VERSE 1

I look for joy in a strange place

from the back of a bar

from afar

I see the look on my mama’s face

when her son’s in the corner undone

PRE-CHORUS 1

she says that my life is over

« boy you don’t know what you got till its

gone

Come put your head upon my shoulder »

she gave me her hand but I ignored her

CHORUS

oh Dr John

what am I doing

what am I doing wrong?

Cuz I keep on trying

something ain’t going

something ain’t going on

VERSE 2

I look for joy in a strange place

in the back of a bar

from afar

I see the look of my daddy’s face

when his son’s falling over undone

PRE-CHORUS 2

father my life is over

I didn’t know what I had now its gone

can I lay my head upon your shoulder

if I fall asleep will it be over?

CHORUS

oh Dr John

what am I doing

what am I doing wrong?

Cuz I keep on trying

something ain’t going

something ain’t going on

oh Dr John

what am I doing

what am I doing wrong?

Cuz I keep on trying

something ain’t going

something ain’t going on

BRIDGE

they say I’m a big heart breaker

but doctor I’d never hurt ya

It isn’t that obvious?

CHORUS

oh Dr John

what am I doing

what am I doing wrong?

Cuz I keep on trying

something ain’t going

something ain’t going on
