Gary Fjellgaard Song Lyrics > Contenders Two: Still in the Running

Seven Spanish Angels

He looked down into her brown eyes
He said / Say a prayer for me
She threw her arms around him
Said / God will set us free
He could hear the riders comin
He said / This is my last fight
If they take me back to Texas
They wonít 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
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 smoking in his hand
She said / Father please forgive me
I canít make it without my man
She knew the gun was empty
She knew she couldnít win
Her final prayer was answered
When the rifles fired again
