Bass tab by:PJVillanueva

Many people thought this Carl Perkins cover was but one of

those songs they let Ringo sing to please fans and that it

was also rather poorly produced, but I think that its smooth

rocking feel, specially during the solo, and that real funny

original "little dog" verse are enough to make it a great

number. Maybe Perkins vocal part is better than that of Ringo

but I think he does a good job too, not being a born singer,

and Paul's walking bass and George's guitar are really good.

Whatever critics may say, I think those four lads knew how to

rock in a way that few bands ever did or will.

I said I'm sitting here watching

Matchbox hole in my clothes

I said I'm sitting here wondering

Matchbox hole in my clothes

I ain't got no matches,

But I sure got a long way to go

I'm an old poor boy

I'm a long way from home

I'm an old poor boy

And I'm a long way from home

I've never been happy

'cause everything I ever did was wrong

Well, if you don't want my peaches,

Honey, please, don't shake my tree

If you don't want any of those peaches,honey,

Please don't mess around my tree

I've got news for you baby

Leave me here in misery, all right!

Well let me be your little dog

Till your big dog comes

Let me be your little dog

Till your big dog comes

And when your big dog gets here

Watch how your puppy dog runs

Well I said I'm sitting here watching

Matchbox hole in my clothes

I said I'm sitting here wondering

Matchbox hole in my clothes

I ain't got no matches,

But I sure got a long way to go
