                Except for 'Secret Agent Man', every one of Johnny Rivers' hit singles
up to this point had been a remake of an oldie.  This (one of the few
A-sides he ever wrote) became his only #1 single on 11/12/66.

Verse 2:

	To him you were nothing but a little plaything (little plaything,
	Not much more  than an overnight fling (overnight fling, doo-wah)
	To me you were the greatest thing
	This boy had ever found
	And girl, it's hard to find nice things
	On the poor side of town


	D                     Gmaj7
	I can't blame you for tryin'

Verse 3:

	So tell me, are you gonna stay now (gonna stay now, doo-wah)
	Will you stand by me  all the way now (all the way now, doo-wah)
	With you by my side
	They can't keep us down
	Together we can make it, baby
	From the poor side of town

Verse 4 [first two lines sung by background singers]:

	So tell me how much you love me
	Come near to me and say you need me now
	Oh, with you by my side
	This world can't keep us down
	Together we can make it, baby
	From the poor side of town

Coda [repeat to fade]:

	Doo-do-do-do-wah, shoobee-doobee
