Cover of the Rolling Stone

(Dr. Hook)


A
Well we are big rock singers

we've got golden fingers
E
and we're loved everywhere we go,

we sing about beauty and we sing about thruth
E7 A
at ten thousand dollars a show;

we take all kind of pills

to give us all kind of thrills,
D
but the thrill we've never known,
E
is the thrill that'll get you

when you get your picture

A
on the cover of the Rolling Stone


CHORUS:
A E
Rolling Stone

wanna see my picture on the cover
A
wanna buy five copies for my mother
E
wanna see my smilin' face
D A
on the cover of the Rolling Stone



A
I've got a freaky old lady

called my Cocain Katy
E
who embroiders on my jeans,

I've got my poor old gray-haired Daddy,
E7 A
drivin' my limousine

Now it's all designed

to blow our minds
D
but our minds won't really be blown,
E
like the blow that'll get you

when you get your picture
A
on the cover of the Rolling Stone



CHORUS



A
We got a lot of

little teenage, blue-eyed groupies
E
who do anything we say,

we got a genuine Indian guru,
E7 A
who's teachin' us a better way,

we got all the friends

that money can buy,
D
so we never have to be alone,
E
and we keep gettin' richer

but we can't get our picture
A
on the cover of the Rolling Stone

A Little Bit More
When your body's had enough of me
and I'm laying flat out on the floor
When you think I've loved you all I can,
I'm going to love you a little bit more

Come on over here, and lay by my side,
I've got to be touching you,
Let me rub your tired shoulders,
the way I use to do,
Look into my eyes, and give me that smile,
the one that always turns me on,
And let me take your hair down,
cause we're staying up to greet the sun,

And when your body's had enough of me
and I'm layin, flat out on the floor
When you think I've loved you all I can,
I'm going to love you a little bit more

Got to say a few things that have been on my mind,
and you know where mind has been,
I guess I've leaned my lessons,
and now is the time to begin
So if your feeling alright, and your ready for me,
I know that I'm ready for you
We better get it on now,
cause we've got a whole life to live thru

And when your body's had enough of me
and I'm layin, flat out on the floor
When you think I've loved you all I can,
I'm going to love you a little bit more


========================================



Better Love Next Time

I'm your friend you can talk to me
I read your face I see misery
'Cos the one you love has left you dry
Don't start believin' that you're gonna die
Just pick your heart up off the floor and try, try again

You'll find
Better love next time baby,
don't give up and I know you're gonna find
Better love next time baby,
someone will be waiting down the line
With better love, better love, better love, better love next time

Sometimes it's better to let it all go
I've been there and I think I should know
So have a good cry, wash out your heart
If you keep it inside it'll tear you apart
Sometimes you lose but you're gonna win
If you just, if you just, keep hanging in

You'll find
Better love next time baby,
don't give up and I know you're gonna find
Better love next time baby,
someone will be waiting down the line
With better love, better love

Better love next time baby, don't give up and I know you're gonna find
Better love next time baby, someone will be waiting down the line
With better love, better love , Better love next time

CARRY ME, CARRIE
Second Street and Broadway
Sittin' in a doorway
Head held in his hands
Looked to all the world
Like he was prayin'.
Foot wrapped in old rag,
Bottle in a brown bag,
I saw him trying to stand
Then I heard the words
that he was sayin'
He said...
CHORUS:
Come on, Carrie,
Carry me a little farther
Come on, Carrie,
Carry me one more mile.
I don't know where it's leadin' to,
But I know I can make it if I lean on you,
So come on, Carrie,
Carry me a little
I carried you, now carry me a little
Come on, Carrie, carry me a little while.
Well he struggled to his feet
And staggered down the street
To the window of a five and dime
He stood and laughed a while at his reflection.
And then I heard him shoutin'
Something 'bout a mountain
He could surely climb
If she was only there
To point to right direction.
But she ain't, no, but she ain't, no....
CHORUS:
He said
Come on, Carrie,
Carry me a little farther
Come on, Carrie,
Carry me one more mile
I don't know where it's leadin' to,
But I know I can make it if I lean on you,
So come on, Carrie,
Carry me a little.
I carried you, now carry me a little
Come on, Carrie,
Carry me a little while....

I GOT STONED & MISSED IT


I was sitting in my basement.
I just rolled myself a taste
Of something green and gold and glorious
To get me through the day.
Then my friend yelled through the transom
"Grab your coat and get your hat son,
There's a nut down on the corner,
Givin' dollar bills away"
But I laid around a bit
Then I had another hit.
Then I rolled myself a bomber.
Then I thought about my mama.
Then I fooled around, played around
jacked around a while and then
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned and it rolled right by.
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned... oh me... oh my.


It took seven months of urgin'
Just to get that local virgin
With the sweet face
Up to my place
To fool around a bit.
Next day she woke up rosy,
And she snuggled up so cozy.
When she asked me how I liked it,
Lord it hurts me to admit,
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned and it rolled right by.
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned... oh me... oh my.
I'm makin' no excuses


For the many things I uses
Just to sweeten up my relationships
And brighten up my day.
When my earthly race is over
And I'm ready for the clover
And they ask me how my life has been
I guess I'll have to say,
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned and it rolled right by.
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned and I missed it.
I got stoned... oh me... oh my.


========================================



If Not You

Who's gonna water my plants ?
Who's gonna patch my pants ?
And who's gonna give me the chance
to feel brand new ?
Who's gonna iron my shirts ?
Who's gonna kiss where it hurts ?
But who needs a nman when he flirts
the way I do ? Who . . . . . if not you ?
Who . . . . . if not you ?
Who's gonna wake me on time ?
Who'll smile and say I look fine ?
And who's gonna stay on my mind
the whole day through ?
Who's gonna see that I'm fed ?
Who's gonna want me in bed ?
But who'll watch TV instead
because I do ?
Who . . . . . if not you ?
Who . . . . . if not you ?

Sharing The Night Together

You're looking kinda lonely girl
would you like someone new to talk to? Oh Yeah . Alright
I'm feeling kinda lonely too
if you don't mind can I sit down here beside you
Oh Yeah . Alright
If I seem to come on too strong
I hope that you will understand
I say these things 'cause I'd like to know
if you're as lonely as I am
and if you mind
Sharing the night together
Sharing the night together
Sharing the night . . .
We could bring in the morning girl
if you want to go that far
and if tomorrow finds us together
right here the way we are
would you mind
Sharing the night together
Sharing the night together
Sharing the night . . .
Would you like to dance with me and hold me
you know I want to be holding you
Oh Yeah . Alright
'Cos I got a feeling like I do
and I see in your eyes that you're liking it
and I'm liking it too
Oh Yeah . Alright
Like to get to know you better -
is there a place where we can go
where we can be alone together
and turn the lights down low
and start sharing the night together
Sharing the night together
Sharing the night together

The Millionaire

I'm not a bad person
I dont drink and I dont kill
I got no evil habits
and I prob'ly never will
I don't sing like Elvis Presley
I can't dance like Fred Astaire
But there's one thing in my favour
I'M A MILLIONAIRE !

And I've got more money
than a horse has hairs
'cos my rich old uncle died
and answered all my prayers
But havin' all of this money
is gonna bring me down
if you ain't with me , honey ,
to help me spread it around .

I could get myself a nose job .
I could diet for a year .
But I'd never be Robert Redford
'cos I'm much too fond of beer .
Please don't misunderstand me
It's not love I'm tryin' to buy
It's just I've got all this here money
and I'm a pretty ugly guy .

And I've got more money
than a horse has hairs
'cos my rich old uncle died
and answered all my prayers
But havin' all of this money
is gonna bring me down
if you ain't with me , honey ,
to help me spread it around .

I don't mind if you love me for my money
if you love me for whatever else I got .
But except for all this stuff I'm a loanin' Fort Knox
I don't think I'm doin' all that high !

And I've got more money
than a horse has hairs
'cos my rich old uncle died
and answered all my prayers
But havin' all of this money
is gonna bring me down
if you ain't with me , honey ,
to help me spread it around .



========================================



Years From Now

Years from now,
I'll want you years from now
And I'll hold you years from now,
as I love you tonight

You are my one true friend,
always my one true friend
And I'll love you 'til life's end,
as I love you tonight

I know this world that we live in
can be hard now and then
And it will be again,
many times we've been down
But still love has kept us together,
the flame never dies
When I look in your eyes,
the future I see

Wanting you years from now,
and holding you years from now
And loving you years from now,
as I love you tonight

I know this world that we live in
can be hard now and then
And it will be again,
many times we've been down
Still love has kept us together,
the flame never dies
When I look in your eyes,
the future I see

Wanting you years from now,
and holding you years from now
And loving you years from now,
as I love you tonight
