You Were on My Mind  We Five

We Five had a #3 hit with a perky folk-rock arrangement of this Sylvia
Fricker song in 1965. Do try to find the original Ian and Sylvia version
(available on a Vanguard various-artists comp, among other places) - you'll
be amazed at how many liberties We Five took with the chord changes, melody,
and even lyrics. --AWR

(Sylvia Fricker)
Intro (bass and drums only until final chord):

Verse 1 (chords mostly implied by bass; note that there are some 12-string
parts on the "whoa-oh"s that are present only on the mono mixdown):
When I woke up this m[E]orning

I got tr[E]oubles, whoa[Amaj7]-oh
I got w[E]orries, whoa[Amaj7]-oh
I got w[E]ounds[C#m] to b[A]ind[B]
Verse 2:
E (xx6450)
So I went to the corner
Just to ease my pains
Yeah, just to ease my pains
I got troubles, whoa-oh
I got worries, whoa-oh
I came home again
(repeat verse 1, completely different chords)
