Farewell Angelina
Written by: Bob Dylan & Revised by John Mellencamp
Performed: John Mellencamp

G                      C            G
Farewell Angelina, the bells of the crown
G                        C                 G
Being stolen by bandits, I must follow the sound
G                              C              D
Well the triangles tingle, the trumpets plays slow
       Em     Esus4        Em      Esus4      C       G      C  G  C  G
Say farewell Angelina, the sky is on fire, and I must go

G                                   C           G
There?s no need for anger,  there's no need for blame
G                                    C          G
There?s nothing to prove, Everything?s still the same
G                                    C           D
Just the table standing empty by the edge of the sea
       Em    Esus4         Em   Esus4           C         G      C G C G
Say farewell Angelina, the sky's trembling, and I must leave


G                                C            G
Well the jack and the queen have forsaken the courtyard
G                     C            G
Fifty-two gypsies now file past the guard
G                                    C            D
In the space where the deuce and the ace once ran wild
     Em    Esus4       Em     Esus4         C            G       C G C G
Farewell Angelina, the sky is folding, I'll see you in a while


G                             C              G
See the cross-eyed pirate sit perched in the sun
G                        C             G
Shooting tin cans with a sawed-off shotgun
G                          C               D
And the neighbors clap and cheer with each blast
       Em     Esus4        Em       Esus4              C            D    C D C D
But farewell Angelina, the sky is changing colour, and I must leave fast


G                             C             G
King Kong little elves in the rooftops they dance
G                               C            G
Valentino-type tangos while the make-up mans hands
G                                C            D
Shut the eyes of the dead not to embarrass anyone
       Em      Esus4        Em      Esus4           C         G        C G C G
Says Farewell Angelina, the sky is embarrassed, and I must be gone


G                          C             G
Well machine guns roaring, puppets heave rocks
G                                       C         G
While the fiends nail time bombs to the hands of clocks
G                          C                 D
Call me anything you like, I will never deny it
Em          Esus4      Em      Esus4        C                       G     C G C G
Farewell Angelina, the sky is erupting, and I must go where it's quiet

This is pretty close but there are a few things wrong and few things that would make it better.

First off use Bm instead of Esus4. It is harder to finger but sounds much better. Esus4 is close if you can't get the Bm - but try to.

The C to G tag-on is only after the 2nd and 4th verse - not every verse as indicated. The 4th verse tag on is not C to D it is C to G.
There are a few lyric mistakes but nothing serious.
Lastly - The mans name is John Mellencamp not John Cougar Mellencamp. :)

One last suggestion - use Cadd9 for the C and maybe Dsus2 for the D.

This is a great version of this song and easy to play.
Enjoy!
