Drunken Angel-crd  Lucinda Williams

[D]Sun came up it was [Em]another day
And the [G]sun went down you were [D]blown away
[Em]Why'd you let go of [G]your guitar
[Em]Why'd you ever let it [G]go that far
Drunken [D]Angel
[D]Could've held on to that l[Em]ong smooth neck
[G]Let your hand remember e[D]very fret
[Em]Fingers touching each [G]shiny string
But [Em]you let go of eve[G]rything
Drunken [D]Angel
Drunken [Em]Angel
[G]You're on the [D]other side
Drunken [Em]Angel
[G]You're on the o[D]ther side
[D]Followers would [Em]cling to you
[G]Hang around just to [D]meet you
[Em]Some threw roses [G]at your feet
[Em]And watch you pass out [G]on the street
Drunken [D]Angel
[D]Feed you and pay off [Em]all your debts
[G]Kiss your brow [D]taste your sweat
[Em]Write about your s[G]oul your guts
[Em]Criticize you and w[G]ish you luck
Drunken [D]Angel
Drunken [Em]Angel
[G]You're on the [D]other side
Drunken [Em]Angel
[G]You're on the o[D]ther side
SOLO
[D]Some kind of savior [Em]singing the blues
[G]A derelict in your d[D]uct tape shoes
[Em]Your orphan  clothes and[G] your long dark hair
[Em]Looking like you [G]didn't care
Druken [D]Angel
[D]Blood spilled out from the [Em]hole in your heart
[G]Over the strings of y[D]our guitar
[Em]The worn down places [G]in the wood
[Em]That once made you [G]feel so good
Druken [D]Angel
Drunken [Em]Angel
[G]You're on the [D]other side
Drunken [Em]Angel
[G]You're on the o[D]ther side
[D]Sun came up it was [Em]another day
And the [G]sun went down you were [D]blown away
[Em]Why'd you let go of [G]your guitar
[Em]Why'd you ever let it [G]go that far
