Lyrics:
 F#C#6G#m
 Angel came down from heaven yesterday 
 BE
 Stayed with me just long enough to rescue me....
 F#C#6G#m
 And she told me a story yesterday
 BE
 About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea
 BDF#
 The she spread her wings high over me....she said
 G#mA#m
 I'll come back again to see you tomorrow
 BBsus
       And I said
Chorus:
 EF#m7/E
 Fly on my sweet angel 
 CADD#E
 Fly on through the sky 
 EF#m7/E
 Fly on my sweet angel 
 CADD#E
 Tomorrow I'm 'gonna be by your side 
Sure enough to 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 come you're gonna be my man
and she took me high over yonder
(Chorus)
Well, I don't know how the tab is going to look, since I only wrote it
in Windows Notepad. But if you line up the chords and bars vertically,
all the licks should fall into place. This song was originally played through
a Leslie speaker, but sounds fine through a phaser or flanger.

"Angel" from Jimi Hendrix.
Posted by Erik Klein (kleine@cs.utwente.nl) from the Netherlands.
I've only tabbed the intro yet. The rest will follow later.
The whole song is played with the guitar tuned down a half step.
A Leslie is used to get the 'spacy sound'. This effect can be emulated with a chorus pedal at a medium slow rate.

(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.)
