Angeles
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Someone's always comin' around here, trailin' some new kill
Says, "I've seen your picture on a hundred dollar bill"
What's a game of chance to you, to him is one of real skill
So glad to meet you, Angeles

Pickin' up the ticket shows there's money to be made
Go on, lose the gamble, that's the history of the trade
Did you add up all the cards left to play to zero
And sign up with evil, Angeles?
Don't start me tryin' now
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh
'Cause I'm all over it, Angeles

I can make you satisfied in everything you do
All your secret wishes could right now be coming true
And be forever with my poison arms around you
No one's gonna fool around with us
No one's gonna fool around with us
So glad to meet you, Angeles

Lyrics:

Someone's always coming around here trailing some new kill
Says, "I've seen your picture on a hundred-dollar bill"
What's a game of chance to you
To him is one
Of real skill
So glad to meet you, Angeles

Picking up the ticket shows, there's money to be made
Go on, lose the gamble. That's the history of the trade
Did you add up all the cards left to play
To zero
And sign up with evil, Angeles?

Don't start me trying now
Uh huh, uh huh, uh huuuh
'Cause I'm all over it, Angeles

I can make you satisfied in everything you do
All your secret wishes could right now be coming true
And be forever with my poison arms
Around you
No one's gonna fool around with us
No one's gonna fool around with us
So glad to meet you, Angeles

Don't start me trying now

I could make you satisfied in everything you do
All your “secret wishes” could right now be coming true
And be forever with my poison arms around you
No one's gonna fool around with us
No one's gonna fool around with us
So glad to meet you

Mr. James

I'm always looking for any more interviews he gave that I havnt seen already. Since he didn't give a lot I highly doubt there is any rock I havnt already overturned.

thanks slim moon.

I tried learning this on the guitar. I got the first ten seconds down, but then I just lose the ability to play the rest in spite of the hours I put into it.
The fact that Elliott can simultaneously play this on the acoustic and sing a rather verbose song shows his immense talent.

It took me a long time back when I was a teenager but I eventually managed to do it with a fraction of Elliott's talent.. don't give up!

@Rod Vazquez agreed

Rod Vazquez

@Ethereal Bukkake yeah, I think it's kinda more like muscle memory with fingerpicking than memorizing chords. Once you get it, you got it forever

Ethereal Bukkake

I'm not trying to gloat or brag, or say the word "but." It took me a long time to learn this around 10 years ago and I have never forgotten how to play it to this day. I went a year without a guitar and after getting one, this was like riding a bike. As others said, don't give up. Once you learn this, you'll never forget it

Rod Vazquez

Nah it's a basic bass pattern, playing the banjo gets you rly good at fingerpicking tho lmao

It's been 16 years since he died today. I still listen to his stuff every day. We love and miss you Elliott.
