Angel Flying too Close to the Ground
written and performed by Willie Nelson

(explanations for parenthetical notation at end)

  A               C#m(4)
If you had not have fallen
     D               A
then I would not have found you
D                 E            A
Angel flying too close to the ground
A              C#m(4)          D              A(5)
I patched up your broken wing and hung around for a while
B                                     E
trying to keep your spirits up and your fever down
   A            C#m(4)   D          D#dim
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
A                 E            A
Angel flying too close to the ground.

  A     C#m(4)                 D
I knew someday that you would fly away
     B7                               E
for loveUs the greatest healer to be found
   A            C#m(4)   D          D#dim
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
A                E            A
Angel flying too close to the ground

A          C#m(4)             D
Fly on fly on past, the speed of sound
  B7                               E
IUd rather see you up than see you down
   A            C#m(4)   D          D#dim
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
A                 E            D       A
Angel flying too close to the ground.

The numbers in parenthesis indicate to barre the chord on that fret.
For example A(5) means to play an E chord barred on the 5th fret.
C#m(4) means to play an Am chord barred on the 4th fret.
D(2) means to play a C chord barred on the 2nd fret.
No parenthesis means to play the chord in the typical open string position.
If youUre not comfortable with barre chords, the song sound fine without
D#dim is played by xx1212.
Willie likes to add lots of bass runs like C# C D (on the A string)
between the C#m and D chords
and E F# G# A (on the E string) with a triplet feel on each note
between the E and A(5) chords or the A and A(5) chords
