Handle With Care Chords And Strumming, The Traveling Wilburys

Share the Handle With Care Chords and Strumming:

Did You Know? Handle With Care was the first song recorded and released by the supergroup The Traveling Wilburys featuring George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne & Tom Petty. The bad originally started as a joke. They were going to put the song on the B side of a George Harrison single, but when the record label heard the song they said it was too good and urged the band to do more.

Sadly last music video for the song was the last that Roy Orbison filmed before he passed away.

Handle With Care Lyrics


Been beat up and battered 'round
Been sent up, and I've been shot down
You're the best thing that I've ever found
Handle me with care

Reputations changeable
Situations tolerable
Baby, you're adorable
Handle me with care

I'm so tired of being lonely
I still have some love to give
Won't you show me that you really care?

Everybody's got somebody to lean on
Put your body next to mine, and dream on

I've been fobbed off, and I've been fooled
I've been robbed and ridiculed
In daycare centers and night schools
Handle me with care

Been stuck in airports, terrorized
Sent to meetings, hypnotized
Overexposed, commercialized
Handle me with care

I'm so tired of being lonely
I still have some love to give
Won't you show me that you really care?

Everybody's got somebody to lean on
Put your body next to mine, and dream on

I've been uptight and made a mess
But I'll clean it up myself, I guess
Oh, the sweet smell of success
Handle me with care
