The Bitter Pill

key of [Em]

The bitter pill
More than I can stand
The bitter pill
Took it like a man
They better find a cure
Cause I can’t take much more
It’s the remedy that kills
The bitter pill

Doctor I’m aware of my reputation
I’m trying so hard to be a good patient
Won’t you get me some more medicine
Won’t you get me a nurse
I’m afraid my situation is getting much worse

I don’t have the patience
I can’t take the pain
I’m in a cold sweat
I need some medicine
I’m in no condition
To try to speak
My mind is gone
And my will is weak

The bitter pill
More than I can stand
The bitter pill
Took it like a man
They better find a cure
Cause I can’t take much more
It’s the remedy that kills
The bitter pill

At the infirmary
This is an emergency
A clinic for a cynic
But you better believe
I can’t take the needles
I can’t go under the knife
Better get me something soon
Or I’m gonna take my life

Some kind of virus
Must be a bug
All I know
I need more of your drug
Better get me help
Get me something quick
Lord know I’m very sick

Lord help the man matching my description
Stole into the pharmacy
Took my prescription
It was just what the doctor
Ordered for me
Painkiller called
Murder first degree

I consider my music to be truly American music. I think American musicians are selling themselves short if they limit themselves to one genre.
