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?

What am I doing in this place?

 EF
Why does the doctor have no face?

 GF
Oh, I can crawl across the floor

 AmFAm
Can't you see, Sister Morphine, I'm trying to score.

 Am7AmAm7Am
Well it just goes to show things are not what they seem-

 Dsus2AmDsus2Am
Please, Sister Morphine, turn my nightmares into dreams.

 GF
Oh can't you see I'm fading fast?

And the big shot will be my last.

 Am7AmAm7Am
Sweet cousin cocaine, lay your cool cool hands on my head

You can sit around and watch all the clean white sheets stained red.
