ANGELS AMONG US Alabama
[G]I was walkin' [D/F#]home from school
[Em7]on a [C] [add] [D] cold winter day,
[G]took a short cut [Em7]through the [C] [add] [D]woods
and I [D]lost my way.
[G]It was gettin' [D/F#]late, [Em7]and I was [C] [add] [D]scared and alone.
[G]Then a kind old [Fm7]man took my [C (add D)band, and led D]me home.
but [C] [add] [D]he was standing [D7]there,
and [C] [add] [D]I knew in my [G/B]heart
he was the [C] [add] [D]answer to my [D7]prayer.
Oh, [G] [add] [A]I be-[Em7]lieve there are [Am7]Angels A-[D7]mong Us,
[G] [add] [A]sent down [Em7]to us from [C] [add] [D]somewhere up above.
[D7]They come to [G] [add] [A]you and [Em7]me in [C]our darkest hours[D7]
to [C] [add] [D]show us how to [Bm7]live
to [C] [add] [D]teach us how to [D7] give
to [C] [add] [D]guide us with a [D7]light of [G]love.
G Bm7 |C add D D7 |
When life held troubled times
and had me down on my knees
there's always been someone
to come along and comfort me
a kind word from a stranger
to lend a helping hand
a phone call from a friend
just to say I understand
Now ain't it kind of funny
at the dark end of the road
someone light the way with just a single ray of hope.
[C] [add] [D]They wear so [Bm7]many faces,
[C] [add] [D]show up in the [Bm7]strangest places
and [C] [add] [D]grace us with their [Bm7]mercies [Am7]in our time of [D7]need.
then repeat, "to guide us with a light of love"
G |C |D7 |G
