G
Oh sister, don't be afraid of me
I won't be nailing you down in the nursery
C
Just like the rest of them did
With those watery, wandering fingers of spit
                         G              C  G
That were supposed to be glorious and fine

G
Oh sister, won't you believe in me
I only wanted to be hard on the family
C
Here with you now in this silly infirmary
Your mother makes frantic and drunk calls from Germany
G           C G
All of the time

G
And oh sister, sweet brown and beulahery
Milk from your blisters on your grandmother's jewelry
C
There in the parlor all naked in front of me
                                                   G        C   G
Watching the lights from the cracks making archery animal designs

Em                          C
Rose Wallace Goldaline just moves her mouth over anything
G                              D
Fleshy free and flowering like oranges out in the open
    Em
But don't you waste your sins again
    C
She don't need you or won't fuck your friends
    G                            D
And you, you're American, self important boiling over
   Em
To prove that she must still exist
    C
She moves herself about her fist
         G
And won't ever never give a shit
      D                           Em
About all those words you're wasting to gain
           C                  G
Some pretty bright and bubbly wondrous dream
              D                                    Em
You'd like to kill and cling and claim her as your own
                   C
But don't you worry
                          G
All those dainty and dirty 
              D                             G
Emotions just go away and fade out on their own

G
Sister, now that you're leaving
Our fingers will falter
Our lungs, we'll be leaking
    C
All over each other and without even speaking
We'll know that it's over and smile and go greeting
G              C  G
Whatever comes next
G
And oh sister
You're getting married to some angry twister
That you'll have to carry home
C
Drunk every evening from the cemetery
If he makes it back half alive you can bury him
G          C   G
Under your sheets

G
And oh sister
Now that you're grieving
I can not imagine there is any meaning
   C
Forgetting you ever could 
Once have the feeling that made you keep on
                             G           C   G
And continue to breathing of all of this world

                       D
And in an age of empty rings
                         C
I don't want to feel a thing
                     G  C  G
I don't even want to know

G                 D
Rose Wallace Goldaline
                      C
Don't you ever die on me
                          G
Don't you own the way you go

Oh Sister
