C

F                             C
Well it's always been my nature to take chances
G                                    C
 My right hand drawing back while my left hand advances
F                                           C
 Where the current is strong and the monkey dances
       G
To the tune of a concertina

F                                 C
Blood drying in my yellow hair as I go from shore to shore
G                          C
I know what it is that has drawn me to your door
F                                   C
But what ever could it be makes you think you've seen me before
       G
Angelina

F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina
F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina

F                       C
His eyes were two slits make any snake proud
G                                              C
With a face that any painter would paint as he walked through the crowd
F                                           C
Worshipping a god with the body of a woman well endowed
        G
And the head of a hyena

F                         C
Do I need your permission to turn the other cheek
G                        C
If you can read my mind, why must I speak?
F                                  C
No, I have heard nothing about the man that you seek
       G
Angelina

F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina
F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina

F                             C
In the valley of the giants where the stars and stripes explode
G                                    C
The peaches they were sweet and the milk and honey flowed
F                                 C
I was only following instructions when the judge sent me down the road
          G
With your subpoena

F                       C
When you cease to exist then who will you blame?
G                                     C
I've tried my best to love you, but I cannot play this game
F                                      C
Your best friend and my worst enemy is one and the same
       G
Angelina

F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina
F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina

F                                C
There's a black Mercedes rolling through the combat zone
G                                   C
Your servants are half dead, you're down to the bone
F                                         C
Tell me tall man, where would you like to be overthrown?
       G
In Jerusalem or Argentina?

F                                           C
She was stolen from her mother when she was three days old
G                                            C
Now her vengeance has been satisfied and her possessions have been sold
F                                         C
He's surrounded by God's angels and she's wearing a blindfold
             G
But so are you, Angelina

F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina
F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina

F                             C
I see pieces of men marching, tryin' to take heaven by force
G                            C
I can see the unknown rider, I can see the pale white horse
F                                                      C
In God's truth, name, tell me what you want and you'll have it of course
                   G
Just step into the arena

F                              C
Beat a path of retreat up them spiral staircases
G                                C
Pass the tree of smoke, pass the angel with four faces
F                         C
Begging god for mercy and weeping in unholy places
       G
Angelina

F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina
F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina
F     C       G 
 Oooh-oh, Angelina
