Mothers Little Helper Chords (ver 2) - Rolling Stones

Mothers Little Helper Chords
Band: The Rolling Stones
Song: Mother's Little Helper credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richard
Album: Aftermath (UK Version, 1966) and 40 Licks (2002)

All the other tabs I saw were wrong so I made my own.

If you're gonna perform this song with an entire band, it could be easily done with two
or even one. If you've got the two guitar set-up, I suggest you have one guitar play
Jones' 'lead guitar' part (actually played on a mando-vox, a guitar, and a sitar) and 
quiet down a bit and play arpeggios or chords or power chords (depending on your style)
have another guitar just play chords. If you've only got one guitar, it should probably 
mostly chords all the way through and then play the riff with your pinky during the E 
(it's possible and quite easy).
Here goes:

Mother's Little Helper

Em* riff:
e-0-2-3--3-2-0-- x2

Intro (used as a break later on):
Am     C       D          Em*
What a drag it is getting old

Verse 1:
Kids are different today, I hear every mother say
       Em                                 F     D
Mother needs something today to calm her down
            G                               C      C   C/B Am
And though she's not really ill, there's a little yell--ow pill

Chorus 1:
         Am                           D7
She goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day


Verse 2 (same chords as Verse 1):
Things are different today, I hear every mother say
Cooking fresh food for her husband's just a drag
So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak

Chorus 2 (same chords as Chorus 1):
And goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And two help her on her way, get her through her busy day


        C                    D
Doctor, please, some more of these
             G                  C
Outside the door she took four more

Am     C       D           Em* (riff once only this time)
What a drag it is getting old

Verse 3 (same chords as Verse 1 and 2):
Men just aren't the same today, I hear every mother say
They just don't appreciate that you get tired
They're so hard to satisfy, you can tranquilize your mind

Chorus 3 (same chords as Chorus 1 and 2):
So go running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And four help you through the night, help to minimize your plight


Bridge (same chords):
        C                    D
Doctor, please, some more of these
             G                  C
Outside the door she took four more

Break (same chords):
Am     C       D           Em* (riff only once)
What a drag it is getting old

Verse 4 (same chords as Verses 1, 2, and 3):
Life's just much too hard today, I hear every mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose

Chorus 4 (same chords as Choruses 1, 2, and 3):
No more running for the shelter of her mother's little help
They just help you on your way through your busy dying day

About the artist behind Mothers Little Helper Chords:

The Rolling Stones are an English band whose music was initially based on rhythm and blues and rock & roll. Formed in London and having their first success in the UK, they subsequently became popular in the US during the "British Invasion" in the early 1960s.[1]

The band formed in 1962 when original leader Brian Jones and pianist Ian Stewart were joined by singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, whose songwriting partnership later contributed to their taking the leadership role in the group. Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early lineup. Ian Stewart was removed from the official lineup in 1963 but continued to work with the band as road manager and keyboardist until his death in 1985.

The band's early recordings were mainly covers of American blues and R&B songs. Their 1965 single "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" established the Rolling Stones as a premier rock and roll act.[2] Starting with their 1966 album Aftermath, the songs of Jagger and Richards, aided by the instrumental experimentation of Jones, expanded an always present stylistic flexibility. Jones died in 1969 shortly after being fired from the band and was replaced by Mick Taylor.[3] Taylor recorded five albums with The Rolling Stones before quitting in 1974. Former Faces guitarist Ronnie Wood stepped in and has been with the band ever since. Wyman left the Rolling Stones in 1993; bassist Darryl Jones, who is not an official band member, has worked with the group since 1994.

The Rolling Stones have released 22 studio albums in the UK (24 in the US), eight concert albums (nine in the US) and numerous compilations;[4][5] they have had 32 UK & US top-10 singles,[6] 43 UK & US top-10 albums between 1964 and 2008,[citation needed] and have sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.[7] 1971's Sticky Fingers began a string of eight consecutive studio albums at number one in the United States. In 1989 the Rolling Stones were inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 they were ranked number 4 in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[8] They are also ranked as the number 2 artists of all time on[9] Their latest studio album, A Bigger Bang, was released in 2005 and followed by the highest-grossing tour in history, which lasted into late summer 2007. During the 1969 American tour, tour manager Sam Cutler introduced them as "The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World",[10] a title which has remained. Their image of unkempt and surly youth is one that many musicians still emulate.[10]
