“T.B. Sheets” is a blues-influenced song written and recorded by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison, recorded for the Bang Records label in 1967 and included on his first solo album, Blowin’ Your Mind!. It later appeared on the Bang compilation, T.B. Sheets. The story as told in the song takes place in a hospital room where a young girl lies dying of tuberculosis and is visited by the storyteller. The overwhelming pain and guilt he feels leads to a desperate feeling of wanting to escape from the closed-in room smelling of death and disease.

“T.B. Sheets” was the opening song and featured prominently in the 1999 movie Bringing Out the Dead, directed by Martin Scorsese.

Now listen, Julie baby
It ain't natural for you to cry in the midnight
Ain't natural for you to cry way into midnight through
Until the wee small hours long 'fore the break of dawn
