Carry Me Carrie Chords

   
Here's one of my real favorites from Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show off the Sloppy Seconds album
Hope it's all right. It gets a little fast at the end. Any corrections would be welcome.


CARRY ME, CARRIE (Dr. Hook) 
	INTRO is pretty simple D G D D and the song is in 4/4 time
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dr_hook/carry_me_carrie_crd.html ]
        
	[D] Second Street and Broadway, [G] sittin’ in a doorway
	
	[D] Head held in his hands
	
	[E]Looked to all the world, like he was [A] prayin’
	
	[D] Foot wrapped in an old rag, [G] bottle in a brown bag
	
	[D] I saw him try to stand
	
	[E] Then I heard the words that he was [A] sayin’ ooh yeah
	
	He said: 
	
	(chorus)
	
	[D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little [D] farther
	
	Come on, Carrie, carry me one more [A] mile
	
	[D] I don’t know where it’s leading to
	
	But I [G] know I can make it if I [E] leaned on you, so
	
	[D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little
	
	[D] I carried you, now [G] carry me a little
	
	[D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little [D] while
	
	(verse 2)
	
	[D] Well he struggled to his feet, and [G] Staggered down the street
	
	To the [D] window of a five and dime
	
	[E] He stood and laughed a while at his re [A] flection
	
	[D] Then I heard him shouting [G] something ‘bout a mountain
	
	[D] He could surely climb
	
	If [E] she was only there to point the right dir [A] ection
	
	But she ain’t no, he said:
	
	(chorus)
	
	[D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little [D] farther
	
	Come on, Carrie, carry me one more [A] mile
	
	[D] I don’t know where it’s leading to
	
	But I [G] know I can make it if I [E] leaned on you, so
	
	[D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me a little
	
	[D] I carried you, now [G] carry me a little
	
	[D] Come on, Carrie, [G] carry me, a little [D] while
	
	[G] Yeah Carry me, [D] Carrie, you got to carry [G] me
	
	Carry me!  [D] [G] Yeah! [D] 
	
	[G] [D] [G] 

	[D] Ah, no! Carry me, [G] Carrie
	
	[G] You got to carry [D] me (Carry me!)
	
	Got to carry me [G]  (C-C-C-Carrie)
	
	Got to carry [D] me (I carried you) 
	
	Carry me, [G] Carrie (oh lonely me!)
	
	Carry me [D] Carrie (Ah, yeah)
	
	Got to [G] carry, got to carry, girl you got to carry [D] me!
