[Verse 1]
F       C              G
  Angel came down from heaven yesterday
A#                   D#                   F
  She stayed with me just long enough for afternoon tea
F         C         G
  And she told me a story yesterday,
A#                           D#           F    
  about the love between the moon and the deep blue sea
    G                           A#
And when it was time for her to go,
she spread her wings high over me
        G       A              A#       B    
And she said "I shall return tomorrow"

            E      B        F#
And I said "fly on my sweet angel,
C   A  D       B   E
fly on through the sky,
E      B        F#
fly on my sweet angel,
C    A        D   B     E
I'll wait for you by my side"
  E     F#    
  A  B  C#    
[Verse 2]
F#             C#         G#
  And sure enough this morning comes to me
B                         E                             F#
  When silver wings silhouetted against the glow of the child's sunrise
F#           C#                    G#
  And as the bluebirds and the sparrows envy me,
B                                  E 
  she says "I love you little boy
and today you shall fly"
She kissed me once
B                     F#
  and the feelings so good she made me cry
    G#          A#    B       E
And now, we can fly together

            E      B        F#
And I said "fly on my sweet angel,
C   A  D       B   E
fly on through the sky,
E      B        F#
fly on my sweet angel,
  C      A        D      B  E
together we shall always be high"
C     A    D    B    E
Mmm - mm - mm - mm - mmm...

About the artist behind Angel Acoustic:

Jimi Hendrix (November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter whose guitar playing was influential on rock music.[1] After initial success in Europe, he achieved fame in the USA following his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. Later, Hendrix headlined the iconic 1969 Woodstock Festival.

Hendrix helped develop the technique of guitar feedback with overdriven amplifiers.[2] He was influenced by blues artists such as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Albert King, and Elmore James,[3][4][5][6] rhythm and blues and soul guitarists Curtis Mayfield, Steve Cropper, as well as by some modern jazz.[7]

Carlos Santana has suggested that Hendrix's music may have been influenced by his Native American heritage.[8] As a record producer, Hendrix also broke new ground in using the recording studio as an extension of his musical ideas; he was one of the first to experiment with stereophonic and phasing effects during recording.

Hendrix won many of the most prestigious rock music awards in his lifetime and has been posthumously awarded many more, including being inducted into the USA's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. An English Heritage "Blue plaque" was erected in his name on his former residence at Brook Street, London in September 1997 and his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (at 6627 Hollywood Blvd.) was dedicated in 1994. In 2006, his debut USA album, Are You Experienced, was inducted into the United States National Recording Registry and Rolling Stone named Hendrix the best guitarist on their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003.[9]
