[Intro]

C C G G
G D C       C C G G (x4)


[Verse]

    G       D              C                C C G G
Oh, sister, when I come to lie in your arms
       G      D               C         C C G G
Please do not treat me like a stranger.
    G      D                  C                C C G G
Our Father would not like the way that you act
    G        D           C  G 
And you must realize the danger.


[Instrumental]

G D C       C C G G (x4)


[Verse]

    G       D          C              C C G G
Oh, sister, am I not a brother to you
    G     D          C          C C G G
And one deserving of affection?
    G      D               C                   C C G G
And is our purpose not the same on this earth,
   G        D          C    G
To love and follow his direction?


[Chorus]

C
We grew up together
                       G
From the cradle to the grave
C
Died and reborn
                      G
And then mysteriously saved.
    D       C C G G
Oh, sister… 


[Instrumental]

G D C       C C G G (x4)


[Verse] (Sometimes performed a cappella live, until "tomorrow" in the last line)

    G       D              C                   C C G G
Oh, sister, when I come to knock on your door,
      G     D                  C       C C G G  
Don't turn away, you'll create sorrow.
     G     D            C                 C C G G
Time is an ocean and it ends at the shore
    G       D      Em    C   C C G G
You may not see me tomorrow.


[Outro]

G D C       C C G G (x10)
