                        "Love Potion Number Nine"

[Verse 1]

        Am                          Dm
        I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth
        Am                            Dm
        You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
        C                                 Am
        She's got a pad down at 34th and Vine
        Sellin' little bottles of
        E                   Am
        Love Potion Number Nine

[Verse 2]

        I told her that I was a flop with chicks
        I'd been this way since 1956
        She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
        She said "What you need is
        Love Potion Number Nine"


        She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
        She said "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink"
        It smelled like turpentine and looked like India ink
        I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

[Verse 3]

        I didn't know if it was day or night
        I started kissin' everything in sight
        But when I kissed the cop down at 34th and Vine
        He broke my little bottle of
        Love Potion Number Nine

[repeat bridge, first three lines instrumentally]

[repeat verse 3]


        Dm                  Am
        Love Potion Number Nine
        Dm                  Am
        Love Potion Number Nine
        Dm                  A   B   A   G    Am
           [hold]           --single notes--
        Love Potion Number Nine


        1) on the first verse, slide chromatically to the Am and Dm
        2) this is the Searchers' version; the Clovers' original used
           somewhat different chord changes (and had a final verse about
           "Love Potion Number Ten")

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
