Jimmy LaFave – Only One Angel

Posted on Updated on

Last video from the Timberline 75th birthday concert, this from Jimmy LaFave’s early set. The original is from his ‘Austin Skyline’ album. Careful ears will hear my friend Rob’s son Nate giggling in the background. 🙂

I could fly through a midnight rain
And be safe and warm and dry, baby
At the mention of your name
And always sing your special song and know deep inside that spirit, girl
That nothing could go wrong
If you want to know what pulls me through
I have only one angel, babe, that one angel is you

And I could run through the desert wind
’Til the day would leave me breathless, baby
Searching for words again
And hope that you could hear that sound
In streams of magic colors that are painted across the ground
If you gotta know what pulls me through
I have only one angel, babe, that one angel is you

And I’ll always take you with me like a charm
You keep me in the good light safe from harm
You chase the dark clouds far away
You keep my feet from turning into clay

If I could send out a melody
Do you suppose when the word got out that the circle would reach to me
And cross that line in some distant land
Where the silver strings that ring, my friends, are played by ancient hands
If you want to know what pulls me through
I have only one angel, babe, that one angel is you
