G            C              G                C
Pretty as an angel from the day that she was born 
G               C               G             D
Skin as fair as Lily's hair, as golden as the corn 
G                      C                G                C
They knew that she was special from the moment she first cried 
G         C        D     G
She was a mountain angel certified 
G                   C         G               C
She was her momma's baby, she was her daddy's pride 
G                C                     G              C
Good at home, at church and school, at everything she tried 
G           C             G                    C
Everybody's darlin' led a charmed and peaceful life 
G                    C      D      G
The perfect mountain angel 'til he arrived 

G     C      G
And ohh, she fell so deeply 
G   C               G
Ooooh, she couldn't stop 
G                   C              G          C
She gave herself to him, milled it completely 
G                C    D          G
He lifted her so high he let her drop 

G           C                       G               C
She gave up everything for him that mattered in her life 
G                       C                 G               D
All the others that had loved her and she vowed to be his wife 
G                      C              G           C
She dreamed of bearing children in an ivy-covered house 
G                    C        D         G
The mountain angel's sunshine turned to clouds 
G                   C        G               C
The wicked handsome stranger left the way he came 
G                   C
Broke her heart and broke her mind 
G                 D
She never was the same 
Em                  C
They say he was the devil 
G                          C
That had come to steal her soul 
G               C       D      G
She never loved another it was told 
G                  C
They say she had a baby 
G                    C
Some say that it had died 
G                 C
They it's just as well 
          G                D
As it had been the devil's child 
G                      C
They say good conquers evil 
G                      C
But here, evil won the prize 
G               C     D           G
So the mountain angel took to the wild 

G     C               G
And ooh, she couldn't take it 
G                        C                   G
Years passed and she had long since lost her mind 
G                  C             G     C
She waited for him as her beauty faded 
G                     C     D            G
Her parents died from grief before their time 

G                   C             G                   C
She tried to gather pieces of her life, they wouldn't fit 
G                     C           G                    D
Beside the tiny grave deep in the woods is where she'd sit 
G              C                  G                 C
Talking to the child, herself, to him, who knew for sure 
G                     C       D      G
Possessed they say by satan's insane lure 

G              C             G                    C
High a'top the mountain, for years they say she's seen 
G            C                   G                 D
Looking down upon the town where she had once been queen 
G                      C                     G               C
She'd sneak around the playground, watch the little children play 
G              C          D        G
They'd see the crazy lady then run away 
G                         C                G             C
They say she roamed these hills for years, wearing not a stitch 
G                   C         G               D
The lovely mountain angel now thought to be a witch 
G                      C
She made those wailing mournful sounds 
     G              C
That you could hear for miles 
G                   C             D                G
Long after she laid down upon her baby's grave and died 

G     C               G
And ooh, her ghost is callin' 
G                     C             G
She's waiting for the ones that she adored 
G                          C                 G
Through spring and summer, fall when snow is fallin' 
G                C           D       G
Her spirit roams these hills forever more 
G                    C      D    G
The mountain angel's voices ever more
