                    "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood"
                     (Benjamin / Marcus / Caldwell)

[Intro]

        organ doubled w/guitar, 2X:

        Bm                     Em
        e---------------------|-------------------|
        B---------------------|---------2-3-2-----|
        G-4-4-2-4-4-2-4-------|---4-2-4-----------|
        D---------------------|-------------------|
        A---------------------|-------------------|
        E---------------------|-------------------|


[Verse 1]

         Bm                 A
        Baby, do you understand me now
        G                           F#
          Sometimes I feel a little mad
              Bm                                   A 
        Well don't you know that no-one alive can always be an angel
        G                                   F#
          When things go wrong I seem to be bad


[Chorus]

        D                      Bm                  A
        I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
        G           [N.C.]                     Bm
        Oh Lord   please don't let me be misunderstood

        Bm                     Em
        e---------------------|-------------------|
        B---------------------|---------2-3-2-----|
        G-4-4-2-4-4-2-4-------|---4-2-4-----------|
        D---------------------|-------------------| x2
        A---------------------|-------------------|
        E---------------------|-------------------|


[Verse 2]

         Bm                 A
        Baby, sometimes I'm so carefree
        G                           F#
        With a joy that's hard to hide
              Bm                                   A 
        And sometimes it seems that all I have to do is worry
        G                                   F#
        And then you're bound to see my other side


[Chorus]

        D                      Bm                  A
        I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
        G           [N.C.]                     Bm
        Oh Lord   please don't let me be misunderstood

        Bm                     Em
        e---------------------|-------------------|
        B---------------------|---------2-3-2-----|
        G-4-4-2-4-4-2-4-------|---4-2-4-----------|
        D---------------------|-------------------| x2
        A---------------------|-------------------|
        E---------------------|-------------------|


[Bridge]

        Bm    A  [first 3 beats as per intro]
        / / / /

        G            A       G           A
          If I seem edgy, I want you to know
         G            A               D     Bm/F#
        That I never mean to take it out on you
        G                 A             G       A
          Life has it's problems and I get my share
             G                        F#
        And that's one thing I never mean to do, 'cause I love you

Verse 3:

         Bm                 A
        Oh, oh, oh, baby, don't you know I'm human
        G                           F#
        Have thoughts like any other one
        Bm                                   A 
        Sometimes I find myself long regretting
        G                                   F#
        Some foolish thing, some little simple thing I've done

[Chorus]

        D                      Bm                  A
        I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
        G           [N.C.]                     Bm
        Oh Lord   please don't let me be misunderstood

        Bm                     Em            (fade)
        e---------------------|-------------------|
        B---------------------|---------2-3-2-----|
        G-4-4-2-4-4-2-4-------|---4-2-4-----------|
        D---------------------|-------------------|
        A---------------------|-------------------|
        E---------------------|-------------------|
