G, Am7, Em
G, Am7, Em, D/F#

Verse 1:
-
G                            Am7
You're on your own my little nightmare
           Em                                    G
You cannot stay here, It's far too bright for you
                        Am7             Em
If they attack you just lay there, play dead dear
                         D/F#  G
It's your only hope of pulling through
-
Pre-Chorus 1:
-
                 Am7                      Em
And seconds they seem, like a lifetime, a dream
                                   G
Recurring, a dream that can't come true
            Am7           Em
And they'll pin it all on you
                          C
after all you've been put through
-
Chorus 1:
-
Em              C
"Sadie G. She's crazy, see?"
       G                    [ch]Dsus4/F#[/ch]
That's what the white coats say
        Em              C
Now Ms. Susan A. you're losing
      G        [ch]Dsus4/F#[/ch]
Every opportunity, to put us all away

G, Am7, Em

Verse 2:
-
G                       Am7                    Em
Now run along my little nightmare, your job is done here
                             G
You've scared them all to death
                         Am7             Em
If they revive them just sit there, just smile dear
                        D/F# G
Make them thankful for every breath
-
Pre-Chorus 2:
-
                 Am7                      Em
The sentence may seem, like a lifetime, a scream
                                        G
That's curdling the blood they found on you
         Am7                 Em
And your knives and clothing too
                   C
Charlie's broken .22

Chorus 2:
-
Em              C
"Sadie G. She's crazy, see?"
       G                    [ch]Dsus4/F#[/ch]
That's what the white coats say
        Em              C
Now Ms. Susan A. you're losing
      G        [ch]Dsus4/F#[/ch]
Every opportunity
          Em                 C                  G              [ch]Dsus4/F#[/ch]
Well they found you and they shipped you up the river the same way
            Em                       C
That you've bound and gagged, you've shot and stabbed
    G                [ch]Dsus4/F#[/ch]
You tried to set 'em free, but they've thrown away the keys
