A  E7  F#m  D...

                 A
She walked right in
             E7
As time slowed down
           F#m
But not enough
          D    
To keep me from ordering up
            A
Another round
                E7
In a bottomless cup
           F#m
That I had found
         D
In the hopes of never waking up the
 A
Jukebox played
 E7      
An old country song 
            F#m
About steel guitars
              D
And how he'll try his level best
       A
To get along
                E7
In the same old bar
               F#m
Though friends gone wrong
        D                                  E [one strum, let ring]
well he once had love but I never got that far

[Chorus]
[no chord]                    A 
she must have angels on her shoulders
 E                            A
their light wherever she may be
 E                            A
she says the angels do not know her
E               D             A
I guess I'm the only one who sees.


             A
So I got my drink
E7
And my fix my rose
                F#m
But I need much more
           D                       A
Then this powderedblue and rented tuxedo
         E7
I need a line
                 F#m
A-something she don't know 
             D                                 E [ring]
Coz' she's probably heard them all a thousand times
                 A
So I caught her eye
              E7
For the next song
               F#m
And the waltz replaced
           D                          A
the tango like she knows that I don't belong
          E7
In these shoes
             F#m
I feel all wrong
             D                               E [ring]
But that's just my pride, what have I got to lose?

[Chorus]
[Harmonica solo over verse chords]

                A
Well last call called
               E7
But I didn't hear 
                  F#m
I was too busy looking
    D                            A
At her across the remnants of my beer
              E7
she stood to leave
                     F#m
and then it all came clear
      D                                E [ring]
that life without her was all I had to fear

[no chord]                      A
You must have angels on your shoulders
 E                            A
Their light wherever you may be
 E                            A
She asks me would I like to show her?
 E                  D                A
I think I might be just the guy you need.
