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't crawl across the floor 
          Am          F                        Am 
Ah 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 
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 
'Cause you know and I know in the morning I'll be dead 
                     Am                     F             E                     Am 
Yeah you can sit around, yeah and you can watch all the clean white sheets stained red. 
Am7  Am  Am7
