The angel rides with hunch-backed children
C      G Em   C        D
Poison oozing from his engine
C          G  Em   C      D
Wielding love as a lethal weapon
C      G   C         D
On his way to hubcap heaven

Baseball cards poked in his spokes
C            G   Em   C         D
His boots in oil he's patiently soaked

The roadside attendant nervously jokes

As the angel's tires strokes his precious pavement

Well the interstate's choked With nomadic hordes 
   C          G              Em             C              D      Dsus4  D
In Volkswagen vans With full running boards dragging great anchors

Followin' dead-end signs the sores

The angel rides by humpin' his hunk metal whore

Madison Avenue's claim to fame in a trainer bra with eyes like rain

She rubs against the weather-beaten frame and asks the angel for his name

C          G        Em  C      D
Off in the distance the marble dome 
C                   G                Em         C        D
Reflects across the flatlands with a naked feel off into parts unknown
    C     G       Em  C        D
The woman strokes his polished chrome
    C      G    Em          D
And lies beside the angel's bones

About the artist behind Angel:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
