Angel Eyes Lyrics
Try to think that love’s not around
But it’s uncomfortably near
My old heart ain’t gaining no ground
Because my angel eyes ain’t here
Angel eyes, that old devil sent
They glow unbearably bright
Need I say that my love’s misspent
Mispent with angel eyes tonight
So drink up all you people
Order anything you see
Have fun you, happy people
The drinks and the laughs are on me
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact’s uncommonly clear
Got to find who’s now number one
And why my angel eyes ain’t here
Excuse me while I disappear
Angel Eyes is a jazz standard in the minor blues format. Using a walking bass, you should play this song differently every time by improvising the bass line.
If you have practiced your chords in every position you can easily add them, no matter where your walking bass leads you.
