Love Me Like a Man

by Chris Smither, as performed by Bonnie Raitt

 

Intro:  / E - - - / - - - - / - - - - / - - B7 - /

 

         E (4)

The men that I've been seeing, baby
Got their soul up on a shelf
you know they could never love me
When they can't even love themselves


          A (2)
But I need someone to love me

                                      E (2)
Someone to really understand

                 B7
Who won't put himself above me

             A                            E (1½B7 (½)
Who just loves me like a man

E (4)
     I never seen such losers darlin’
even though I try to find the

man who can take me home
’stead of taking me for a ride

           A (2)
And I need someone to love me

                      E (2)
I know you can

    B7
Believe me when I tell you

              A                        E (1½B7 (½)
you can love me like a man

 

Instrumental:

/ A - - - / - - - - / E - - - / - - - - /

/ A - - - / - - - - / E - - - / - - - - /

/ B7 - - - / A - - - / E - - - / - - B7 - /

E (4)

   They all want me to rock them
like my back ain't got no bone
I want a man to rock me
like my… backbone was his

 

A (2)

own--

                                 E (2)

darlin’, I know you can

    B7
Believe me when I tell you

              A                        E (1½B7 (½)
you can love me like a man


    E (4)
I come home sad and lonely
Feel like I wanna cry
I want a man to hold me
Not some fool to ask me why

            A (2)
And I need someone to love me

                           E (2)
Darlin’ I know you can
                B7
Don't you put yourself above me

              A (hold)                  E (ending)
You just love me like a man
