Performer: Hank Williams, Sr. Words and music: Hank Williams, Sr. 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 CHORUS: [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.
