Artist: The Beatles
Words & Music By: McCartney/ Lennon


    F                    G      C      Am G
The world is treating me bad... misery. 
 
C               F
I'm the kind of guy,
    C             F
Who never used to cry,
                         G      C     Am
The world is treating me bad... misery!
 
C                     F
I've lost her now for sure,
  C                F
I won't see her no more,
                G       C
It's gonna be a drag... misery!
 
Am                           C
I'll remember all the little things we've done
Am                                 G7       
Can't she see she'll always be the only one, only one.
 
C                F
Send her back to me,
       C            F
'Cause everyone can see
                   G     C
Without her I will be in misery
 
Am                           C
I'll remember all the little things we've done.
Am                                  G7      
She'll remember and she'll miss her only one, lonely one.
 
C                F
Send her back to me,
       C            F
'Cause everyone can see,
                   G     C      Am
Without her I will be in misery (oh oh oh)
   C       Am
In misery (ooh ee ooh ooh)
   C       Am                 C  Am...
My misery (la la la la la la)
