[Verse 1]

G                          C G
Wrote a letter this mornin', 
G                  C G
Put it in your hat,
G                       C G
'Cause no one to read it 
G                        C  G
And I know you knew that.
F 
I bought a joke, 
G 
a trick or two, 
C      C/B        Am   Am/G
Just to  bring and  show you,
F                   G
Caught ya with the trickster too
C           C/B    Am     Am/G
Sometimes I wonder how ya knew
Am
A hypnotist, fancytalker,
                           C        Bb        F      C
Ruben Remus ain't no doctor 


[Verse 2]

G                                   C G
I knew the man and tried to remember
G                                      C G
Just where it was that I'd seen his face.
G                          C G
Long ago, in a movie show,
G                          C G
He was like that man singin' bass.
F               G
Knew him by his nurs'ry rhyme:
C      C/B        Am   Am/G
The Story Of The Rabbit Man.
F                   G
Fell right in and said to him:
C      C/B        Am   Am/G
"I'd like to help you if I can."
Am
I know the film would only shock ya,
                           C        Bb        F      C
Ruben Remus ain't no doctor!


[Verse 3]

G                                   C G
He only needed what you had,
G                     C G
Asked for nothing more,
G                             C G
Said he'd like to take you on,
G                          C G
But it's been done before.
F                       G
You couldn't see he's a travelin' man
C      C/B        Am   Am/G
And he cannot take your hand.
F                 G
It's very hard to understand
C      C/B        Am   Am/G
Why his songs were never banned.
Am
Guess the man would never knock ya,
                           C        Bb        F      C
Ruben Remus ain't no doctor!


[Verse 4]

G                                   C G
No one seen ya since he's been gone,
G                          C G
It's been a day, maybe more.
G                          C G
I took a walk in your yard
G                            C G
And knocked on your back door.
F                       G
Why don't you let me in?
C      C/B        Am   Am/G
I'm not the man who did ya in.
F                  G
Is mr. Remus still your friend?
C       C/B       Am       Am/G
You say you don't remember him
F      
Turn me down, would ya?
                            C
Well, I've got news for you.

F
Turn me down would ya,
               C    C/B
Can't ya tell
Am                    F                   C
I'm gonna change your mind before I'm... trough...
