[Intro]
C   Dm  F   C
C   Dm  F   C
C


[Verse 1]
C                   Dm
Sun came up it was another day
        F                       C
And the sun went down, you were blown away
Dm                    F
Why did you let go of your guitar
Dm                      F
Why did you ever let it go that far
        C
Drunken angel
C                      Dm
Coulda held on to that long smooth neck
F                     C
Let your hand remember every fret
Dm                    F
Fingers touching each shiny string
    Dm            F
But you let go of everything
        C
Drunken angel


[Chorus]
        Dm
Drunken angel
F             C
You're on the other side
        Dm
Drunken angel
F             C
You're on the other side


[Verse 2]
C               Dm
Followers would cling to you
F                   C
Hang around just to meet you
Dm               F
Some threw roses at your feet
Dm                     F
And watch you pass out on the street
        C
Drunken angel
C                    Dm
Feed you and pay off all your debts
F               C
Kiss your brow, taste your sweat
Dm               F
Write about your soul, your guts
Dm                F
Criticise you and wish you luck
        C
Drunken angel


[Chorus]
        Dm
Drunken angel
F             C
You're on the other side
        Dm
Drunken angel
F             C
You're on the other side


[Break]
C   Dm  F   C
Dm  F   Dm  F

[Verse 3]
C                    Dm
Some kind of saviour singing the blues
  F                C
A derelict in your duct tape shoes
     Dm                      F
Your orphan clothes and your long dark hair
Dm               F
Looking like you didn't care
        C
Drunken angel
C                          Dm
Blood spilled out from the hole in your heart
F                   C
Over the strings of your guitar
    Dm               F
The worn down places in the wood
     Dm                F
That once had made you feel so good
        C
Drunken angel


[Chorus]
        Dm
Drunken angel
F             C
You're on the other side
        Dm
Drunken angel
F             C
You're on the other side


[Verse 4]
C                   Dm
Sun came up it was another day
        F                       C
And the sun went down, you were blown away
Dm                  F
Why'd you let go of your guitar
Dm                    F
Why'd you ever let it go that far
        C
Drunken angel
        C
Drunken angel

Thanks for the comment, and that works too, though Lucinda plays it Capo 2 :)
