TITLE: Love Potion #9
Lyrics and Chords

I took my troubles down to Madame Ruth
You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth
She's got a pad down at 34th and Vine
Sellin' little bottles of
Love potion number nine

/ Am - Dm - / / C - Am - / Dm - / E - Am - / 

I told her that I was a flop with chicks
I'd been this way since 1956
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
She said, "What you need is
Love potion number nine"

She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink
She said, "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink"
It smelled like turpentine and looked like India ink
I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink

/ Dm - - - / B7 - - - / Dm - - - / E - - - /

I didn't know if it was day or night
I started kissin' everything in sight
But when I kissed the cop down at 34th and Vine
He broke my little bottle of
Love potion number nine

Love potion number nine (3x)

/ Dm - Am - / / /
