Handle With Care

Traveling Wilburys

 DD/CG/BG
Been beat up and battered around
 DD/CG/BG
Been set up and I've been shut down
 CGEm
You're the best thing that I ever found
 CDG
 Handle me with care

Reputation's changeable,
situation's tolerable
But baby you're adorable
 CD
 Handle me with care

(chorus)
 GB7CD
        I'm so tired of being lonely
 GB7CD
        I still have some love to give
 GB7CDG
        Won't you show me that you really care

 CG
        Everybody's got somebody to lean on
 CD
        Put your body next to mine and dream on

I've been fucked up and I've been fooled
I've been robbed and ridiculed
In daycare centers and night schools
Handle me with care

(solo 1 - see below)

Been stuck in airports terrorized,
Sent to meetings hypnotized
Overexposed commercialized
Handle me with care

(chorus)

I've been uptight and made a mess
But I'm cleaning up myself I guess
Oh the sweet smell of success
Handle me with care

(Solo 2 - see below)
