Intro

A Fm Bm E A A

There's an angel on the stFmairs

Bm

When the lights go up, And the sEun has nearly gone down. ADid you see him on the strFmeet? Did you pass him at your fBmeet? Did you think aloud, "how dare they even looEk me in the eye'? DAnd he loves the girls. EAnd he loves the boys. BmGoing to make twenty dDollars before the wEeekends over. ASo set him up, Fm Let him fall. Bm Turn him oEver in your haDnds. AGod save the FmKing of New OrleanDs.

A

Got a ticket to a show. Fm Going to see him take a blow. Bm When the drunk one said, "Cat Stevens was tEhe greatest singer!"

A

And did you kick him in the headFm? Did you see the blood run down?Bm Did you laugh at all when the people walkedE right by and said alDoud, "You gutter puEnks are all the same. Bm"Probably make twenty doDllars 'fore the weeEkends over."? ASo set him up, Fm Let him fall. Bm Turn him oEver in your haDnds. AGod save the FmKing of New OrleanDs.
