[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/boo_hewerdine/medicine_tab.html ]
E E                     E    B
   did you fall out of your family tree
E A               A  B
   here's a kiss to mend your knee
           A                   B          E(0)    A B
everybody needs some kind of medicine sometimes


E E              E    B
   how long did you think you'd last
E A                            A  B
   with your sleeping pills and laughing gas
            A                  B          E(0)
everybody needs some kind of medicine sometimes


[bridge]:
F#m
throw your hats at the moon in georges square,
F#m [sl.up] A                  A G#m F#m
was  that  ever us

F#m
climbing walls giving names to the stars
A                B
was that ever us


E E              E B
   and if you come home with me,
E A                          A  B
   I'll slip a little something in your tea
           A                  B          E(0)
everybody needs some kind of medicine sometimes


[bridge]


E E                       E B
  you've been hanging out in casualty
E A                   A B
  for shooting too much mercury
           A                  B          E(0)     B  A
everybody needs some kind of medicine sometimes


E E               E   B
  oh and if you come home with me,
E A                      A  B
  I'll score for you if you score for me
            A                  B          E(0)
everybody needs some kind of medicine sometimes


chords :

 E  A  D  G  B  E
12 14 14 13 12 12  -  E
 7  9  9  8  7  7  -  B
 5  7  7  6  5  5  -  A
 0  2  2  1  0  0  -  E(0)
 2  4  4  2  2  2  -  F#m
 4  6  6  4  4  4  -  G#m

[sl.up] is slide up from F#m to A


This arrangement is quite different from Eddi Reader's album version, but
it sounds roughly like how a guitar arrangement of this song should do.
Improvements welcome.
