I can’t quite make up my mind whether it should be C#m or C#... but I’ll 
let everyone be the judge of that themselves. Have loads of fun playing and 
singing this awesome peace of work! 
Love, love Mika! 
(And me, for giving you the almost-100%-accurate-chords XD)
Xxx and hugs, Ruby

                     Am                     C         G          E7
I look for joy in a strange place, from the back of a bar, from afar
                        Am                   C             G       E7
I see the look on my momma’s face, when her son’s in the corner, undone
                  A          D    C#m           Bm       
She says that my life is over: “Boy, you don’t know what you got, 
            E7                    A                 B
‘till it’s gone. Come, put your head upon my shoulder”
                 E
She gave me her hand, but I ignored her

Chorus:
A   E  A      D  C#m Bm            E7
Oh, doctor John, what am I doing, what am I doing wrong?
       A  E  A        D  C#   Bm                     E7                  Am 
‘cause I keep on trying, but something ain’t going, something ain’t going on
C           G     E7
   Doctor John

                       Am                  C         G          E7
I look for joy in a strange place, in the back of a bar, from afar
                      Am                     C            G        E7
I see the look on my daddy’s face, when his son’s falling over, undone
             A          D  C#m  Bm                            E7
“Father, my life is over, I didn’t know what I had, now it’s gone
               A                    B               E        
Can I lay my head upon your shoulder? If I fall asleep, will it be over?”

Chorus:
A  E A       D C#m Bm              E7
Oh, doctor John, what am I doing, what am I doing wrong?
       A  E  A     D C# Bm              E7                                  
‘cause I keep on trying, but something ain’t going, something ain’t going on

              Am               G               C         B          E7
You say I’m a big heart breaker, but doctor I never hurt ya, isn’t it obvious?

Chorus:
A  E   A      D  C#m Bm              E7
Oh, doctor John, what am I doing, what am I doing wrong?
    A  E  A      D C# Bm                E7                                  
‘cause I keep on trying, but something ain’t going, something ain’t going on

A E  A                                         D  C#m Bm              
Another day, another break-up (Oh, doctor John)
        E7
We hold on and on, we hold on and on and on
A E A                                          D  C#m Bm              
Another day, another wake up (I keep on trying)
        E7
We hold on and on, we hold on and on and on

A E A                                          D  C#m Bm             
Another day, another break-up (Oh, doctor John)
                  E7
What am I doing, what am I doing wrong? (We hold on and on, we hold on and on and on)
    A E A                                               D  C#m Bm          
Cuz I… (Another day, another wake up (I keep on trying))
                              E7                    
But something ain’t going, something ain’t going on… (We hold on and on, we hold on and on and on)

A E A                                             D  C#m Bm       
 (Another day, another break-up (Oh, doctor John))
                  E7
What am I doing, what am I doing wrong?! (We hold on and on, we hold on and on and on)
    A E A                                             D  C#m Bm
Cuz I.. (Another day, another wake up (I keep on trying))
                           E7                    Am  C
But something ain’t going, something ain’t going on… (We hold on and on, we hold on and on and on)
        G       E7       Am     C        G         E7
Doctor John…             Ooh… 
        Am
Doctor John
