A         /A             
He looked/ down into her blue eyes, and said
E7
"Say a prayer for me".  She 
E7              
Threw her arms around him, whispered
E7
"God will keep us free".
A           
They could hear the riders comin', He said
                 D    
"This is my last fight...If they 
                A
Take me back to Texas, they won't
E7             A
Take me back a-live.
----------------------------------------
CHORUS A:
A
There were seven Spanish angels, at the
              E7
altar of the sun.

They were prayin' for the lovers, in the
               A
valley of the gun.

When the /battle stopped and the smoke cleared,
                           D
there was thunder from the throne,
                  A              E7
And seven spanish angels, took a-nother 
      A
angel home.
-----------------------------------------

VERSE 2:
A          /
She reached down and picked the gun up, 
                        E7
that lay smokin in his hand.
                            
She said, "Father please forgive me;
                           A
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.
