Angel flying too close to the ground

I want to share one of my favorite romantic songs today. When I was growing up my mom always used to play Willie Nelson in the car with me and my brother. Over the summer I went back to her old cd’s and found one of Willie Nelson singing with other classic country singers. On the album is a heartbreakingly beautiful song between him and Patty Griffin called “Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground.” I can’t find that version anywhere on the internet, but here’s Willie Nelson singing a version by himself. I hope you like it.

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
Tried to keep your spirits up
And your fever down
I knew that someday 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
