I am still trying to trace the lyrics to Angie by Tom Paxton. I know that it was on an early double LP called 'The Compleat Tom Paxton.' I think it started 'Angie, from where I stand the water breaks on a spit of sand . . .'

Thanks for your offer of transcribing it Tiger. I would be very grateful if you would.

I think it is also on an album Tom did with The Iron Man on it. So s Bishop Cody's Last Request, Wish I had A troubadour, and About The Children.

All that I remember is

And you, so ready to leave
The first trembling leaf to break loose in the fall
Angie, so ready to die, is there time to ask why
Is there no time at all?
Or is there nothing hidden I can blame?
Angie, if Angie's your name

And then bits and pieces of other lines. I have the double album, but no turntable!! Beautiful song. Good luck finding the rest of the words.

Aloha,
Mark

Blacksmith.....

The lyrics have been posted under a new "Lyr Add" thread. I'll tell ya, this is a tough job, having to listen to Paxton songs, but nobody asks for Steppenwolf.

Enjoy.

ANGIE

Tom Paxton

Angie, from where I stand,
The water breaks some spit of sand,
How does it survive?
Angie, for all I know,
The sand is tired and ready to go,
It's less than alive.

CHORUS
But you're so ready to leave,
The first trembling leaf to break loose in the Fall.
Angie, so ready to fly,
Is it time to ask why?
Is there no time at all?
Or, is there nothing hidden I can blame
Angie, if Angie's your name?
Angie, from where I stand,
Your smile is so discreetly planned,
I'm not sure it's there.
Angie, for all I know,
You'll notice me, then turn and go,
You won't even care


CHORUS
That you're so ready to leave, . . .
BRIDGE
Angie, I was getting along
Nothing quite right and nothing too wrong,
I didn't know you existed.
Ran my life like a safe machine,
Lost myself in a safe routine,
But now it's all twisted, with my hand on the knife
For the rest of my life.

Angie, from where I stand,
You rise and wave an ungloved hand,
You smile in the sun.
Angie, you smile for him,
He calls to you when light is dim,
Break into a run . . .


CHORUS
And you've grown so ready to leave, . . .

I posted the complete lyrics for The Iron Man some time ago, though it doesn't appear to be in the links above. It can be found at Lyr Req:The iron man.

The song was first released as a part of the 15-minute "Iron Man" in 1969 on "Things I Noticed Now", later released on the live double LP "The Compleat Paxton" in 1970, and re-recorded for the 1976 LP "Saturday Night"

Oh Gosh, all the "D7/F"s should be "D7/F#"... What a stupid mistake I've made!
