Beast of Burden

The Rolling Stones

            
E             B/D# C#m         A
I'll never be your beast of burden
E          B/D#  C#m        A
My back is broad but it's a hurting
E     B/D#        C#m         A
All I want is for you to make love to me
E             B/D# C#m         A
I'll never be your beast of burden
E               B/D#   C#m         A
I've walked for miles, my feet are hurting
E     B/D#        C#m         A            B/D#  C#m
All I want is for you to make love to me
A                     E/G#              A
Am I hard enough Am I rough enough Am I rich enough
    E/G#          A  B
I'm not too blind to see
E             B/D# C#m      A
I'll never be your beast of burden
E            B/D#  C#m        A
So let's go home and draw the curtains
E             E/D#
Music on the radio
C#m           A                       E   B/D#   C#m
Come on baby, make sweet love to me
A                     E/G#              A
Am I hard enough Am I rough enough Am I rich enough
    E/G#          A  B                       E
I'm not too blind to see...oh little sister
   E/D#    C#m         A
Pretty, pretty, pretty girl
E  B/D#  C#m | A | E  B/D#  C#m | C#m  A | E  B/D#  C#m |
A             E                               A
You're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty girl
E                             A
Pretty, pretty such a pretty, pretty, pretty girl
E             A
Come on, baby please, please, please
A            E
I'll tell ya
               B/D# C#m   A
You can put me out on the street
E                        A
Put me out with no shoes on my feet
    E           B/D#  C#m                        A   E    B/D# C#m
But put me out, put me out, put me out... out of misery
E          B/D#     C#          A
All your sickness I can suck it up
E              E/D#
Throw it all at me
C#m            A
I can shrug it off
   E               B/D#  C#m          A
There's one thing, baby, I don't understand
E        E/G#         A
You keep telling me I ain't your kind of man
        E
Ain't I rough enough
A       E       B/D#  C#m
Ain't I tough enough
A       E
Ain't I rich enough
     B/D#  C#m
In love enough
     A           E  B/D#  C#m
Ooh  Ooh  please

repeat first verse

end:
I don't need no beast of burden
I need no fussing, I need no nursing
Never, never, never, never, never, never, never be...
