intro.....A E B E A E B E
He was a bouncer at a Jungle Pony's bodyshop
She was a n[A]ight cashier down at the stop & shop
He was k[E]inda good lookin' she was kinda fun
Down 'neath that b[B]ig 'ol tree out where the [E]river runs
Cho.. Little [A]Angelyne, little Angelyne
As the s[E]un goes down & the moonlght shines
Back of the gr[B]eyhound bus sat two lovers entwined
Just big Bill & little [E]Angelyne
She was just in from Texas didn't know her way around
So he t[A]ook her to a roadhouse on the edge of town
There in the b[E]eer hall light Lord she looked real fine
It was t[B]here he popped the question that was on his mind
It was a s[E]imple ceremony just a friend or two
The preacher [A]asked if they do & they said they do
She bought the [E]tickets on her daddy's American Express
Bought the g[B]reyhound bus & a we[E]dding dress
Cho....
inst verse....
inst cho....
E (NC)
In a 6 dollar motel room with his honey bun
For 7 glorious days in the Nevada sun
He played the table she pumped the slots full of dimes
They came back broke but they had a good time
Now m[E]any fell apart in the years come & gone
But Big B[A]ill and little angel they last on & on
They he[E]ld together when the times looked real slim
Had a boy l[B]ooked like her & a girl l[A]ooked like him
Cho....
Cho...
Inst Cho...
Cho...
Cho...
Inst Cho... to end.....
