Lyrics by Hank Williams. Music and Arrangement by The Great Republic of Rough and Ready.

lyrics

In the great book of John you’re warned of the day
When you’ll be laid beneath the cold clay
The Angel of Death will come from the sky
And claim your poor soul when the time comes to die

When the Angel of Death comes down after you
Can you gladly say that you have been true
For you’ll have to go all the way by yourself
When God shall send down the Angel of Death

When the lights all grow dim and the dark shadows creep
And the ones who love you are gathered to weep
Can you face them and say with your dying breath
You’re ready to meet the Angel of Death

When the Angel of Death comes down after you
Can you gladly say that you have been true
For you’ll have to go all the way by yourself
When God shall send down the Angel of Death
