Love potion no 9  Searchers

        [Am]I took my troubles down to M[Dm]adame Ruth
        [Am]You know that gypsy with the g[Dm]old-capped tooth
        [C]She's got a pad down at 34th and V[Am]ine
        [Dm]Sellin' little bottles of
        [E]Love Potion Number N[Am]ine
verse 2:
        [Am]I told her that I was a flop[Dm] with chicks
        [Am]I'd been this way since [Dm]1956
        [C]She looked at my palm and she made a magic [Am]sign
        [Dm]She said "What you need is
        [E]Love Potion Number N[Am]ine"
        She b[Dm]ent down and turned around and gave me a wink
        She s[B7]aid "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink"
        It s[Dm]melled like turpentine and looked like India ink
        I h[E]eld my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink
verse 3:
        [Am]I didn't know if it was day or [Dm]night
        [Am]I started kissin' everything in [Dm]sight
        [C]But when I kissed the cop down at 34th and [Am]Vine
        [Dm]He broke my little bottle of
        [E]Love Potion Number N[Am]ine
instrumental: chords same as bridge; sing last line ("I held...")
(repeat verse 3)
        [Dm]Love Potion Number N[Am]ine
        [Dm]Love Potion Number N[Am]ine
        [Dm]   (hold)           [A]--si[B]ngle[A] not[G]es--[Am]
Love Potion Number Nine
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
