Put Your Hand On Me

Lyrics: John Lee Hooker
Music: Tony Hazzard

Recorded by Jihn Lee Hooker with Kingfish, with Bob Weir on acoustic guitar. It sounds largely improvised, and John Lee Hooker never recorded it on any of his own albums so far as I can discover.

Come on baby
Put your hand on me baby
Ease my pain
Don't bring no doctor
Doctor can't do no good
I need you, I need you
To heal, heal, heal, heal
Put your hand on me baby
Heal my aching pain
Put your hand on me baby
On my head
Heal my fevered brow
Cool my aching brow
You're not a nurse
You're not a doctor
Heal my pain
Hey, hey, heal me
Your love, your love
Your love, your love
Will heal my aching brain
Hey, hey
Come on

Hey, hey, baby
You know the night time, night time, night time
Is the time to be
With the one you love
Come on baby
Come on baby
Oh, hey, hey, hey

Oh sock it to me

Put your hand on me baby
Ease my pain
Put your hand on me baby
Ease my pain
I don't need, need no pill
All I need, your loving
Put your hand on me baby
