RIFF

The progression of notes is as follows: C D C B C A G G

I haven't been able to duplicate the riff at the speed Jewel does it, but
my slow-motion approximation sounds like this:

E-------------------|     p - pull off
B-------------------|     h - hammer on
G-------------------|
D----0--------------|
A--3---3p2h3p0------|
E--------------3-3--|

The chord progression C Am G is a decent substitute for this bit.



INTRO

C C2 C riff G G6 G7


CHORUS 1

       C C2 C F      G      C C2 C
Said, "Angel, Do you want a ride?"

       C G    F                 G
Said, "Angel, I'm tired and I'm lonely

F              G          C C2 C riff G G6 G7
And I need somebody by my side"


VERSE 1

C             C2 C
It's a long road 

G                            
that stretched from Vegas to nowhere

C                     C2     C
But it'd been an even longer time

G                         G6 G7
Since he found some piece of mind

C                   C2            C
And he lived off of bubblegum and cigarettes

G                            
And got his nourishment from all-night stores

C                 C2      C
Thought he'd just keep on driving

G                   G6 G7
Til he outdrove his sorrow
   

CHORUS 2

He said, "Angel, Oh do you want a ride?"
Said "Angel, I'm tired and I'm lonely
And I need somebody by my side"
   

VERSE 2

Her feet were worn and tired
But as restless as her soul
She left with no regrets
But also no possessions did she own
Her heart was as fragile as 
her thin, loving arms
She's praying to God to take away her lonely
When he pulled over on the side of the road


CHORUS 3
   
And he said, "Angel, Oh do you want a ride?"
Said, "Angel, I'm tired and I'm lonely
And I need somebody by my side"


VERSE 3
   
The highway goes on forever
I've seen a thousand men like him before
And I've seen a thousand angels that
Got into the car
They're just a couple of lost souls
Looking to rekindle some sort of forgotten dream
I hope they find what they're looking for
In the solace of the road


CHORUS 4

            C C2 C F      G      C C2 C
They said, "Angel, Do you want a ride?"

       C G    F                 G
Said, "Angel, I'm tired and I'm lonely

F                 G
I'm tired and I'm lonely

F                 G
I'm tired and I'm lonely

      F                G
And I need to have somebody

      C
By my angel"
