Carry Me Carrie v1  Dr. Hook

        [D] Second Street and Broadway, [G] sittin’ in a doorway
        [D] Head held in his hands
        [E]Looked to all the world, like he was [A] prayin’
        [D] Foot wrapped in an old rag, [G] bottle in a brown bag
        [D] I saw him try to stand
        [E] Then I heard the words that he was [A] sayin’ ooh yeah
He said:
(chorus)
        [D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little [D] farther
        Come on, Carrie, carry me one more [A] mile
        [D] I don’t know where it’s leading to
        But I [G] know I can make it if I [E] leaned on you, so
        [D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little
        [D] I carried you, now [G] carry me a little
        [D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little [D] while
(verse 2)
        [D] Well he struggled to his feet, and [G] Staggered down the street
        To the [D] window of a five and dime
        [E] He stood and laughed a while at his re [A] flection
        [D] Then I heard him shouting [G] something ‘bout a mountain
        [D] He could surely climb
        If [E] she was only there to point the right dir [A] ection
But she ain’t no, he said:
(chorus)
        [D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little [D] farther
        Come on, Carrie, carry me one more [A] mile
        [D] I don’t know where it’s leading to
        But I [G] know I can make it if I [E] leaned on you, so
        [D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little
        [D] I carried you, now [G] carry me a little
        [D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me, a little [D] while
        [G] Yeah Carry me, [D] Carrie, you got to carry [G] me
        Carry me!  [D] [G] Yeah! [D]
        [G] [D] [G] 

        [D] Ah, no! Carry me, [G] Carrie
        [G] You got to carry [D] me (Carry me!)
        Got to carry me [G]  (C-C-C-Carrie)
        Got to carry [D] me (I carried you)
        Carry me, [G] Carrie (oh lonely me!)
        Carry me [D] Carrie (Ah, yeah)
        Got to [G] carry, got to carry, girl you got to carry [D] me!
