More tab from the acoustic guitar list. It would help if you could
just send an echo acknowledgement when you get these.  Thanks,

  An........gels    laid  him    a.......way


Bob shot one and Louis shot two
but Barnes shot Collins, shot him through and through -
now angels have laid him away.

Chorus

When they heard that Louis was dead
all the people dressed in red,
'cos angels have laid him away.

Chorus

Oh, kind friends now ain't it hard
to see poor Louis in a new graveyard
where angels laid him away.

Chorus

Miz Collins weep, Miz Collins moan
to see your son Louis leave his home -
angels laid him away.

Chorus
