Capo 2nd fret D+11/A C/G G The paper hits the front porch as the newsboy's out there makin' his early rounds, D+11/A C/G G And when he's gone, the silence creeps back in with quiet summer morning sounds. C G You roll onto your other side; you smile as if a new dream's comin' through. D+11/A C/G G It's just me and a couple of angels, baby, watchin' over you.
I love to see you sleepin', baby, love to see you get the rest you need.
And nothing's gonna bother you, your peace and quiet's triple-guaranteed.
So walk on down your Sunday street, look around, 'cause we'll be walkin' too.
You've got me and a couple of angels, baby, watchin' over you.
C G We're over here at the side of the road you're travelin'. C G We're here to see your path is trouble-free. C G May your dreams be everything you need your dreams to be, D+11/A And when you wake, may mine be the first face you see. G C/G G Now the sun is up and shinin', so I pull the shades to keep the light at bay, D+11/A C/G G To stretch your night out longer till you're rested and you're ready for your day. C G We're here because we love you, and to love you well is all we want to do. D+11/A C/G G So it's me and a couple of angels, baby, watchin' over you. D+11/A C/G G You got me and a couple of angels, baby, watchin' over you.
