Seven Spanish angels

Troy Seals and Eddie Setser

He looked down into her brown eyes
and said Say a prayer for me
She threw her arms around him
Whispered God will keep us free
They could hear the riders comin’
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 alter of the Sun
They were prayin’ for the lovers
In the valley of the gun
And when the battle stopped
And the smoke cleared
There was thunder from the throne
And seven Spanish angels
Took another angel home

She reached down and picked the gun up
That lay smokin’ 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
Her final prayer was answered
When the rifles fired again
