I grew up in Chattanooga, Tenesse
One of mister Hoover's ville's with my family

I know poor
I know most people don't
I could tell you stories
But I won't

Nothing robs a soul faster than hunger
Even as a little girl, I'd wonder

Will the angels fly above my bed tonight?
Will the stars come out and bathe me in their light?
Will the circle draw in close and hold me tight?
Will the angels fly above my bed tonight?

I married Buddy before the war
We raised a girl we both adored
I watched her grow and start a family of her own
And I died inside when the cancer took her home

Because nothing robs a soul faster than losing a child
All that I could think about for a while

Will the angels fly above my bed tonight?
Will the stars come out and bathe me in their light?
Will the circle draw in close and hold me tight?
Will the angels fly above my bed tonight?

I have reached the end of my long life
I have been a mother and a wife
I've known sad, I've known love
And I screamed out at God and heaven above

Because nothing steals a soul faster than being alone
And I wonder as I'm waiting to go home

Will the angels fly above my bed tonight?
Will the stars come out and bathe me in their light?
Will the circle draw in close and hold me tight?
Will the angels fly above my bed tonight?

Oh, will the angels fly above my bed tonight?
