                   G
I thought I'd go up Poughkeepsie,
         C 
look out o'er the Hudson,
              G                                         D
and I'd throw my body down on the river.
               G
And I'd know no more sorrow,
      C
I'd fly like the sparrow
              G                                   D          G
and I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.

             D                              C          G
I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
       D                           C          G
I'd take to the sky with all my might.
 G
No more drowning in my sorrow,
 G                                      C
no more drowning in my fright,
             G                                     D         G
I'd just ride on the backs of the angels tonight.

                  G    
There are those who know sorrow
         C
and those who must borrow
          G                                    D
and those whose lot in life is sweet.
               G
Well I'm drunk on self-pity,
              C
scorned all that's been given me,
               G                                        D      G
I would drink from a bottle labeled Sure Defeat.


            D                              C          G
I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
       D                           C          G
I'd take to the sky with all my might.
 G
No more drowning in my sorrow,
 G                                      C
no more drowning in my fright,
              G                                    D         G
I'd just ride on the backs of the angels tonight.

                 G
Then the skies, they fell open
           C
and my eyes were opened
         G                                        D
to a world of hope falling at my feet.
              G
Now I've no more or less
            C
than anyone else has,
             G                         D            G
what I have is a gift of life I can't repeat.

        G
So I go up Poughkeepsie,
         C
look out o'er the Hudson
          G                                D
and I cast my worries to the sky.
            G
Now I still know sorrow,
               C
but I can fly like the sparrow
              G                                    D           G
'cause I ride on the backs of the angels tonight.

           D                              C          G
I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
       D                           C          G
I'd take to the sky with all my might.
 G
No more drowning in my sorrow,
 G                                      C
no more drowning in my fright,
              G                                    D        G
I'll just ride on the backs of the angels each night.
