Basic chords, try to keep the top E ringing and have fun with it.

Jimi played a semi-tone down, so when listening to original may sound out of tune with these chords.

F#	C#		   Abm		
Angel came down from heaven yesterday

About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea

B	C	C#		D 	F#	F#sus4/F#
And then she spread her wings high over me

F#		Abm	Bbm	     B		Bsus4/B
She said she’s gonna come back tomorrow		 And I said

E		    F#m
Fly on my sweet angel

Tomorrow I’m gonna be by your side

Silver wings silhouetted against a childs sunrise

F#    	C#		   	 Abm		
And my angel she said unto me

And then she took me high over yonder

a.) the lyrics are wrong
b.) You try to add extra beats each measure
c.) get your ear training together before you post.

^ These chords are fine - they play along perfectly with the record.

And who cares if the lyrics are wrong?

The lyrics are fine they are the same as on the First Rays of the New Rising Sun album. (I'm guessing it's just a reissue of the original song)
The acoustic version of the song has different lyrics though.
