Description
I've loved this Willie Nelson song since the first time I heard it. It became extra special to my wife in 2008 when she cared for an angel flying too close to the ground, one of our little granddaughters, for about three months. Here is my live stab of this classic tune, performed at the Californian Convalescent Hospital. This is song #8 uploaded over the last couple months from that day's field recording in 2008.
Willie Nelson - what a treasure!

Lyrics
If you had not have fallen
Then I would not have found you
Angel flying too close to the ground
And I patched up your broken wing and hung around a while
Trying to keep your spirits up and your fever down

I knew someday that you would fly away
For love's the greatest healer to be found
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground

Fly on, fly on past, the speed of sound
I'd rather see you up than see you down
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground.

So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground.

- Willie Nelson

Daug,
Yeah, my stash that's been hid away for about 7 years. Having little to no time of late to work on any existing song sketches, let alone record them as new songs, these rough recordings allow me to share an enjoyable period of four years when I uses to do this gig once a month. The series continues...
Thanks.

Hey Jack
Nelson has the best dope, no so you? Send him $8,000 an he will sing on your tune, 15 years ago or more this has been the rule. My hat is off to you for your volunteer work, keep it coming! Good work rewarded!

If you catch Willie after some "secret sauce " on the bus he might be cheaper! Your heart shines through Jack.... Love this series of tunes.

So was that the secret of his singer/songwriter abilities? Gotta get me some. Thanks, JH, for the listen and comments...
