Sister Morphine Lyrics - The Rolling Stones
Review The Song (2)
(M. Jagger/K. Richards/M. Faithfull)
Here I lie in my hospital bed
Tell me, Sister Morphine, when are you coming round again?
Oh, I don't think I can wait that long
Oh, you see that I'm not that strong
The scream of the ambulance is sounding in my ears
Tell me, Sister Morphine, how long have I been lying here?
What am I doing in this place?
Why does the doctor have no face?
Oh, I can't crawl across the floor
Ah, can't you see, Sister Morphine, I'm trying to score
Well it just goes to show
Things are not what they seem
Please, Sister Morphine, turn my nightmares into dreams
Oh, can't you see I'm fading fast?
And that this shot will be my last
Sweet Cousin Cocaine, lay your cool cool hand on my head
Ah, come on, Sister Morphine, you better make up my bed
'Cause you know and I know in the morning I'll be dead
Yeah, and you can sit around, yeah and you can watch all the
Clean white sheets stained red.

I think this song along with the album 'Sticky Fingers' is amazing. However both are very much underatted. Just listening to Billy Preston's keyboard play is stunning and just sends shivers down the spine. 10/10

Dear. Web Master.
I am a haiku poet from Japan
I wrote a haiku about Sister morphine and uploaded it to my blog
couple days ago.
Then I have written the link for your webpage today. It will be very helpful for my Japanese readers.
If you don't like it, please contact me. I delete them immediately.
Thank you very much.
