Hall of Angels
K. Kristofferson
Album: Closer to the Bone
Tabbed 8/17/10



We stayed at the barroom 'til closin'
  D                        A
I held down a place at his side
And drank to the memory that crushed him
  B7                     E
A lady who loved him and died
He purely could not find a reason
   D                     A
To get it back up and go on
     D                       A
Then out of the dark came a stranger
E                       A
Turned us around with a song

He said I know the pain that you're feelin'
I had a sweet little girl
And I loved her more than her mother
Or anything else in the word
Sure as I loved her I lost her
Sure as I wanted to die
Then I had a dream or a vision
Of wonders that opened my eyes

I dreamed of a young band of angels
      E                         A
That shone like the stars from above
But each held a bright candle
B7                     E
Except for the angel I loved
And I asked why their candles were burnin' 
    E                        A
And why that hers wasn't the same
            D                    A
She said oh daddy each time that I try to light it
     B7                           D              A
Your tears just keep drownin' the flame

We stared at the stranger in silence
His spirit was truly alive
If life had made his eyes glisten
The diamond was bright in his eyes
'Cause everyone who ever loved him
Though fortune had torn them apart
Lived in the hall of the angels
As long as the love in his heart

           D                        A
Oh they'll live in the hall of the angels
   E                        A       E    A
As long as the love in your heart
