Angel Eyes – Matt Dennis!
Try to think that love’s not around,
but it’s uncomfortably near.
My old heart ain’t gaining no ground,
because my angel eyes ain’t here.
Angel eyes, that old devil sent,
they glow unbearably bright.
Need I say that my love’s misspent,
mispent with angel eyes tonight
So drink up all you people,
order anything you see.
Have fun you happy people,
the drinks and the laughs are on me.
Pardon me but I got to run,
the fact’s uncommonly clear.
Got to find who’s now number one,
and why my angel eyes ain’t here.
Excuse me while I disappear.

If you have practiced your chords in every position you can easily add them, no matter where your walking bass leads you.
