Angel's Blues
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Anders Parker and Jay Farrar

Two girls just give me a fountain pen
I think that’s mighty nice
Reminds me of the joke where the girl
Give her daddy then pen about twice.

I like the way she looks
Walks, talks, works, and lays,
I got in trouble over her,
And I’m I’m laying out days.

If you must leave me, if you must leave me here
If you must leave me, if you must leave me here
Just leave a cigarette butt, leave a dime for beer.

There’s a doctor on my corner
Great big fat man awful stout
He makes me give him money
Just to take my baby out.

I woke up every morning
With my woman in my arms
Good girl built like a government mule
And I’d not do her no harm.

The women know me everywhere I land
The women know me everywhere I land
I got more little angels, than you’ll find in the promised land.

I’d like to have you around me
To wake me up every day
But when my main line comes back home
I wonder what she’ll say

I got a reputation babe, from coast to coast,
I don’t have to tell you no lies
I don’t have to lie nor boast

The women know me everywhere I land
The women know me everywhere I land
I got more little angels, than you’ll find in the promised land.
I got more little angels, than you’ll find in the promised land.
I got more little angels, than you’ll find in the promised land.
