Farewell Angelina chords
Joan Baez (Bob Dylan)

Capo II


Farewell Angelina
    F            C
The bells of the crown
          F         C
Are being stolen by bandits
       F          C
I must follow the sound

The triangle tingles
        F            G
And the trumpet play slow
    Am       Em
Farewell Angelina
    Am        Em
The sky is on fire
F          C
And I must go.

There's no need for anger
        F           C   
There's no need for blame
        F          C
There's nothing to prove
     F                 C   
Ev'rything's still the same

Just a table standing empty
       F           G
By the edge of the sea
    Am       Em
Farewell Angelina
    Am     Em
The sky is trembling
F          C
And I must leave.

The jacks and queens
        F              C
Have forsaken the courtyard
F         C
Fifty-two gypsies
    F             C
Now file past the guards

In the space where the deuce
        F            G
And the ace once ran wild
    Am       Em
Farewell Angelina
    Am     Em
The sky is folding
     F            C
I'll see you in a while.

See the cross-eyed pirates sitting
F              C
Perched in the sun

Shooting tin cans
       F         C
With a sawed-off shotgun

And the neighbors they clap
         F               G
And they cheer with each blast
    Am       Em
Farewell Angelina
    Am             Em
The sky's changing color
    F            C
And I must leave fast.

King Kong, little elves
       F             C
On the rooftops they dance

Valentino-type tangos
          F             C
While the make-up man's hands

Shut the eyes of the dead
         F         G
Not to embarrass anyone
    Am       Em
Farewell Angelina
    Am       Em
The sky is embarrassed
    F        C
And I must be gone.

The machine guns are roaring
    F             C
The puppets heave rocks

The fiends nail time bombs
       F            C
To the hands of the clocks

Call me any name you like
       F       G
I will never deny it
    Am       Em
Farewell Angelina
    Am      Em
The sky is erupting
       F             C
I must go where it's quiet.

In some verses, Joan Baez has played a C7 on the second measure of the second half of the verse. Ex. 'The triangle tingles', 'Just a table standing empty', 'In the space where the deuce', etc. The C7 lands on 'tingles', 'empty', and 'deuce' in these examples. I think it adds a nice feeling of development and movement, to be used occasionally.

Lack of formatting. Lack of accuracy. Some chords are at the wrong position, for example line 3 and four. Also the obvious C7 is missing. Plus putting the chords in all lines is much more convenient for the user.
