Verse 1:

Ab Fm
Woke up this morning, my head was so bad
Db Eb
The worst hangover that I ever had
Ab Fm
What happened to me last night
Db Eb
That girl of mine, she loved me so right (yeah!) (oh, oh)
Ab Fm
She loved me so long and she loved me so hard
Db Eb
I finally passed out in her front yard (whoo!)
Ab Fm
It wasn't wine that I had too much of
Db Eb Ab Eb7
It was a double shot of my baby's love

Chorus:

Ab Fm Ab
Double shot of my baby's love, yeah yeah, yeah
(Ab) Fm Ab
Double shot of my baby's love, yeah yeah, yeah
(Ab) Fm
A potion that I had too much of
Db Eb Ab Eb
It was a double shot of my baby's love

[repeat intro]

Verse 2:

It was such a thrill it was hurtin' me (ooh!)
I was sufferin' in ecstasy
She had me turnin' flips and-a shoutin' out loud (yah-hah!)
A sip of her love and I was walkin' one a cloud
One night a week is-a plenty enough
It's a good thing for me they don't bottle that stuff [pop!]
Well, my heart begins to fly like a dove
When I take a double shot of my baby's love

[repeat chorus]

Coda [repeat to fade over trash organ riff from intro]:

Ab Fm
Double shot of my baby's love, yeah yeah, yeah

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers

Second-greatest frat-rocker ever (do I need to tell you what's #1?);
according to Dave Marsh, it sounds like it was 'recorded live at Animal
House'. Originally done in the late 50's by Dick Holler and the Holidays,
and covered in 1966 by both the K-Otics and the Swingin' Medallions, the
latter of whom took it all the way to #17 that summer. And as for Holler
himself, he went on to write 'Abraham, Martin, and John' - which goes to
show you never can tell. --AWR
