Chords:
Transpose:
    CHORUS:
F C G FAngeline, Angeline, darker nights I've never seen
Am C GI don't love these East Texas pines
F C G Fmaj7Where I can't find my sleep in the shadows so deep
Am C GAnd dark as the doubts in my mind
VERSE 1:
Am C G FSlow train on the trestle, going east 'cross the Neches
Am C GLike the one I got off of a long time ago
F C G Fmaj7Outside of a little town where I never meant to settle down
Am C GNot knowing the seeds I would sow
VERSE 2:
Am C G FBarefoot in the autumn weeds, cotton dress hanging to your knees
Am C GTo the eyes of a stranger you offered a smile
Am C G Fmaj7I went to work in your daddy's fields, didn't seem like such a bad deal
Am C GAt least it would do for a while
VERSE 3:
Am C G FWe were both young and unabashed, we took what life offered
Am C GWhen the folks were distracted or too tired to care
Am C G Fmaj7With a frost on the land the fates forced our hand
Am C GYour dresses fit tighter with spring in the air
CHORUS:
F C G FAngeline, Angeline, darker nights I've never seen
Am C GI don't love these East Texas pines
F C G Fmaj7Where I can't find my sleep in the shadows so deep
Am C GAnd dark as the doubts in my mind
VERSE 4:
Am C G FNow I watch the trains rattle on from the seat of the tractor
Am C GYour daddy's old harness still hangs in the barn
Am C G Fmaj7And your mama don't like it that our children all scattered
Am C GShe swears it's my blood: it was not meant to farm
VERSE 5:
Am C G FAnd you and I don't talk a lot, we really don't have to
Am C GWe spent many years reading each other's minds
Am C G Fmaj7We used up the lightning, now we don't bother fighting
Am C GSuch things will happen in time
CHORUS:
F C G FAngeline, Angeline, darker nights I've never seen
Am C GI don't love these East Texas pines
F C G Fmaj7Where I can't find my sleep in the shadows so deep
Am C GAnd dark as the doubts in my mind
