  • 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 altar 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 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
    But her final prayer was answered
    When the rifles fired again

    There were seven Spanish angels
    At the altar 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

    There were seven Spanish angels
    At the altar 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

    There were seven Spanish angels
    At the altar 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 Writer/s: Eddie F. Setser, Troy Harold Seals
