Angels On Her Shoulders
-Angels On Her Shoulders- -Josh Ritter- ------------------------- A E7 F#m D... A She walked right in E7 As time slowed down F#m But not enough D To keep me from ordering up A Another round E7 In a bottomless cup F#m That I had found D In the hopes of never waking up the A Jukebox played E7 An old country song F#m About steel guitars D And how he'll try his level best A To get along E7 In the same old bar F#m Though friends gone wrong D E [one strum, let ring] well he once had love but I never got that far [Chorus] [no chord] A she must have angels on her shoulders E A their light wherever she may be E A she says the angels do not know her E D A I guess I'm the only one who sees. A So I got my drink E7 And my fix my rose F#m But I need much more D A Then this powderedblue and rented tuxedo E7 I need a line F#m A-something she don't know D E [ring] Coz' she's probably heard them all a thousand times A So I caught her eye E7 For the next song F#m And the waltz replaced D A the tango like she knows that I don't belong E7 In these shoes F#m I feel all wrong D E [ring] But that's just my pride, what have I got to lose? [Chorus] [Harmonica solo over verse chords] A Well last call called E7 But I didn't hear F#m I was too busy looking D A At her across the remnants of my beer E7 she stood to leave F#m and then it all came clear D E [ring] that life without her was all I had to fear [no chord] A You must have angels on your shoulders E A Their light wherever you may be E A She asks me would I like to show her? E D A I think I might be just the guy you need.
