Angel of Mercy, written by Mark Knopfler, performed by Dire Straits
The song can be found on the album "Communiqu?"
I think that this is a really great song, but it's not one of their
most famous hits. Anyway, hope this helps.
Verse 1
 
 -------

Well there's a [E]Peter Pan [D]moon, [C]shepherd's delight
I got the [E]dragon at [D]noon, yes and [C]I won the fight
Now I [E]want my rew[C]ard, in [C]heaven tonight
Just like you [D]promised
[E]Angel of mer[D]cy, you'll [C]come to no harm
[E]Angel of me[D]rcy, there's no [C]need for alarm
The [E]knight in his a[D]rmour, wants a [C]night in your arms
You know he's [D]honest
Chorus
 
 ------

A[C]ngel of mercy, a[G]ngel delight
[D]Give me my reward in [G]heaven tonight
And if I [C]give up my sword won't you [G]give me the right
Sweet a[D]ngel
Verse 2
 
 -------

Well now it's [E]too late for [D]talking we can [C]talk later on
Let the [E]saxophone [D]play us 'til the [C]chorus of dawn
All I [E]need is a [D]little obl[C]ivion
And you don't need pro[D]tection
Well now [E]here come the [D]moonlight, [C]down on your bed
[E]Angel of [D]mercy let your [C]heart rule your head
I [E]don't want your [D]money, I [C]want you instead
Don't need re[D]jection, yeah
Chorus
 
 ------

Oh an[C]gel of mercy, an[G]gel delight
[D]Give me my reward in [G]heaven tonight
And if I [C]give up my sword won't you [G]give me the right
An[D]gel of mercy give me [G]heaven tonight
Bridge
 
 ------

Well if you [D]cross your heart and spit
And swear upon the grave of your [G]mother
You gotta,[D] get into it
Gotta tell her that I'm more than a [C]lover[D]
Solo

Yeah an[C]gel of mercy, an[G]gel delight
