Sweet Angeline

Ian Hunter

Intro
&G G G G
&G G G G
&G C G C
&G C D
Oh Angeline, I love you, your mouth is like a sting
& Em Bm C D
and when I close my eyes each night, I often hear you sing
&G C D
Imagination's hidden book, you wrote it on the wing
& Em Bm C D
And when I vowed to comfort you, well you swallowed everything
&G C G
Angeline, oh my Angeline
&C G Am D
My Sweet Angeline - you have rendered me unseen
&Em C D G C
I would cry a million smiles for my Indian City queen
&G C D
Well your body it is broken in so many different ways
& Em Bm C D
And when I stoop to find your head, well it disappeared in haze.
& G C D
your blood flows like the finest juice - the kiss of burgundy
& Em Bm C D
and where it comes from no one knows, but where it's going I can't see
&G C G
Angeline, oh my Angeline
&C G Am D
My Sweet Angeline - (y'know) you have rendered me unseen
&Em C D G C
I would cry a million smiles for my Indian City queen
Guitar Solo:
&G C G C
&G C D Em Bm C D
&G C D Em Bm C D
&G C G
Angeline, oh my Angeline
&C G Am D
You little Angeline - you have rendered me unseen
&Em C D G C
I would cry a million smiles for my Indian City queen
&G C D
And your crystal-coloured cardboard bins - attack me from the paint
& Em Bm C D
and I think that I am getting lost among the swollen states
&G C D
oh rescue me or bury me, for I care not what you do
& Em Bm C D
there is just one thing that I want to say am I really you
&G C G
Angeline, oh my Angeline
&C G Am D
My Sweet Angeline - you have rendered me unseen
&Em C D G C
I would cry a million smiles for my Indian City queen
