"I Don't Need No Doctor (Ray Charles cover)" as written by Nick Ashford, Valerie Simpson and Josephine Armstead....
I don't need no doctor
'Cause I know what's ailing me
I don't need no doctor,
'Cause I know what's ailing me

I've been too long away from my baby, ahh!
I'm coming down with a misery

I don't need no doctor
For my prescription to be filled
(I don't need no doctor)
(I don't need no doctor)

I don't need no doctor,
For my prescription to be filled

Only my baby's arms
Could ever take away this chill

Now the doctor say I need rest
But all I need is her tenderness
He Put me on the critical list
When all I need is her sweet kiss

He gave me a medicated lotion
But it didn't soothe my emotion

I don't need no doctor
For my hope to live is gone
(I don't need no doctor)
(I don't need no doctor)

I don't need no doctor,
For hope to live is gone

To live is gone

All I need is my baby please
Won't you please just come on home
Come on home

    General Commentnobody has commented on this yet? the way john opens with that lick is soooooo good! its very bluesy (could it be future trio material?) but it rocks! as far as the meaning goes i think it's fairly self-explanatory; it's just that brutal missing of your special someone, waiting to see them again. long business trip and all you can think is "god i miss her so much" and you're all in a funk and people are like "you look bad, can i get you a tylenol or aspirin or something" and you're thinking "NO people i just want to love my baby and hold her!"

    that's pretty much it in my eyes. great song great lyrics great artist great cover.......its just great!
