‘Miller’s Angels’

No Comments »

Can’t you hear me cause I’m screaming. I didn’t go outside yesterday. Don’t wake me please don’t wake me. Cause I was dreaming …


Guitar 1 is an acoustic, tuned down 1/2 step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
Guitar 2 is an electric, tuned down 1/2 step
Guitar 3 is an octave mandolin, tuned down 1/2 (Gb Db Ab Eb)
Guitar 4 is a pedal steel

Note: All chords given are SOUNDING chords, not fretted chords

Note: Fills are numbered according to which guitar plays them;
I.E. Fill 2C is the third fill played by guitar 2

Note: Except for the bridge, both guitars 1 & 2 are playing very
intermittently, so their parts have all been labeled as fills.
Occasionally, during the choruses, guitar 1 strums the chords (1/2
step higher), but otherwise, everything is as notated. The mandolin
is only played during the bridge, and is tabbed for a mandolin, not
arranged for guitar. Lastly, there is a pedal steel, guitar 4,
which plays mostly chords and chord tones throughout the song. I
have not tabbed it’s part out.

Verse: (Band tacet, chords played by piano, bass)
Gm Bb F
Miller’s angels in black and white
Welcome everyone in
Children dreaming of wrong and right
Wrapped in grace and in sin

Chorus: (Pedal steel enters)

End on Bb

Miller’s angels in black and white
Welcome everyone in
Children dreaming of wrong and right
Wrapped in grace and in sin

They come out of the blue sky
They come out of the blue
They come out of the blue sky
But you never know where they’re gonna go
Hey Romeo

Miller’s fingers are traveling down the length of her thigh
But Miller’s mind is still wandering
Staring up at the sky

They come out of the blue sky
They come out of the blue
They come out of the blue sky
But you never know where they’re gonna go
Hey Romeo
You never know where they’re gonna go
Hey Romeo
Don’t, don’t come around

Miller’s angels are hovering in between the earth and the sun
In the shadow of god’s unwavering love
I am a fortunate son

They come out of the blue sky
They come out of the blue
They come out of the blue sky
But you never know where they’re gonna go
Hey romeo
But you never know where they’re gonna go
Hey Romeo

Can’t you hear me cause I’m screaming
Didn’t I go outside yesterday
Don’t wake me please don’t wake me
Cause I was dreaming
And I might just stay inside again today
I don’t go out much these days
Yes sometimes I stay inside all day

Won’t leave me leave me leave me leave me alone
Won’t you leave me leave me leave me alone
Won’t you leave me leave me leave me alone
Won’t you leave me leave me leave me alone
Won’t you leave me alone
