Seven spanish angels  Willie Nelson

------------------------------------------

[A]He looked/[/A] 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
"This is my last [D]fight...If they
Take me back to [A]Texas, they won't
[E7]Take me back a-[A]live.
----------------------------------------
CHORUS A:
[A]There were seven Spanish angels, at the
altar of the s[E7]un.

They were prayin' for the lovers, in the
valley of the g[A]un.

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

VERSE 2:
[A]She reached down and picked the gun up,
that lay smokin in his h[E7]and.
She said, "Father please forgive me;
I can't make it without my [A]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.
----------------------------------------

CHORUS 2: (1/2 step higher): **REPEAT ONCE
Bflat
(x88766)

There were seven Spanish angels, at the

They were prayin' for the lovers, in the

When the /battle stopped and the smoke cleared,
                           ([Cm]xx5543)
there was thunder from the throne,

And seven spanish angels, took a-nother
Bflat (x88766)
