"Sweet Little Angel " as written by and Lucille Bogan....
I've got a sweet black angel, I likes the way she spread her wing
I've got a sweet black angel, I likes the way she spread her wing
When she spread her wings over me, I gets joy and ev'rything

If my black angel should quit me, I believe that I would die
If my black angel should quit me, I believe that I would die
If you don't love me black angel, please tell me the reason why

Well all right man... (guitar solo)
Ask my black angel for a nickel, and she give me a ten dollar bill
Ask my black angel for a nickel, and she give me a ten dollar bill
Told I want a small drink of liquor, and she bought me a whiskey still

    General CommentShe loves her man who is generous with cash and booze, and she doesn't want him to leave her. Many of BMT's songs have to do with prohibition.
