An Angel Was She

Oh an Angel so sweet
I met one winter day
She lyed a kiss upon my lips
and I begged her to stay

Oh an Angel so beautiful
that I would hope to see her everyday
She left me for another
one more kinder than I

Oh an Angel so honest
that she tried to make amends
Foolish was I, that I shoved her away
Never to see what might have been

An angel, was she
and the devil, was I
she flew away like a bird
while I lay here to die
