Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Anyone who attempts this one, I would really appreciate your feedback
because I'm tabbing it quickly and I may well have made some mistakes.
I CRDed the whole song because the chords change from verse to verse.
There are of course other little twiddly bits than the 2 fills I've
tabbed, but I'm sure you'll get the picture...
I'm not even going to attempt to tab Ry Cooder's slide guitar for
this- are there any tab conventions for slide?

[Intro:]

Am7  Am  Am7  Am


[Verse]
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?


[Bridge]
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.


[Verse]
        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.


[Verse]
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.
