certain thing
       F#m
That I learned from my friend, Mouse
A                  E
 A fella who never blushes
    A
And that is that one
           F#m
Must always flush out his house
D                                 E
 If he don’t expect to be housing flushes


CHORUS
         Bm
Open the door, Richard

 “Take care of all of your memories”, said Mick
A                  E
 “For you cannot relive them
      A
And remember when you’re out there
F#m
Tryin’ to heal the sick
D                              E
 That you must always first forgive them”
