   ANGELS WORKING OVERTIME    Deana Carter


G#
She was born at a rest stop at the Kansas state line
G#
In the back of a dodge in the summertime
C#
Her mamma names her Indiana like the license plate
C#
And with the hum of the tires on the interstate
          G#
She was crying
G#
They left her at a Denny's up in Colorado
G#
In a blanket with her name written on a note
            C#
It said, "Forgive us, Lord, for not taking her
C#
But this child has a better chance of making it
     G#            D# 
In someone else's arms

CHORUS:
G#             C#   G#                C#  
It's a crazy thing Fate has perfect wings
G#                    C#                  D#       G#   
All the way down the line angels working overtime-ime
                                         (angels working overtime)


G#
She was raised in a place called Shining Wells
G#
But she never fit in and everyone can tell
C#
That she didn't belong in some prairer town
C#
When she turned eighteen she bought a ticket out 
      G#
On a grey hound
G#
They stopped a few minutes out of Santa Fe
G#
She got out for a smoke and they drove away
C#
She hitched a ride with a boy right out of school
C#
Said I'm headed out west and she said , "me too."
    G#       D#
It felt so right

Go to chorus, to lead,
G#
Took a couple hundred miles till they fell in love
G#
And forever was the only thing good enough
           C#
And in a moment of passion in a motel room
C#
They held on tight and the aim was true
             G#              C#    G#          C#    
Now their counting down the days dreaming all night
             G#           D#
And in an apartment in L.-A.

Go to chorus
G#
She was born at a rest stop at the Kansas state line
C#              D#      G# 
Angels working overtime-ime
