Angel In Blue Lyrics

by J. Geils Band

We met in a bar out on Chesapeake Bay
With her white patent boots and her blouse red lame
A table top dancer, she would smile on cue
Oh, those lips of an angel, angel in blue

She'd been dancin' for ages through cities of bars
She was kickin' the habit of scoring in cars
She'd been drained of her spirit all caged up in this zoo
A wild cat angel, angel in blue

And as she stared out into nowhere
I thought, yes, I thought, she might break down and cry
Oh, when I whispered I thought I could love her
She just said, "Baby don't even bother to try"

And I watched as she spoke, her words chilled my bones
All her friends did her favors that were really just loans
And she never had dreams so they never came true
Oh, the palest of angels, angel in blue

And the bees they had stung her, the birds they had flown
There were guys she could number but none had she known
And she never had dreams so they never came true
Oh, my fade away angel, an angel in blue

Angel in blue
Angel in blue
Angel in blue
