Angel of the Morning

lyrics by Chip Taylor/ Brian Ruhe

(based on the song sung by Juice Newton)

There’ll be no strings to bind your hands
Not if my love can’t bind your heart.
And there’s no need to take a stand
For it was I who chose to start.
I see no need to take me home,
I’m strong enough to face the world.

Just call me deva of the morning, deva
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, Hitler.
Just call me deva of the morning, deva
Then slowly turn away… from me.

Maybe the sun’s light will be dim

The devas come in my sleep somehow.
If morning’s echo sends a message,
Well, it was what I wanted now.
And if we’re energized in the night,
I won’t be blinded by the light.

Just call me deva of the morning, deva
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, Hitler.
Just call me deva of the morning, deva
Then slowly turn away,
I won’t beg you to stay… with me

oh tee…. oh babe…. oh me’s (this is an attempt to write down what Juice Newton sang in the YouTube video)

Hi-i-it-ler!

Just call me deva of the morning, deva
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, Hitler.
Just call me deva of the morning, deva
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, Hitler
Just call me deva of the morning, deva

Just touch my cheek before you leave me, Hi-itler…!
