I Don't Need No Doctor
Ray Charles Lyrics


I don't need no doctor
'Cause I know what's ailing me
I don't need no doctor, no, no
'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)
(I don't need no doctor)
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, I tell ya now
for my prescription to be filled
(I don't need no doctor)
(I don't need no doctor)
Only my baby's arms,
Could ever take away this chill
(I don't need no doctor)
(I don't need no doctor)
Now the doctor say I need rest
(hey hey)
Before I need her tenderness
(hmmm hmm)
Put me on the critical list
(hey hey)
When all I need is her sweet kiss
(hmmm hmm)
He gave me a medicated lotion
But it didn't soothe
(It didn't soothe)
My emotion
(I don't need no doctor)
(I don't need no doctor)
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, no, no
Wahhh! my hope to live is gone
(I don't need no doctor)
(I don't need no doctor)
All I need is my baby
Baby, Please!
Won't you please come on home
(I don't need no doctor)
You know what I'm talkin' about?
(I don't need no doctor)
I don't need no mattress (?)
(I don't need no doctor)
I don't need no lotion
(I don't need no doctor)
I say, I don't need, no vitamin pills
(I don't need no doctor)
I don't need no lotion
(I don't need no doctor)
I say, I don't need, no vitamin pills
(I don't need no doctor)

One worthwhile cover of this fantastic song by Ray Charles is by The New Riders of the Purple Sage - check that out on YouTube..

Larry O'Neill

Featuring "I Don't Need No Doctor" on the Sock Hop Saturday Night radio anniversary show - April 2, 2022 (28 years). It was once said that Louis Armstrong played notes that could not be scored on sheet music. The music came from his soul. The same can be said for Ray Charles. He sang notes, shouts, moans, and screams not found in the lyrics, and not found on the sheet music. He had an amazing 58-year career in R&B, Soul, Blues, Gospel, Country, Jazz, and Rock & Roll. He overcame personal struggles to achieve numerous awards, philanthropic works, halls of fame, films, and television; 60 albums and over 200 compilations. This song is a great example of Mr. Charles exposing his soul, and the Raelettes add that perfect touch to the background. The Genius!

It's a shame that the stereo version of this has an almost one second audio cut at 1:05 that's not present in the mono version. It's great sounding otherwise.

Can’t wait for the album. The man and his soul Mr. Ray Charles. 😎❤️❤️🎶🎶
