Gregg Allman - "I'm No Angel"




Gregg Allman was undoubtedly among rock and roll's greatest and most significant artists, his soul-fired and still utterly distinctive voice one of the defining sounds in all of American music. From his founding role in the one and only Allman Brothers Band to his long and storied solo career, Allman consistently proved himself to be an iconic singer/songwriter and exceptional practitioner of the American blues tradition.


Allman accrued a remarkable list of honors over his five decade career, including the ABB's 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award at the 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards. Allman detailed his brilliant career in 2012's acclaimed memoir, My Cross To Bear. Now available in both hardcover and paperback, the New York Times bestseller chronicles an astonishing life and creative journey burdened by unimaginable loss, alcohol and drug addiction, told with clear-eyed wisdom and sharp hindsight.





Lyrics


No I'm no angel, No I'm no stranger to the street

I've got my label, So I won't crumble at your feet

And I know baby, So I've got scars upon my cheek

And I'm half crazy, Come on and love me baby


So you find me hard to handle, well I'm easier to hold

So you like my spurs that jingle and I never leave you cold

So I might steal your diamonds I'll bring you back some gold

I'm no angel


No I'm no angel, No I'm no stranger to the dark

Let me rock your cradle, Let me start a fire with your spark

Oh come on baby, Come and let me show you my tatoo

Let me drive you crazy, Come on and love me baby


So you don't give a darn about me, I never treat you bad

I won't ever lift a hand to hurt you & I'll always leave you glad

So I might steal your diamonds I'll bring you back some gold

I'm no angel


LEAD


No I'm no angel, No I'm no stranger to the dark

Let me rock your cradle, Let me start a fire with your spark

Oh come on baby, Come and let me show you my tatoo

Let me drive you crazy, Come on and love me baby
