Angie

G C/G G Angie, from where I stand, C/G G The water breaks on a spit of sand, D7/F# How does it survive? Angie, for all I know, The sand is tired and ready to go, G D7/F# It's less than alive.
Em But you, so ready to leave, D7/F# The first trembling leaf to break loose in the fall. Angie, so ready to fly, Is there time to ask why? G D7/F# Is there no time at all? Em Am Or, is there nothing hidden I can blame? D G Angie, if Angie's your name.

Angie, from where I stand,
Your smile is so discreetly planned,
I'm not sure it's there.
Angie, for all I know,
You'll notice me; you'll turn and go.
You won't even care.

That's you, so ready to leave,
The first trembling leaf to break loose in the fall.
Angie, so ready to fly,
Is there time to ask why?
Is there no time at all?
Or, is there nothing hidden I can blame?
Angie, if Angie's your name
.


Em Angie, I was getting along; G Nothing quite right, but nothing too wrong; D7/F# I didn't know you existed. Ran my life like a safe machine, Lost myself in a safe routine, G D7/F# Em But now it's all twisted. Am With my hand on the knife G For the rest of my life.

Angie, from where I stand,
You rise and wave an ungloved hand;
You smile in the sun.
Angie, you smile for him;
He calls to you; the light is dim.
You break into a run.

And you're gone, so ready to leave,
The first trembling leaf to break loose in the fall.
Angie, so ready to fly,
Is there time to ask why?
Is there no time at all?
Or, is there nothing hidden I can blame?
Angie, if Angie's your name.
Angie, if Angie's your name
.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1969)
