Angel

Jimi Hendrix


Caveat emptor - since this is from memory.
I don't guarantee that these are the exact same chords that Hendrix played, but it should give the basic structure.
I'm using mxrn here which, on including the plain text file, has mangled the relationship of the words to the chords (so much for the benefits of proportional fonts!). I'll leave the entry as it is, though, on the basis that it can still be accessed as plain text.
IMHO its a beautiful song. Have fun with it...........

Playing Guide: --------------
The Db-Eb-E-F chords in the Db-Bb-Eb-E-F sequence can be a bit tricky if you finger the 2nd, 3rd, 4th strings with separate fingers. One trick is to play this shape using just the 1st and 3rd fingers of the left hand. This way you can get the chord onto the fingerboard a lot quicker, although you tend to lose the notes on the top two strings because you can't usually bend the 3rd finger back far enough.
Jimi Hendrix\ Angel This is how you really play it the one posted is wrong. Sorry about the
different tabing this is how I have it written ( G \ \ \ means strum that chord 4 times one for each \ and one for the letter )

Lyrics:
Angel came down from heaven yesterday Stayed with me long enough to rescue me And she told me a story yesterday About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea Then she spread her wings high over me She said I'll come back again to see you tommorow Fly on my sweet angel Fly on through the sky Fly on my sweet angel Tommorow im going be by your side

(title: Angel) (composer: Jimi Hendrix)
Angel came down from heaven yesterday Stayed with me just long enough to rescue me And she told me a story yesterday About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea Then she spread her wings high over me She said, I'll come back to see you tomorrow And I said... Fly on my sweet Angel Fly on though the sky Fly on my sweet Angel Tomorrow I'm gonna be by your side.
Sure enough this woman came home to me Silver wings silhouetted against a child's sunrise And my Angel she said unto me Today is the day for you to rise. Take my hand You're gonna be my man You're gonna rise Then she took me high over yonder And I said.. Fly on my sweet Angel Fly on through the sky Fly on my sweet Angel Forever I'm gonna be by your side. ( I was a bit frustrated to find only the first verse submitted, so please accept the entire text, complete with the intended salvation.)
