He looked down into her brown eyes
Said, " Say a prayer for me"
She threw her arms around him
Whispered, "God will keep us free"
And 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"
And there were seven spanish angels
At the altar of the sun
They were prayin' for the lovers
In the valley of the gun
And 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
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
