Angels on Her Shoulders  Josh Ritter


A E7 F#m D...
She walked right [A]in
As time slowe[E7]d down
But not eno[F#m]ugh
To keep me[D] from ordering up
Another roun[A]d
In a bottomless [E7]cup
That I had [F#m]found
In the ho[D]pes of never waking up the
J[A]ukebox played
A[E7]n old country song
About steel [F#m]guitars
And how he'll [D]try his level best
To get [A]along
In the same old [E7]bar
Though friends [F#m]gone wrong
D E [one strum, let ring]
well he once had love but I never got that far
[no cbord] A
she must have angels on her shoulders
t[E]heir light wherever she may b[A]e
s[E]he says the angels do not kno[A]w her
[E]I guess I'm the [D]only one who s[A]ees.
So I got my d[A]rink
[E7]And my fix my rose
But I need much [F#m]more
Then this p[D]owderedblue and rented t[A]uxedo
I need a [E7]line
A-something she d[F#m]on't know
D E [ring]
Coz' she's probably heard them all a thousand times
So I caught her e[A]ye
For the next s[E7]ong
And the waltz r[F#m]eplaced
the tango l[D]ike she knows that I don't [A]belong
In these s[E7]hoes
I feel all wr[F#m]ong
D E [ring]
But that's just my pride, what have I got to lose?
[Barmonica solo over verse cbords] 
Well last call c[A]alled
But I didn't he[E7]ar
I was too busy loo[F#m]king
At h[D]er across the remnants of my [A]beer
she stood to l[E7]eave
and then it all came [F#m]clear
D E [ring]
that life without her was all I had to fear
[no cbord] A
You must have angels on your shoulders
T[E]heir light wherever you may b[A]e
S[E]he asks me would I like to sh[A]ow her?
I[E] think I might be j[D]ust the guy you n[A]eed.
