Willie Nelson’s “Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground” – Throwback Thursday Lunchtime Leftover

It’s Throwback Thursday and that means you get to hear great songs from the 80’s, 90’s and the early 2000’s that you don’t get to hear everyday on K-FROG.

I get tons of requests during the All Request Drive Thru Lunch. Sometimes there are some really awesome song requests that I just don’t have time to play. That’s why I’ve decided to do the Throwback Thursday Lunchtime Leftover.

In my opinion Willie Nelson is one of the most talented singer/songwriters to ever exist. One of my all-time favorite songs from Willie is “Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground.” It’s a simple, yet pretty and lonely sounding song.

“Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground” was featured in the 1981 movie Honeysuckle Rose. The song was of course written and performed by Willie Nelson and the single was Willie Nelson’s seventh number one hit on the country music chart.

There are different discussions about who the song was written about. Willie Nelson did claim at one time that it was about his wife Connie.

If you had not have fallen
Then I would not have found you
Angel flying too close to the ground
And I patched up your broken wing and hung around a while
Trying to keep your spirits up and your fever down

I knew someday that you would fly away
For love’s the greatest healer to be found
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground

Fly on, fly on past, the speed of sound
I’d rather see you up than see you down
So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground.

So leave me if you need to, I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground.
