   1. Look-ing like a choir-girl__ She’s cry-ing like a re-fu-gee

      Look-ing like a choir-girl__ She’s cry-ing like a re-fu-gee
    Dm     Am7      G
      One nurse to hold her 
    Dm     Am7      Dm7                G              Em
      One nurse to wheel her down the cor-ri-dors of heal-ing
                    Am                  G7                    C

                   Am         G7                      C
   'Cause she's a-lone__ She loves me like an on-ly child
