Oh, Doctor, Doctor


Am (which is actually Am7 hammered on G string for Am) F Am You told me the sunshine was bound to revive me. G Am You told me the cool breeze was gonna bring me around. F Am But something is breaking and moving inside me, G Am And something inside me is tearing me down.

Oh, Doctor, Doctor, you didn't give me no warning.
You didn't help me get ready - now anybody can see.
I can't stand the pity and the sorrowful glances.
They all know my body is quitting on me.


G Am Oh, Doctor, Doctor, don't let me just lie here, G Am Don't let me just wait here 'cause the waiting's too slow. G Am Oh, Doctor, Doctor, please show me some mercy. G Am I'm tired of waiting - please let me go.

I want to open my window; I want to feel the sunshine;
Listen to children go hurrying past.
See the beautiful blackbird settle down in the chestnut.
It's a beautiful sunset and I hope it's my last
.


G Am Oh, Doctor, Doctor, don't let me just lie here, G Am Don't let me just wait here 'cause the waiting's too slow. G Am Oh, Doctor, Doctor, please show me some mercy. G F Am I'm tired of waiting - please let me go!

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1975)

Notes: The song is originally in G minor.
