			"Love Potion Number Nine"
			   (Leiber/Stoller)


Verse 1:

	Am                          Dm
	I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth
	Am                            Dm
	You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
        C                                 Am
	She's got a pad down at 34th and Vine
        Dm 
	Sellin' little bottles of
        E                   Am
	Love Potion Number Nine


Verse 2:

	I told her that I was a flop with chicks
	I'd been this way since 1956
	She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
	She said "What you need is
	Love Potion Number Nine"


Bridge:

             Dm
	She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
             B7
	She said "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink"
            Dm
	It smelled like turpentine and looked like India ink
           E
	I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink


Verse 3:

	I didn't know if it was day or night
	I started kissin' everything in sight
	But when I kissed the cop down at 34th and Vine
	He broke my little bottle of
	Love Potion Number Nine


[repeat bridge, first three lines instrumentally]

[repeat verse 3]

Coda:

	Dm                  Am
	Love Potion Number Nine
	Dm                  Am
	Love Potion Number Nine
	Dm                  A   B   A   G    Am
	   [hold]           --single notes--
	Love Potion Number Nine

	
Notes:

	1) on the first verse, slide chromatically to the Am and Dm

	2) this is the Searchers' version; the Clovers' original used
	   somewhat different chord changes (and had a final verse about
	   "Love Potion Number Ten")


-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
