Angel

Seven Spanish Angels

He looked down into the brown eyes
And said " Say a prayer for me "
And she threw her arms around him
Whispered "God will keep us free"
They could hear the riders coming
He said "This is my last fight,
"If they take me back to Texas,
"They won't take me back alive"

There were seven Spanish angels
At the altar of the Sun
They were praying for the lovers
In the Valley of the Gun
When the battle stopped and the smoke cleared
There was thunder from the throne
And seven Spanish angels
Took another angel home

Angel                                             Angel


She reached down and picked the gun up
That lay smoking in his hand
She said "Father please forgive me,
"I can't make it without my man"
And she knew the gun was empty
And she knew she couldn't win
But her final prayer was answered
When the rifles fired again

Angel                                             Angel


There were seven Spanish angels
At the altar of the Sun
They were praying for the lovers
In the Valley of the Gun
When the battle stopped and the smoke cleared
There was thunder from the throne
And seven Spanish angels
Took another angel home

Angel                                             Angel


There were seven Spanish angels
(at the altar)
At the altar of the Sun (oh I believe)
They were praying for the lovers
(yeah they was)
In the Valley of the Gun
(well, well, well)

Angel                                             Angel


When the battle stopped and the smoke cleared
(there was thunder)
There was thunder from the throne
(oh yeah)
And seven Spanish angels
Took another angel home
