Piece Of My Heart

Lyrics: Jerry Ragovoy, Bert Berns
Music: Jerry Ragovoy, Bert Berns

Played by the Rhythm Devils (Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzman). Their version follows Janis Joplin's version pretty closely.

Come on
Come on
Come on
Come on

Didn't I make you feel
Like you were the only
Didn't I give you nearly everything
That a woman possibly can
Honey, you know I did
And each time I tell myself that I
Well I think I've had enough
But I'm gonna show you, baby
That a woman can be tough

Chorus
I want you to
Come on
Come on
Come on
Come on
And take it
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby
Break it
Break another little bit of my heart now, darling
Have a
Have another little piece of my heart now, baby
You know you got it
If it makes you feel good
Oh, yes indeed

You're out on the street, looking good
But baby deep down in your heart
I guess you know that it ain't right
Never, never, never, never
Never hear me when I cry
Oh babe, I cry all the time
And each time I tell myself that I
Well I can't stand the pain
But then you hold me in your arms
And I'll sing it once again
