 Every Angel In Heaven
George Callins and Carla Olson


Garrett Waller pulled out of Memphis
Can't go back to Tennessee
Worked the day and I knew I was through
On a farm in the Shenandoah Valley
And Atlanta got too crowded
So I crept out without a sound
I was drunk and I can't remember
Even the Wallens ran me out of town
So I tried to settle down one summer
But from love I fell from grace
How the bridge in that cold November
I thought I'd disappear without a trace

And then I saw every Angel in Heaven
I saw them dressed as white as light
And then all of my despair I could see them standing there
To help me through that lonely night
Help me through that lonely night

Spent some time in a Texas prison
The man said he wanted my life
He thought I'd cheated him so he came at me
With a gun but I had a knife
When I got out I kept on wonderin'
Texas was no place to be
The man had killed and lots of family there
And all of them were trying to find me

And then I saw every Angel in Heaven
I saw them dressed as white as light
And then all of my despair I could see them standing there
To help me through that lonely night
Help me through that lonely night

Every time I find myself at the end of my rope
There's a noose waiting for me to be hung
And when I get the mind I put it over my head
The Angels always seem to come
The Angels always seem to come

I was standing on the platform
Found a ticket on the ground
Don't matter where it takes me
Anywhere is somewhere bound
I was crushing out my last smoke
As the train pulled in on time
The conductor waved his lantern
As a bell began to chime

And then I saw every Angel in Heaven
I saw them dressed as white as light
And then all of my despair I could see them standing there
To help me through this lonely night
Help me through this lonely night
Help me through this lonely night
Help me through this lonely night
