Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground
by Willie Nelson



If you had not have fallen,
then I would not have found you
Angel flying too close --- to the ground.

I -- patched up your broken wing ---
and hung around a while,
trying to keep your spirits up,
and your fever down.

I knew someday ---
that you would fly away,
for love's the greatest healer --- to be found.

So leav e me if you need to,
I -- will still remember
Angel flying too close --- to the ground

(guitar solo)

Fly on --- fly on past -- the speed of sound
I'd rather see -- you up,
than see -- you down.

So leave me if you need to,
I -- will still remember
Angel flying too close --- to the ground.

Leave me if you need to,
I -- will still remember
Angel flying too close --- to the ground.
