Verse 1:

	E/B A/C#     E7/D    A/C#        E/B  A/C# E7/D  A/C#
	Do away with people  blowin' my mind
	E/B A/C#     E7/D    A/C#      E/B  A/C#     E7/D  A/C#
	Do away with people  wastin' my     precious time
	A      D/A    A7    D/A
	Take me to a simple place
	      A      D/A    A7    D/A
	Where I can easily see my face
	E/B   A/C#   E7/D         A/C#      E/B  A/C# E7/D A/C#
	Maybe baby,  I'll see that you were kind
	G                F          E  [repeat intro riff]
	Know I love you baby, yes I do
	G                F          E  [repeat intro riff]
	Know I love you baby, yes I do

Verse 2:

	Do away with people  laughin; at my hair
	Do away with people  frownin' on my   precious cares
	Take me to a circus tent
	Where I can easily pay my rent
	And all the other freaks will share my cares
	Know I love you baby, yes I do [2X]

	[solo over verse chords]

Verse 3:

	Do away with things that come on obscene
	Like hot rods,  real fine nicotine
	Sometimes the price is sixty-five dollars
	Prices like that make a grown man holler
	'Specially when it's sold by a kid who's only fifteen
	Know I love you baby, yes I do [2X]

	[solo over verse chords; fade on A]


-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers

good tab anyway ill give it 4 stars... just one doubt keep coming to my mind, what the hell the chords after the / sign are? for example D is D, why D/A? this just messes everything up

More than six years later, but the D/A chord means it's a D chord with an A as the bass note. Good tab!
