Mountain Angel  Dolly Parton

capo 2
[G]Pretty as an [C]angel from the [G]day that she was [C]born
[G]Skin as fair as [C]Lily's hair, as [G]golden as the [D]corn
[G]They knew that she was [C]special from the [G]moment she first [C]cried
[G]She was a [C]mountain [D]angel [G]certified
[G]She was her momma's [C]baby, she [G]was her daddy's [C]pride
[G]Good at home, at [C]church and school, at [G]everything she [C]tried
[G]Everybody's [C]darlin' led a [G]charmed and peaceful [C]life
[G]The perfect mountain [C]angel '[D]til he [G]arrived
[G]And oh[C]h, she [G]fell so deeply
[G]Oooo[C]h, she couldn't [G]stop
[G]She gave herself to [C]him, milled it [G]completely [C]
[G]He lifted her so [C]high [D]he let her [G]drop
[G]She gave up [C]everything for him that [G]mattered in her [C]life
[G]All the others that had [C]loved her and she [G]vowed to be his [D]wife
[G]She dreamed of bearing [C]children in an [G]ivy-covered [C]house
[G]The mountain angel's [C]sunshine [D]turned to [G]clouds
[G]The wicked handsome [C]stranger [G]left the way he [C]came
[G]Broke her heart and [C]broke her mind
[G]She never was the [D]same
[Em]They say he was the [C]devil
[G]That had come to steal her [C]soul
[G]She never loved [C]another [D]it was [G]told
[G]They say she had a [C]baby
[G]Some say that it had [C]died
[G]They it's just as [C]well
As it had [G]been the devil's [D]child
[G]They say good conquers [C]evil
[G]But here, evil won the [C]prize
[G]So the mountain [C]angel [D]took to the [G]wild
[G]And oo[C]h, she couldn't [G]take it
[G]Years passed and she had [C]long since lost her [G]mind
[G]She waited for him [C]as her beauty [G]faded [C]
[G]Her parents died from [C]grief [D]before their [G]time
[G]She tried to gather [C]pieces of her [G]life, they wouldn't [C]fit
[G]Beside the tiny grave [C]deep in the [G]woods is where she'd [D]sit
[G]Talking to the [C]child, herself, to [G]him, who knew for [C]sure
[G]Possessed they say by [C]satan's [D]insane [G]lure
[G]High a'top the [C]mountain, for [G]years they say she's [C]seen
[G]Looking down [C]upon the town where [G]she had once been [D]queen
[G]She'd sneak around the [C]playground, watch the [G]little children [C]play
[G]They'd see the [C]crazy lady [D]then run [G]away
[G]They say she roamed these [C]hills for years, [G]wearing not a [C]stitch
[G]The lovely mountain [C]angel now [G]thought to be a [D]witch
[G]She made those wailing [C]mournful sounds
That [G]you could hear [C]for miles
[G]Long after she laid [C]down upon her [D]baby's grave and [G]died
[G]And oo[C]h, her ghost is [G]callin'
[G]She's waiting for the [C]ones that she [G]adored
[G]Through spring and summer, [C]fall when snow is [G]fallin'
[G]Her spirit roams [C]these hills [D]forever [G]more
[G]The mountain angel's [C]voices [D]ever [G]more
