The Doctor Lyrics

by The Doobie Brothers

I'm a man who lives in the city
I'm a man who lives in the street
From FLA to Frisco Bay
Everywhere in between

Coast to coast there's a question
Everybody's always asking me
People want to know everywhere I go
What can the answer be

I tell them music is the doctor
Makes you feel like you want to
You gotta listen to the doctor
Just like you ought to
Tell them music is the doctor of my soul
I wanna know that

Well, it seems that when I travel
And I'm out there on the road
The freedom I need is the freedom I leave
In my good time rock and roll

There's a healing in those guitars
And a spirit in the song
No matter what condition your rhythm is in
The message goes on and on

I tell them music is the doctor
Makes you feel like you want to
You gotta listen to the doctor
Just like you ought to
I tell you music is the doctor of my soul

If you ever wonder
How to shake your blues
Follow this prescription
Get the cure for what's ailing you

Music is the doctor
Makes you feel like you want to
Listen to the doctor
Just like you ought to
Music is the doctor of my soul

Music is the doctor
And makes you feel like you want to
You gotta listen to the doctor
Just like you ought to
Tell them music is the doctor of my soul, oh yeah baby
