Angel and Delilah

Angel and Delilah

Eliza Gilkyson

 

Am Dm E G

 

Am

Delilah says to her Angel

Am

There’s three of us at the wheel

Dm  E                     Am

Me, you, and your death wish

Am

It’s a love triangle,

Am

It’s a dangerous deal,

Dm  E                     Am

Me, you, and your death wish

Dm

He’s had a hard road to travel,

Am

He’s got old memories to lose,

Dm

Can we go out into the desert

Am

where he can’t  find us

Dm

It’s like Amboy  at midnight

Am

A ghost town with the blues

Dm                                                 Am

I can hear his bootheels crunching in the gravel behind us

G

I love the feel of your sorrow

Am

The scars on your skin

G

We can heal by tomorrow

Am

If love will take us in

Dm    E                           Am

But it won’t take in your deathwish

Delilah says to her Angel

Kick him out of the car

Drop him off at a truckstop

in Pomona

Set him up with a stranger

Set him up at a bar

By the time he figures it out

we’ll be in Arizona

I love the feel of your sorrow

The scars on your skin

We can heal by tomorrow

If love will take us in

G

But it won’t take in

Am

Your…

Deathwish

solo

Am

Angel says to Delilah

Am

Well you know you might be right

E

But I feel just like I’m dying

Am

with you holding me so tight

So drop us off at the train yard

Drive on through the night

You’ll be deep in the desert

by dawns early light

I love the feel of your sorrow

The scars on your skin

But I’ll be gone tomorrow

If love shouldl take us in

But it won’t take in

My Deathwish

Oh no it won’t take in

My death wish
