Dear Doctor  Rolling Stones



[E]Oh help me, please doctor, I'm damaged
[E]There's a pain where there once was a he[A]art  [A7]
[E]It's sleepin, it's a beatin'
Can't ya pl[D]ease tear it o[A]ut, and prese[E]rve it
Right th[B]ere in that j[E]ar?
[E]Oh help me, please mama, I'm sick'ning
[E]It's today that's the day of the pl[A]unge [A7]
[E]Oh the gal I'm to marry
[D]Is a bow-legged s[A]ow
[E]I've been soakin' up dr[B]ink like a sp[E]onge
[E]"Don't ya worry, get dressed," cried my mother
[E]As she plied me with bourbon so s[A]our [A7]
[E]Pull your socks up, put your suit on
Comb your l[D]ong hair d[A]own,
[E]For you will be w[B]ed in the h[E]our
[E]So help me, please doctor, I'm damaged
[E]There's a pain where there once was a h[A]eart [A7]
[E]I'm sleepin, it's a beatin'
Can't ya pl[D]ease take it o[A]ut, and pr[E]eserve it
Right t[B]here in that j[E]ar?
(solo)


[E]Oh help me, please doctor, I'm damaged
[E]There's a pain where there once was a h[A]eart [A7]
It's s[E]leepin, it's a beatin'
Can't ya pl[D]ease tear it o[A]ut, and pr[E]eserve it
Right t[B]here in that j[E]ar?
[E]I was tremblin', as I put on my jacket
[E]It had creases as sharp as a k[A]nife [A7]
I put the ri[E]ng in my pocket
But th[D]ere was a n[A]ote
And my he[E]art it jumped i[B]nto my m[E]outh
[E]It read, "Darlin', I'm sorry to hurt you.
[E]But I have no courage to speak to your f[A]ace. [A7]
[E]But I'm down in Virginia with y[D]our cousin L[A]ou
There will [E]be no we[B]dding t[E]oday."
[E]So help me, please doctor, I'm damaged
[E]You can put back my heart in its h[A]ole [A7]
[E]Oh mama, I'm cryin' T[D]ears of r[A]elief
[E]And my pulse is now u[B]nder c[E]ontrol
