Main riff throughout the song is this, with some mixing and variation,
such as slides into it.

'Cause I know what's ailing me
B
I've been too long away from my baby, yeah
A               G    A       E G E G
I'm coming down with a misery

E               G
I don't need no doctor
E                         G
For my prescription to be filled
E               G
(I don't need no doctor) 
E               G
(I don't need no doctor)
            A
No, no, no, I don't need no doctor
G      A                  E       G   E  G 
For my prescription to be filled, yeah
B
Only my baby's arms could ever
A              G   A           E G E G
Could ever take away this chill

E
Now the doctor say I need rest
For I need is her tenderness
He put me on the critical list
When all I need is her sweet kiss
He gave me a medicated lotion
But it didn't soothe my emotion, yeah
