Seven Spanish Angels

Willie Nelson et Ray Charles

He looked down into her blue 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

Ghost riders in the sky

cash-nelson

An old cowboy went riding out one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
When all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw
A-plowing through the ragged sky and up the cloudy draw

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
For he saw the Riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry

Yippie yi Yaaaaay
Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Ghost Riders in the sky

As the riders loped on by him he heard one call his name
If you want to save your soul from Hell a-riding on our range
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
Trying to catch the Devil’s herd, across these endless skies

Yippie yi Yaaaaay
Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Ghost Riders in the sky

Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with sweat
He’s riding hard to catch that herd, but he ain’t caught ’em yet
‘Cause they’ve got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
On horses snorting fire as they ride on hear their cry

Yippie yi Yaaaaay
Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Ghost Riders in the sky
Ghost Riders in the sky
