Sweet Little Angel

Lyrics: B.B.King
Music: B.B.King

Played at a Garcia & Wales concert on 26 January 1972, and at a Garcia & Sanders concert on 3 July 1974, both times with Roger Troy on vocals. In 1972, only one verse was sung:

I got a sweet little angel
Man you ought to see the way she spreads her wings
And I got a sweet little angel
Man you ought to see the way she spreads her wings
When she spreads them all around me
Lord you know I forget about all other things
The full B.B.King verson has two additional verses:
I've got a sweet little angel
I love the way she spread her wings
Yes got a sweet little angel
I love the way she spread her wings
Yes, when she spreads her wings around me
I get joy, and everything

Oh, if my baby should quit me
I believe I would die
Oh if my baby should quit me
Lord I do believe I would die
Yes if you don't love me little angel
Please tell me the reason why

You know I asked my baby for a nickel
And she gave me a $20 bill
Oh yes, I asked my baby for a nickel
And she gave me a $20 bill
Whoah, you know I ask her to buy a little drink of liquor
And she gave me a whiskey still
