Capo 2nd fret (he has played it open in concert as well) All chords are relative to the capo There are two progressions C5 F5 , C5 G5 C5 E5 G5 C5 F5 , C5 G5 C5 C5 The angel of the Holy Grail F5 saw Galahad come riding C5 G5 C5 So he took the Holy Grail off the shelf. C5 And inside the holy chapel made for F5 Holy Grail hiding the angel C5 G5 C5 Could be seen to smile to himself. E5 G5 "If you're the great Sir Galahad C5 F5 From now on," said the angel C5 G5 C5 "May all angels call me blessed of my race." E5 G5 "If you're not the great Sir Galahad C5 F5 C5 I'll warn you, keep on riding and if you are G5 C5 I pray you'll let me see your face." C5 Galahad took off his helmet, said F5 "Good angel look upon me. C5 G5 C5 Fear not, for I bring tidings of great joy. C5 For long years the grail you've guarded, now F5 You get to let me drink it, how C5 G5 C5 Happy must be angels thus employed." CFCGC C5 "All the favors you shower upon F5 Me, a simple angel," said the C5 G5 C5 Angel, "your magnificence abounds. C5 Take your boots off great Sir Galahad, F5 For by your astounding beauty whatever C5 G5 C5 Ground you stand on turns to holy ground." C5 Galahad took off his boots, and he F5 Watched the ground quite closely C5 G5 C5 And the angel smiled to himself again. C5 He said, "I can't believe I'm asking, but F5 Sir Galahad please tell me, what is C5 G5 C5 It that makes you want to go to heaven? E5 G5 In heaven there's no lamb chops, C5 F5 Queen Guinevere's for hand jobs, C5 G5 C5 Marijuana, Kenny Rogers, or Ecstasy. E5 G5 No pillaging, no rape, perhaps C5 F5 you've come by some mistake to me C5 G5 C5 this seems more error than knight errantry. CFCGC x2 C5 Yes, and what about the stable boys, F5 I know you think they're handsome C5 G5 C5 and some of them , they think you're awful handsome too. C5 And, sitting up in heaven, you'll still F5 think about them often, when you're an C5 G5 C5 angel thinking's all that you can do." E5 G5 At this, Sir Galahad got angry, C5 F5 "Angel," he said, "don't you tempt me. C5 G5 C5 I wish to go to heaven and not to hell. E5 G5 So when stable boys look lonesome, C5 F5 When the women call me handsome, C5 G5 C5 I'll hold me virtue very firmly by myself." C5 "I guarantee you'll hold it often," F5 said the angel. "Oh one more thing, before you C5 G5 C5 drink the wine, please take your armor off. C5 I gotta carry you to heaven, F5 And despite what you'd imagine, C5 G5 C5 I have trouble bearing heavy things aloft." CFCGC x2 C5 Sir Galahad stood naked F5 In a pile of his armor, C5 G5 C5 His boots and helmet scattered all around. C5 His perfect lips, they sipped the grail, F5 His perfect heart commenced to fail, C5 G5 C5 His perfect body fell upon the ground. E5 G5 The angel lit a cigarette. C5 F5 When he was sure Galahad was dead, C5 G5 C5 He picked all of his clothes up off the floor. E5 G5 Then I put on his boots and armor C5 F5 I laid his body on the altar C5 G5 C5 Put his helmet on and I headed for the door.
