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.
