Concrete Angel - Martina McBride
Album: Greatist Hits
Writers: Stephanie Bentley/Rob Crosby

**Capo 1**

Intro: C  G/B  Am7  G 
       C  G/B  Am7  

C             G/B             Am7       G
She walks to school with the lunch she packed
C       G/B              Am7     G
Nobody knows what she's holdin' back
C           G/B              Am7       G
Wearin' the same dress she wore yesterday
C             G/B           Am7       G      C  G/B  Am7  G
She hides the bruises with linen and lace, ooh

C           G/B            Am7       G
The teacher wonders but she doesn't ask
C            G/B             Am7      G
It's hard to see the pain behind the mask
C           G/B         Am7     G
Bearing the burden of a secret storm
C             G/B             Am7   G
Sometimes she wishes she was never born

             C            G
Through the wind and the rain
            Am         G
She stands hard as a stone
      C              G           Am   
In a world that she can't rise above
 G        C              G
But her dreams give her wings
         Am         G                 C
And she flies to a place where she's loved
Concrete angel

C  G/B  Am7  G 
C  G/B  Am7  

C         G/B          Am7           G
Somebody cries in the middle of the night
C             G/B            Am7           G
The neighbors hear, but they turn out the lights
C          G/B                Am7      G
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate
C             G/B        Am7      G
When morning comes it'll be too late


Solo: C  G/B  Am7  G 
      C  G/B  Am7  

C         G/B         Am7     G
A statue stands in a shaded place
C        G/B          Am7       G
An angel girl with an upturned face
C          G/B          Am7      G
A name is written on a polished rock
C         G/B           Am7       G
A broken heart that the world forgot


Outro: C  G/B  Am7  G

Ah, wonderful job. I have an aunt who is
pretty abusive to her son, and is open to
giving him a beating in public, but yet
when my sisters, mom and I made her watch
the video for it, my aunt cringed and said,
"I can't understand why people do things
like that." Thank you for the great chords,
'cause now when hse is over, I can play the
