"Ballad Of Sister Sue" as written by and Neil / Halstead....
[You] tell me I'm lost and I don't seem too sure what to do
[You] tell me I'm lost and I don't seem too sure what to do
There's a fire in my head and I'm blinded by bullets
There's a fire in my head and I'm blinded by bullets
Dancing to nowhere, I'm losing my head and I'm
Dancing to nowhere, I'm losing my head and I'm
And the man at the bar that [night] recall that he needed me
And the man at the bar that [night] recall that he needed me
Sister, I've lost all the feeling
I'm lost and I'm sold
I lay down beside you
Sister, I'm blinded
It's only my eyes
I've sold them before
The man said the drinking is handled [by pouring it right]
The man said the drinking is handled [by pouring it right]
And It seemed much the same when he pointed the gun at his head
And It seemed much the same when he pointed the gun at his head
[Who'd need me then]
In raise of much noise and I checked out the time, yeah
Let all my face down [in the words] of a stranger []
Sister, I've lost all the feeling
I'm lost and I'm sold
I lay down beside you
Sister, I'm blinded
It's only my eyes
I've sold them before

    Lyric Correctiondon't tell me i'm lost
    if i don't seem to sure what to wear
    there's a fire in my head
    and i'm blinded by all i can't see
    dancing to nowhere
    i'm losing my head among thieves
    and the man at the bar
    looked like all that he needed was gone


    the man said the drink in his hand
    would be all he required
    and it seemed much the same
    when he pointed a gun at his head
    filled it with lead
    it made so much noise
    that i checked out of town yeah
    blood on my face
    and the words of a sage on my mind
