Threefer! Angels From Montgomery

Today's a threefer, but I've split it into separate posts.

By John Prine
Rise Up Singing chapter: Hard Times & Blues, p.99
Verse: G C G C / G C D G ://
Chorus: G F C G / / / G C D G

I like John Denver's version a lot. The Yale acappella group "Tangled Up in Blue" is the one I heard performing this.

By the way, FYI:
A capella (Latin spelling)
A cappella (Italian spelling)
Acappella (rock & roll spelling)

If you can lay your hands of the album "Cigars, Acappella, Candy" by all means snap it up. It's a gem, made by the Belmonts after Dion ditched them. And Dion made some good stuff after that split, but nothing as pure and sweet as this album by three fading rockers who loved Doo-Wop.
