Homeward Looking Angel

	  		G   G   F   F   G   G   F   F 
{intro} 
  
G                            G      F                   F 
  She saw the ragged edge of nowhere from a fast moving train 
G                       G            F           F 
  Watched the scenery fly by with a fever in her brain 
Em              Em                     A7                  A7 
  Seemed like a good time at the time, rolling down that track 
Em               Em                A7               A7 
  Now the only thing she wants is a one-way ticket back 
  
       D                  Bm            D                Bm 
SheUs a homeward looking angel and she's feeling mighty tired 
    D               Bm              G             Bm 
Her party dress is tattered but her vision is inspired 
          D                        Bm               D                 Bm 
And that girl looking back in the mirror, lord, made such a mess of things 
           D              Bm             G                 A 
And she's leaving in the morning soon as she can find her wings 
                 G             G       F       F 
Soon as she can find her wings, oh oh ohh-ohhh 
G   G   F   F 
{instrumental; see tab at end for one riff} 
  
She's so very hungry for a piece of Mama's pie 
Served up on Grandma's china after church on Sunday night 
Oh, now Papa's probably turning out the lights and heading up the stairs 
And the wayward child he never talks about still turns up in his prayers 
  
She's a homeward looking angel and she must be feeling mighty tired 
Her party dress is tattered but her vision is inspired 
And that girl looking back in the mirror, lord, made such a mess of things 
And she's leaving in the morning soon as she can find her wings 
  
       C    D    G    A    A 
Oh, yeah... {instrumental} 
          F                F 
There's a road ahead and a road behind 
G                  A             A 
All roads lead to home this time 
  
She's a homeward looking angel and she's feeling mighty tired 
She went gunning for glory but her bullets all misfired 
And that girl looking back in the mirror, lord, made such a mess of things 
And she's leaving in the morning soon as she can find her wings 
Soon as she can find her wings, oh oh ohh-ohhh 
Homeward looking angel
