"NOT THE DOCTOR" - Alanis Morissette

(E thru-out verse, with occasional hammer-on to Esus4)
I don't want to be the filler if the void is solely yours
I don't want to be your glass of single malt whiskey
Hidden in the bottom drawer
I don't want to be the bandage if the wound is not mine
Lend me some fresh air

I don't want to be adored for what I merely represent to you
I don't want to be your baby sitter
You're a very big boy now
I don't want to be your mother
I didn't carry you in my womb for nine months
Show me the back door

Chorus:
G                  A               E            
Visiting hours are 9 to 5 and if I show up at 10 past 6, well I
G       A                    E                                
Already know that you'd find some way to sneak me in and oh
G              A               E
Mind the empty bottle with the holes along the bottom, you see it's
F#m                       Am7           D    E   
Too much to ask for and I am not the doctor

(E thru-out verse, with occasional hammer-on to Esus4)
I don't want to be the sweeper of the eggshells that you up walk upon
I don't want to be your other half I believe that 1 and 1 make 2 
I don't want to be your food or the light from the fridge
on your face at midnight
Hey what are you hungry for

I don't want to be the glue that holds your pieces together
I don't want to be your idol
see this pedestal is high and I'm afraid of heights
I don't want to be lived through 
A vicarious occasion, please
open the window

(Repeat chorus)

(E thru-out verse, with occasional hammer-on to Esus4)
I don't want to live on someday when my motto is next week
I don't want to be responsible for your fractured heart
and its wounded beat
I don't want to be a substitute for the smoke you've been inhaling
What do you thank me
What do you thank me for

(Repeat chorus - then end on a slow, upstroked E chord)


Suggested chords:

    E   G   A  F#m  Am7  D  Esus4
e-------3-------2--------2--------------------
B-----------2---2----1---3--------------------
G---1-------2---2--------2----2---------------
D---2-------2---4----2--------2---------------
A---2---2-------x--------x----2---------------
E-------3---x---x----x---x--------------------

btw, high "e" string is pretty sparsely used in strumming.

Enjoy!
