Angels And Outlaws  Brian Burns

[C]GOD DRIVES A '69 [Am]CHEVY IMPALA
WITH [C]STAINED GLASS WINDOWS AND [Am]HYPER-STROBE HEADLIGHTS
[G]YOU CAN HEAR HIS ENGINE WHINE AT THE ENDÉOF THE[C] RADIO DIAL.
[C]SATURDAY NIGHT IN [Am]PIEDRAS NEGRAS,
[C]NOTHING TO DO HERE BUT [Am]DRINK CHEAP TEQUILA
[G]AND WONDER WHETHER LIFE IS A TREASUREÉÉÃ[C]‰Ã‰Ã‰OR A TRIAL.

CHORUS

[F]SOMEDAY WE'LL MEET ON THE [G]EDGE OF THAT RIVER,
[C]AND WE'LL FLY AWAY TO SOME [F]FAR, DISTANT LAND,
WHERE [C]ANGELS AND [F]OUTLAWS CAN [G]WALKÉ. HAND IN[C] HAND.

I THINK OF HER AS AN ANGEL ABOVE ME,
I COUNT THE TIMES SHE HAS TOLD ME SHE LOVES ME.
BUT NOW I AM BOUND ÉÉTO LIVE OUT MY DAYS ON THE RUN.
SOMETIMES SALVATION IS LOST TO SURVIVAL
I LIVE BY THE PISTOL, SHE LIVES BY THE BIBLE.
BUT WE'LL MEET AGAIN OVER THEREÉ. WHEN OUR WORK HERE IS DONE.

CHORUS
[F]SOME OF MY FRIENDS, THEY HAVE [G]TAKEN THE HIGH ROAD,
BUT [C]I HAD TO SEE THE [F]THIRD WORLD FIRST-HAND.
[F]LIFE IS A MIXTURE OF [G]SHUFFLES AND TANGOS
AND [C]RHYTHMS AND REASONS [F]I DON'T UNDERSTAND
[F]I'M A STRANGER IN A STRANGE [G]LIGHT.
[F]GOD, HOW I [G]MISS HER [C]TONIGHT.

[C]GOD PLAYS A '59 [Am]BLACK STRATOCASTER
[C]WITH VIBROLUX REVERB AND [Am]BIG BANG PRECISION
YOU CAN [G]HEAR HIS HOLY MUSIC TONIGHT ON THE BACK STREETS OF[C] MAN.
