Angie
(Tom Paxton)

G          (C/G)    G
Angie, from where I stand,
                      (C/G)   G
The water breaks on a spit of sand,
D7/F
How does it survive?

Angie, for all I know,

The sand is tired and ready to go,
    G                            (D7/F)
It's less than alive.


    Em
But you're so ready to leave,
                                              Am
The first trembling leaf to break loose in the Fall.
D7/F
Angie, so ready to fly,

Is there time to ask why?
                   G                      (D7/F)
Is there no time at all?
Em                               Am
Or, is there nothing hidden I can blame?
D                      G
Angie, if Angie's your name.


G          (C/G)    G
Angie, from where I stand,
                   (C/G)    G
Your smile is so discreetly planned,
D7/F
I'm not sure it's there.

Angie, for all I know,

You'll notice me; you'll turn and go.
    G                            (D7/F)
You won't even care.


       Em
That's you, so ready to leave,
                                              Am
The first trembling leaf to break loose in the Fall.
D7/F
Angie, so ready to fly,

Is there time to ask why?
                   G                      (D7/F)
Is there no time at all?
Em                               Am
Or, is there nothing hidden I can blame?
D                      G                      (D7/F)
Angie, if Angie's your name.


Em
Angie, I was getting along;
G
Nothing quite right, but nothing too wrong;
         D7/F
I didn't know you existed.
Am
Ran my life like a safe machine;
D7/F
Lost myself in a safe routine;
    G
But now it's all twisted.
                   Am
With my hand on the knife
                   G
For the rest of my life.


          (C/G)    G
Angie, from where I stand,
                   (C/G)    G
You rise and wave an ungloved hand;
    D7/F
You smile in the sun.

Angie, you smile for him;

He calls to you; the light is dim.
    G                            (D7/F)
You break into a run.


          Em
And you're gone, so ready to leave,
                                              Am
The first trembling leaf to break loose in the Fall.
D7/F
Angie, so ready to fly,

Is there time to ask why?
                   G                      (D7/F)
Is there no time at all?
Em                               Am
Or, is there nothing hidden I can blame?
D                      G                  
Angie, if Angie's your name.
D                      G                  
Angie, if Angie's your name.

Lyrics verified according to the recording on Tom's 1976 album "Saturday Night".
