Subject: Chords: Angel Of Mercy by Dire Straits

Angel of Mercy, written by Mark Knopfler, performed by Dire Straits
The song can be found on the album "Communiqu?"
I think that this is a really great song, but it's not one of their
most famous hits. Anyway, hope this helps.

Verse 1
-------
               E         D     C
Well there's a Peter Pan moon, shepherd's delight
          E         D             C
I got the dragon at noon, yes and I won the fight
      E          C       C
Now I want my reward, in heaven tonight
              D
Just like you promised
E           D          C
Angel of mercy, you'll come to no harm
E          D               C
Angel of mercy, there's no need for alarm
    E              D              C
The knight in his armour, wants a night in your arms
              D
You know he's honest

Chorus
------
 C               G
Angel of mercy, angel delight
D                    G
Give me my reward in heaven tonight
         C                          G
And if I give up my sword won't you give me the right
       D
Sweet angel

Verse 2
-------
              E            D              C
Well now it's too late for talking we can talk later on
        E         D                C
Let the saxophone play us 'til the chorus of dawn
      E         D         C
All I need is a little oblivion
                      D
And you don't need protection
         E             D          C
Well now here come the moonlight, down on your bed
E        D              C
Angel of mercy let your heart rule your head
  E               D        C
I don't want your money, I want you instead
             D
Don't need rejection, yeah

Chorus
------
     C               G
Oh angel of mercy, angel delight
D                    G
Give me my reward in heaven tonight
         C                          G
And if I give up my sword won't you give me the right
  D                    G
Angel of mercy give me heaven tonight

Bridge
------
            D
Well if you cross your heart and spit
                                 G
And swear upon the grave of your mother
          D
You gotta, get into it
                                    C          D
Gotta tell her that I'm more than a lover

         C                          G
And if I give up my sword won't you give me the right
  D                    G
Angel of mercy give me heaven tonight
