My Angel Of Mercy

My angel of mercy – She stays down in Storyville
Knows how to make an ol’ man – Feel like a king
I bring her flowers – She plays like we’re in love
She touch my soul, Man – Make my heart sing

I know it’s only make believe - But it’s all that I’ve got
To keep me from slipping away
When we’re together – Well, it sure means a lot
Helps me make it through another day

Some kind of miracle – Sent down from above
Gives someone who’s helpless – Reason to live
She holds me in her arms – Calls me her sweet, sweet man
She gives her all until there’s – None left to give

I wish that I could tell her – Lord, the way that I feel
But I’m afraid she wouldn’t let me stay
If I thought God could reach down – and make our love real
I would get down right now on my knees and pray

My angel of mercy – She stays down in Storyville
She’s my special someone – My only flame
She may see other men – But they don’t care like I do
She may lay down with ‘em – But it just can’t be the same

I know it’s only make believe - But it’s all that I’ve got
To keep me from slipping away
When we’re together – Well, it sure means a lot
Helps me make it through another day
