Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Words & Music:

The Animals


Intro:  [tabber unknown]








Am                G             F                        E

Baby, do you understand me now, sometimes I get a little mad.

Am                                G

Don't you know no one in life can always be an angel.

F                                       E

When everything goes wrong, it seems so bad.



    C                       Am

But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good

F        [n.c.]                         Am

Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.


Baby, sometimes I'm so care free, with a joy that's hard to hide,

And other times it seems all I ever do is worry,

Then you're bound to see my other side.




F          G       F          G

If I seem edgy, I want you to know,

F             G               C     Am

That I never mean to take it out on you,

Life has its problems, and I get my share,

But that is one thing I never mean to do, cause I love you


Oh, oh baby, you know I'm human, I have faults just like any other one

But sometimes I find myself long regretting,

Some simple thing, some foolish thing I've done.
