Intro:
Am7  Am  Am7  Am

Am7    Am       Am7       Am
Here I lie in my hospital bed
Dsus2           Am                    Dsus2          Am
Tell me, Sister Morphine, when are you coming round again?
G                                     F     *[fill 1]
Oh, and I don't think I can wait that long
C            G               F          Am
Oh you see    I'm not that strong

Am7  Am  Am7

    Am                          Am7            Am
The scream of the ambulance is sounding in my ears
Dsus2           Am    *[fill 2]Dsus2                 Am
Tell me, Sister Morphine, how long have I been lying here?
G                       F
What am I doing in this place?
E                           F
Why does the doctor have no face?
G                          F
Oh, I can crawl across the floor
          Am          F                        Am
Can't you see, Sister Morphine, I'm trying to score.

        Am7           Am             Am7            Am
Well it just goes to show things are not what they seem-
Dsus2          Am                Dsus2           Am
Please, Sister Morphine, turn my nightmares into dreams.
G                           F
Oh can't you see I'm fading fast?
        Am       F              Am
And the big shot     will be my last.

Am7          Am               Am7                    Am
Sweet cousin cocaine, lay your cool cool hands on my head
Dsus2            Am             Dsus2       Am
Oh c'mon Sister Morphine, better make up my bed
    G                          F
Cos you know and I know in the morning I'll be dead
        Am             F             E                          Am
You can sit around and watch all the clean white sheets stained red.
