   Went to the fortune teller

And had my fortune read
 |D           C      |A        D/A 
I didn't know what to tell her

I left there in a hurry

Lookin' forward to my big surprise

The next day I discovered

That the fortune teller told me lies

I hurried back down to that woman
As mad as I could be
I told her I didn't see nobody
And that she made a fool out of me

 Then something struck me
  |E               D  |B    A  B|
As if it came from up above

While lookin' at the fortune teller
A B      |D5     |     
I fell in love

Last verse of the Merseybeats and Hollies-Version:

Now I'm a happy fella
I'm married to the fortune teller
We're happy as we can be
And now I get my fortune told for free
