  			E                             G#m 
Life is not easy for Sister Marie 
    D                            F#m 
She finds that her thought is in error 
    G                         A 
Her captive face haunting the mirror 
Discomforts her 

    E                            G#m 
She listens intently to Father McGhee 
      D                         F#m 
As he tells her that faith is a blessing 
        G                        A 
And she worries that he might be guessing 
His irony 
E                        D    
It would be nice just to live like a lady 
Bm                      E 
And to have someone to marry 
It would be nice to have someone to care for 
B                        E 
Someone to care when I'm buried 
Carefully presenting the semblance of peace 
She fulfills her various duties 
Until all the changes she goes through 
Have wearied her 

She writes to her sister at school in the East 
To enquire how she is progressing 
And startles herself by confessing 
Her jealousy
