THE ANGEL OF DEATH
CAPO: 2nd Fret/KEY: E/PLAY: D
In the [D] great book of John - you're [G] warned of the [D] day
When you'll be laid - beneath the cold [A7] clay
The [D] Angel Of Death - will [G] come from the [D] sky
And claim your poor soul - when the time [A7] comes to [D] die
[D] When the Angel Of Death - comes [G] down after [D] you
Can you smile and say - that you have been [A7] true
Can you [D] truthfully say - with [G] your dyin' [D] breath
That you're ready to meet - the [A7] Angel Of [D] Death.
When the lights all grow dim - and the dark shadows creep
And then your loved ones - are gathered to weep
Can you face them and say - with your dying breath
That you're ready to meet - the Angel Of Death.
