You Can't Do That  Beatles

I got so[D]mething to say that might cause you pain,
If I catch you talking to that boy again,
I'm gonna l[G]et you down, and leave you f[D]lat.
Because I t[A7]old you befo--o[G]re you can't do t[D]hat.
Well it's the s[D]econd time I caught you talking to him,
Do I have to tell you one more time I think it's a sin.
I think I'll l[G]et you down, and leave you f[D]lat.
Because I t[A7]old you befo--o[G]re you can't do t[D]hat.
Everybody's [F#7]gree--e[Bm]en, 'cause [Em]I'm the one who [F#m]won your l[D]ove,
But if they'd [F#7]see--e[Bm]en, you t[Em]alking that way, they'd l[F#m]augh in my face.
So ple[D]ase listen to me if you wanna stay mine,
I can't help my feelings I go out of my mind,
I'm gonna l[G]et you down, and leave you f[D]lat.
Because I t[A7]old you befo--o[G]re you can't do t[D]hat.

Acknowledgement: This song was originally transcribed in 1993 by Jim Campobello (campo@calspan.com). I downloaded Jim's version and transposed into the key of G used on the Anthology album. I also added some bluesy 11ths and 9ths which give the Beatles that bluesy rock sound. The Beatles also played this in F# in the opening segment of the movie A Hard Day's Night. A great song that I have just rediscovered. Enjoy!
