Jimi Hendrix - Angel

Angel came down from heaven yesterday
She stayed with me just long enough to rescue he
And she told me a story yesterday,
About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea
And then she spread her wings high over me
She said she's gonna come back tomorrow

And I said "fly on my sweet angel,
Fly on through the sky,
Fly on my sweet angel,
Tomorrow I'm gonna be by your side"

Sure enough this morning came unto me
Silver wings silhouetted against the child's sunrise
And my angel she said unto
"today is the day for you to rise,
Take my hand, you're gonna be my man,
You're gonna rise"
And she took high over yonder

And I said "fly on my sweet angel,
Fly on through the sky,
Fly on my sweet angel,
Forever I will be by your side"

"Angel" is the name of a song written and recorded by Jimi Hendrix. It was first released in March 1971 on the posthumous LP The Cry of Love, and in April it was released on a single to promote the LP. In the US the single was backed with Freedom and in the UK with "Night Bird Flying". The LP charted, but the single didn't sell well'. The B side "Night Bird Flying" was the B side of the final single Hendrix had cut at Sterling Sound with Eddie Kramer, the A side of this single was the final Reprise USA & Canada single release "Dolly Dagger". Some of this song's lyrics were recited at Hendrix's funeral.
