Back door angels

Jethro Tull

Their hair was a golden-brown ---
they didn't see me wink my eye.    
 `Tis said they put we men to sleep with just a whisper  
 And touch the heads of dying dogs --- and make them linger.    
They carry their candles high --- and they light the dark hours  
 And sweep all the country clean  with pressed and scented wild-flowers.
Solo (I haven't tried too hard here):
|: Em D :|: Am D :|
   They grow all their roses red,    and paint our skies blue ---   
drop one penny in every second bowl ---
make half the beggars lose,   
why do the faithful have such a will to believe in something  
 And call it the name they choose,  
 having chosen nothing.    
Solo (I haven't tried so hard here either):
|: Em D :|: Am D :|: D :|: E :|
(Something like this for "Think I'll sit down...")

Think I'll sit down and invent some fool --- some Grand Court Jester.   
And next time the die is cast, he'll throw a six or two.   
In and out of the back-door, ran one front-door angel,
Her hair was a golden-brown --- she smiled and I think she winked her eye.
