Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Back door angels  Jethro Tull

Th[C]eir h[D]air was a g[G]olden-br[C]own --[Am]-
th[Am]ey didn't see me w[D]ink my eye. [D] [B] [Em]
[Em]`Tis said they put we men to sleep w[D]ith just a wh[C]isper[Em], [D] [Em]
[C]And t[D]ouch the heads of d[G]ying d[C]ogs -[Am]-- and make them l[D]inger. [D] [B] [Em]
Th[Em]ey carry their candles high -[D]-- and they light the d[C]ark hours[Em]. [D] [Em]
[C]And sw[D]eep all the c[G]ountry cl[C]ean[Am]  with pressed and scented w[D]ild-flowers.
Solo (I haven't tried too hard here):
|: Em D :|: Am D :|
   [Em]They grow all their roses red[Cmaj7],    and p[Am]aint our sk[C]ies blue ---[Em] [D] [Em]
dr[C]op one p[D]enny in [G]every s[C]econd b[Am]owl ---
m[Am]ake half the b[D]eggars lose,[D] [B] [Em]
wh[Em]y do the faithful have such a will[D] to believe in s[C]omething[Em]? [D] [Em]
[C]And c[D]all it the n[G]ame they cho[C]ose, [Am]
[Am]having chosen n[D]othing. [D] [B] [Em]
Solo (I haven't tried so hard here either):
|: Em D :|: Am D :|: D :|: E :|

Th[Em]ink I'll sit down and invent some fool --- some [D]Grand Court[C] Jeste[Em]r. [D] [Em]
And n[C]ext t[D]ime the d[G]ie is c[C]ast[Am], he'll throw a s[D]ix or two.[D] [B] [Em]
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.
