THE ANGEL OF DEATH Lyrics - Hank Williams
Review The Song (1)
Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.
In the [E] great book of John - you're [A] warned of the [E] day
When you'll be laid - beneath the cold [B7] clay
The [E] Angel of Death - will [A] come from the [E] sky
And claim your poor soul - when the [B7] time comes to [E] die.
When The Angel of Death - comes [A] down after [E] you
Can you smile and say - that you have been [B7] true
Can you [E] truthfully say - with [A] your dying [E] breath
That you're ready to meet - the [B7] Angel of [E] death.
When the [E] lights all grow dim - and the [A] dark shadows [E] creep
And then your loved ones - are gathered to [B7] weep
Can you [E] face them and say - with [A] your dying [E] breath
That you're ready to meet - the [B7] Angel of [E] Death.
Writer: WILLIAMS, SR.
