HANDLE WITH CARE by The Travelling Wilburys

D  C  G
D         C       G
Been beat up and battered around
D        C           G
Been set up and I've been shut down
C                          G      Em
You're the best thing that I ever found
C      D       G
Handle me with care

Reputations changable,
situations tolerable
But baby you're adorable
Handle me with care

         G     B7       C     D
        I'm so tired of being lonely
         G      B7        C       D
        I still have some love to give
         G        B7      C        D      G
        Won't you show me that you really care
             C                      G
        Everybody's got somebody to lean on
                 C                     D
        Put your body next to mine and dream on

I've been fucked up and I've been fooled
I've been robbed and ridiculed
In daycare centers and night schools
Handle me with care

D   C   G    D   C   G

Been stuck in airports terrorized,
Sent to meetings hypnotized
Overexposed commercialized
Handle me with care


I've been uptight and made a mess
But I'm cleaning up myself I guess
Oh the sweet smell of success
Handle me with care

The lyric isnt "I've been ****ed up," its "I've been fobbed off"

^lol yea I see that so much. Also a note. On the last line before the Roy's Bridge, you should hold the C and end in D
before changing to G-for example

"But baby you're adorable
Handle me with care
G B7
I'm So

Just wanted to let you all know, as I was confused at first lol.

Chords are wrong in the 1st two lines of the verses....should maintain that D with the bass chords. Otherwise it's decent.
