Handle With Care  Traveling Wilburys

B[D]een beat[D/C] up and b[G/B]attered ar[G]ound
B[D]een set[D/C] up and I've [G/B]been shut d[G]own
Y[C]ou're the best thing that [G]I ever f[Em]ound
[C]Handle [D]me with c[G]are

Reputation’s changeable,
situation’s tolerable
But baby you're adorable
[C]Handle me with c[D]are


(chorus)
        [G]I'm so t[B7]ired of b[C]eing lo[D]nely
        [G]I still h[B7]ave some l[C]ove to g[D]ive
        W[G]on't you s[B7]how me t[C]hat you r[D]eally c[G]are

        Everyb[C]ody's got somebody to l[G]ean on
        Put your b[C]ody next to mine and d[D]ream 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)
