Patience of Angels (Boo Hewerdine)

Written & performed by Boo Hewerdine, but I don't know of a recording of it by
him.  Eddi Reader has recorded it, it's on her first album (called Eddi

            G               D                 C                   D
   From the top  of the     bus           she thought she saw him wave
    she saw Tuesdays and forgetfulness and a  little    money     saved
Does she know ?    I don't know     but from  here    I   can     tell

              G       D                   C           D
That it would try        the patience of angels
     it would try        the patience of angels

            G               D                C                   D
   And you know something's wrong  when the  morning hurts your eyes
   you'll be waiting 'til  you  die
    Would I be   any   good       and if I   was   would   I    find


            G         D                C          D
 There's a door in  a wall  in a       house in a street
               she's the patience of

            G            D                 C          D
Does she   know? I don't know    but from  here I can tell
 There's a door in a     wall  in      a   house in a street
               she's the patience
        of angels

Strumming is:

     |x-----------------x-x------x--------x--------x--------|      = 1 bar
beats 1        2        3        4        5        6

6 beats per bar, one chord per bar. Play the 6th beat as the top 4 strings
open (DGBe = ?Gadd6) in every bar. (This sounds right and it gives you ages to
make the chord change!)

Suggest picking out the lines marked < x > by singing them an octave higher
than the rest.

Chords are standard (open) fingerings.

This G D C D stuff is a bit of an oversimplification. Live, there seems to be
some melody going on on the top two strings, but I haven't worked out what
he's doing. Still, this should be enough to carry the tune in the

Boo plays this live in Db (capo at 6th fret), Eddi Reader's album version is
in Bb (capo 3), I can't get above B (Capo 4) if I'm going to hit the next
octave in the vocal- just play it in as high a key as you can.

Also, if it's quiet you can try an arpeggio intro:

      E ----------3------------------2----------------0---------------2-----
      B ------------3--------------2---3----------------1-----------2---3---
      A ------5-------------------------------3-----------------------------||
      E -3------------------------------------------------------------------
         G(barre 3)         D                 C               D
